Polymeric Tubing - FEP, PTFE, ETFE, etc.

FEP Tubing

VICI - Polymeric TubingFEP (FluorinatedEthylenePropylene) is chemically inert to most HPLC solvents and is recommended for low pressure applications. Typically 1/16” OD holds up to 117 bar (1700 psi) and 1/8” holds up to 70 bar (1000 psi). We recommend FEP for ion chromatography applications. Max. operating temperature for FEP is 80°C.

PTFE Tubing

PTFE tubing (PolyTetraFluoroEthylene) is chemically inert and suitable for lower pressure applications. Typically 1/16” OD tubing holds up to 62 bar (900 psi) and 1/8” up to 35 bar (500 psi). Maximum continuous operating temperature is 100°C.

ETFE Tubing

ETFE tubing has some outstanding properties which makes it particularly suitable for HPLC since it has a higher burst pressure when compared to PTFE. The most common dimension is 1/16” x 0.25 mm which will withstand up to 186 bar (2700 psi) using water as mobile phase. It is important, however, to note that when using ETFE with organic solvents it may swell. It is the ideal polymer for applications with chloride salts, which typically corrode stainless steel.

Impermeable Tubing

FEP Tubing coated with PVDF. Co-extruded Impermeable Tubing will combine the two features of FEP and PVDF in the most positive manner, ensuring that degassed solvent will stay degassed until it reaches the HPLC pump.
