What is PTFE Hose End?
PTFE Hose End, people also call it Teflon Hose End.
PTFE (Poly tetra fluoroethylene) is an engineered fluoropolymer. Outstanding resistance to chemicals is one of its primary attributes.
A broad temperature range of -54°C to 260°C makes this hose material suitable for the majority of fluids and ambient temperature conditions found in most industries. With all types of hose, increased working temperatures require a reduction in maximum rated working or burst pressure. Whenever excessive flexing, vibration, thermal fluctuations or rapid pressure impulsing is in evidence, further caution should be exercised in reducing the maximum working pressure.
An extremely low coefficient of friction (0.05 to 0.20) provides a non-stick surface. Water absorption of PTFE is negligible, less than 0.01% by ASTM test, and it is FDA-approved for food and pharmaceutical use. Additionally, PTFE will withstand flexing and vibration without failure from flex fatigue. PTFE is chemically inert.
It will not break down or deteriorate in service, and it has an unlimited shelf life because properties do not change with age or exposure to weather. PTFE hose can be used in aerospace, automotive, chemical and industrial applications.
