Before talking about the Teflon hose, let’s have a simple understand of the Teflon material. Teflon is a kind of synthetic polymer materials and also called PTFE. You may feel strange to it, but it’s commonly used in our daily life, for example. the coat in pans and pipes.
- Acid and alkali resistant
- Solvents resistant
- High temperature resistant
- Low friction coefficient
Teflon will not reacted with 99% of the chemicals, and it will not corroded by chemical solvents as well. Besides, Weight and performance will not change even in boiled water.
What is the chemicals corrosion Teflon can resist
Like Sulfuric acid, hydrochloric acid, nitric acid, hydrofluoric acid and acetic acid (more that 80%)
Sodium hydroxide, calcium hydrosulfide, sodium sulfide, sodium ethoxide, etc.
Having a simple understand of Teflon, let’s learn the Teflon hose.
Characteristics of Teflon hose
The gunk is hard to stick on the Teflon hose. It’s easy to remove the hunk even if it stick on the hose.
Teflon Hose has excellent high and low temperature resistance, and you can constantly use it in the temperature from -70℃ to 260℃.
Teflon hose resists most of the corrosion from acid, alkali and chemicals, so it’s a good choice for chemical transfer.
Teflon hose is for heavy duty use. The hardness and abrasion resistance will be much more improved if combined with anodized film.
What’s the application of Teflon hose
Teflon hose is widely used in factory, chemical industry, laboratory and medicine industry for chemicals, corrosives and food transfer. Besides, it’s suitable for coat and wire insulation as well.
