FEP Tubing

 

FEP has very similar properties to PTFE, but has a lower maximum operating temperature of 200°C. However, this fluoroplastic can be processed by normal plastic methods.

 

Standard FEP Tubing

FEP tube is available in many standard sizes, from 0.2mm to 113mm ID. Find our FEP Tubing Sizes.

Do you require a complimentary sample to test our FEP tubing in your application? Contact our customer service team.

Special FEP Tubing

Each application has different demands and requirements, so we also produce special custom FEP tubing to order.

  • Special sizes: Virtually any size of FEP tube can be extruded from 0.2mm diameter to 113mm diameter.

  • Ready cut tubing: FEP tubing can be supplied cut to any length in any quantity, and we can supply straight lengths.

  • Coloured FEP tube: All tubing can be made in 14 different colours, including black tube. The pigmentation has a very insignificant impact on the technical properties of the FEP tubing.

  • Filled FEP Tube:  Standard fillers can be added to the FEP polymer during the extrusion process to aid with thermal conductivity, wear resistance and anti-static properties. Find out more about Filled Tubing.

  • Close tolerances: We specialise in making FEP tubing to very close tolerances for medical, electronic, and instrument applications.

  • Bespoke FEP tube fabrication: We can easily manipulate FEP tubing to your project requirements, including flanging, coiling, pre-form bending, swaging and closing. Find out more about Thermoforming and Manipulation of Fluoroplastics.
