Component Supply offers Zeus PTFE tubing in either 50-foot coils or 100-foot spools depending on the gauge size and wall thickness. This fluoropolymer component is strong, translucent, lightweight, and flexible tubing that maintains a high dielectric strength over a wide range of frequencies. PTFE (polytetrafluoroethylene), also known as Teflon® is chemically inert, has low extractables, and is chemically resistant to acids, bases, and all common solvents. With the lowest coefficient of friction of all fluoropolymers, PTFE is ideal for applications needing lubricious material. Additionally, PTFE’s biocompatibility, tight tolerances and resistance to a wide range of temperatures and chemicals benefit applications in a variety of industries. PTFE is resistant in the temperature range of 500°F (260°C) to -454°F (-270°C). The melting point is between 635-650°F, the tensile strength is between 2,500-4,000 psi and the specific gravity is between 2.13-2.24. Please refer to the chart below for other size specifications for this PTFE extruded tubing. This tubing can be EtO sterilized and autoclaved.
Markets & Applications ▼
Zeus PTFE tubing serves research and development applications in variety of markets including fluid management, automotive, aerospace, electrical, pharmaceuticals, fiber optics, and medical. Its ability to minimize friction is key in medical markets.
Vascular applications include:
- Structural heart repair
- Cardiac rhythm management
- Renal denervation
Non-vascular applications include:
- Cosmetic surgery
PTFE can be inserted into the body without concern for abrasion, and because it is chemically inert, the possibility of a reaction is limited. Therefore, it is a preferred choice for specific applications such as lining catheter IDs, guide wires, introducers and guiding catheters.
