FEP Tubing

The origins of FEP (Fluorinated Ethylene Propylene) date back to 1956. The aim was to bring together the existing properties of PTFE with thermoplastic processing, which resulted in FEP. In FEP tubing manufacture, a particular advantage is being able to form the material into theoretically endless strand lengths. In addition, FEP has high dielectric strength and is therefore suitable as an insulating material.

FEP Tube Manufacturing

FEP is one of the thermo fluoroplastics and is available as granules in contrast to PTFE. This allows the material to be formed by means of so-called screw extruders and produced in almost any length of section - using continuous granulate feed. In FEP tube production, the thermoplastic granulate is melted and ejected through a nozzle. This allows the production of tubing in great lengths. Furthermore, the material has greater optical transparency than conventional PTFE. As an option, FEP tube can be coloured UV absorbing black.

Production program of an FEP tube manufacturer

As a leading manufacturer of tubing made of PTFE, FEP, PFA and other thermoplastics, we manufacture FEP tubing in all dimensions just as our PTFE hoses. In the following tables, you will find the various sizes in which we produce heatshrink tubing from FEP. If you are looking for special sizes or particular tolerances, we would be glad to receive your request. We would also be happy to advise you on further specific questions concerning FEP tubing.
