PTFE Tubing

PTFE (polytetrafluoroethylene) tubing is chemically inert and suitable for lower pressure applications. Typically 1/16" OD tubing holds up to 62 bar (900 psi) and 1/8" up to 35 bar (500 psi). Maximum continuous operating temperature is 100°C.

PTFE tubing is available in a color-coded version for easy identification of the ID. Black PTFE, available in two IDs, is recommended for light sensitive applications such as enzymatic reactions, luminescent reactions, and connections to a flow cell, and radioactive HPLC.

TECH TIPS

  • Use PFA instead of PTFE if gas permeability is an issue.
  • Use black PTFE for for light sensitive applications such as enzymatic reactions, luminescent reactions, connection to a flow cell, and radioactive HPLC.
