PTFE hoses

Metal hoses aren’t fit for every industry or every environment. PTFE hoses, on the contrary, are the perfect fit for almost all liquid, solid and gaseous media. It comes down to the excellent physical and mechanical properties of PTFE. Hoses out of PTFE will have an excellent chemical resistance, will be odorless and tasteless (important for FDA approval) and will exhibit a low coefficient of friction so media cannot attach itself to the hose.

Other benefits include the wide temperature range, the resistance to UV-light and wear and the anti-static properties. That makes PTFE the material of choice for hoses that transport a wide range of chemical products for the food and pharmaceutical industries. Vanéflon doesn’t only offer hoses in PTFE, for certain conditions PFA (higher temperatures, more resistant to bending), FEP (transparent or any color or pigmentation) or PTFE (non-stick properties) can provide a better alternative. Vanéflon’s experts can make the perfect match between your application and the most apt material.

Key properties:

  • Excellent chemical and corrosion resistance
  • Wide temperature and pressure range
  • Low coefficient of friction
  • Tasteless and odorless
  • Shock resistant
  • Anti-static properties
  • FDA approval

Applications:

  • Vibration dampers
  • Fuel and cooling systems
  • Transporting media in food and pharmaceutical industry
  • Cryogenic media
  • Insulating tube in electrical applications
