PTFE Hose Products
As one of the leading PTFE hose manufacturers in Germany, we offer a multifaceted production program of the highest quality. At our plant in Krefeld, we process PTFE (polytetrafluoroethylene) and other fluoroplastics on modern production machines, which are constantly being further developed. In hose manufacturing, we always use raw materials of the highest quality from certified manufacturers. In the following pages you will find an overview of our diverse PTFE hose production program:
PTFE Hose Range (Paste Extrusion)
PTFE is the principal and the oldest fluoroplastic marketed by the US chemical group DuPont under the name Teflon®. Its advantages lie in its wide temperature range and in its combination of many material properties.
Modified PTFE Hoses
To optimize the properties of conventional PTFE tubing, the material is modified. In "second-generation PTFE", perfluoro(propyl vinyl ether) (PPVE) is incorporated into the linear chain of the PTFE, as a result of which the hose can have higher impermeability.
Thermo fluoroplastics (screw extrusion)
Thermoplastically processable fluoroplastics are semi-crystalline thermoplastics made from perfluorinated monomers. In comparison to PTFE, they are available as granules and enable, among other things, the production of endless strand lengths.
PTFE heatshrink tubing is available in the ratios 2:1 and 4:1. It can be widened by heating and applying compressed air. After cooling, it retains the modified form, while reverting to the original form upon renewed heating.
Special hoses and individual hoses
Customers often have special requirements for fluoroplastic hoses. We offer individual solutions, be it coloured longitudinal stripes, laser-assisted engraving or printing.
