Texfluor™ PTFE tubing from Parker Hannifin’s (Forth Worth, TX) TexLoc facility is the most chemical and corrosive resistant tubing available, according to the company. PTFE can be used to replace glass, rubber, and stainless steel because of its corrosion resistance. It is resistant to aqua regina, hydrofluoric acid, and hydrogen peroxide, just to name a few. Only at temperatures above 620 degrees F, PTFE’s crystalline melting point, will some fluorinated lubricating oils swell PTFE. Texfluor™ PTFE tubing is odorless, tasteless, non-wetting, and non-leaching. Vibration damping properties of PTFE are also excellent at both sonic and ultrasonic frequencies.
