FEP tubing (Fluoroethylenepropylen) is made with a fluorinated ethylene-propylene material. FEP tubing is a copolymer of TFE and can be transparent or in multiple colors for easy identification. It was developed as an alternative to PTFE tubing, which has limitations.
FEP tubing is a great inexpensive alternative for applications that need chemical resistance and large temperature exposure including biopharmaceutical, and laboratory applications, and it’s also ideal for low-pressure applications.
FEP tubing is essentially the melt-processable version of PTFE tubing. While FEP has similar properties to PTFE, it has a lower maximum operating temperature of +200°C. The main benefit of using FEP tubing is that it can be more easily cut and formed.
FEP tubing can be easily cut, formed, and re-molded. Its flexibility and compatibility with push-to-connect fittings also make it easy to install.
