FEP Tubing

Key properties / advantages of FEP tubing:
• More transparent / optically clear than PTFE and therefore used in monitoring equipment.
• More flexible than PTFE.
• FEP is virtually unaffected by oxygen, ozone and UV light.
• The working temperature of FEP is extremely broad, ranging from 200oC (392oF) to -200oC (-328oF).

Optinova FEP heat shrink tubing has the outstanding properties of FEP; high temperature resistance, excellent electrical insulation and chemicals resistance combined with a low shrink temperature (approx. 110°C). This enables many materials to be covered in FEP for mechanical, electrical and chemical protection. In addition the non-stick properties are maintained. Applications for FEP heat-shrink are various and include cable jackets,non-stick rollers, sensor probe covers, hose protection, electrical terminal insulation.
A major advantage of FEP heat shrink tubing is that it can be heat-sealed or welded to itself.
This means parts can be covered with the material and then heat-sealed so the part becomes completely encapsulated.
This technique is for example used as corrosion protection to sensor probes in process industries.
FEP has lower shrink temperature, greater flexibility and more optical clarity compared to PTFE. This date sheet is for shrink ratio of 1.3:1.
Please note shrink ratio of 1.6:1 is also available. Dimensions below are examples only.
We can also produce according to customer needs.
