This Zeus clear, flexible, high-purity tubing is suitable for fluid handling applications requiring an extremely low level of chemical extractables. It is made of PTFE PFA (polytetrafluoroethylene perfluoroalkoxy) for resistance to chemicals and corrosion, and it maintains a mechanical strength at high temperatures. It is gamma, ETO (ethylene oxide), e-beam, and autoclave sterilizable for repeated use and has a maximum operating temperature of 500 degrees F. This high-purity tubing is suitable for the semiconductor, chemical, pharmaceutical, and medical industries.
Plastic tubing is used to transfer liquids, air, or solids, and it is characterized by a round, rectangular, or square shape and a hollow center. Plastic tubing is crimp-resistant and varies in bend radius (flexibility), chemical resistance, wall thickness, durometer hardness, and temperature and pressure handling abilities. The clarity of plastic tubing may be transparent (clear), translucent (semi-clear), or opaque (solid), and the tubing's coloring may indicate suitable applications. Barbed fittings are used to connect tubing or redirect flow in a fluid handling system. Plastic tubing is used in a wide variety of industries, such as agriculture, automotive, laboratory, and medicine. Applications for plastic tubing include blood and fluid handling, peristaltic pumps, electrical and thermal insulation, analytical systems, and food and beverage handling, among others.
