FEP RoHS Compliant Tubing Eliminates Mercury Emissions

March 3, 2010
The FEP Tubing is an RoHS Compliant component used in applications that require long continuous lengths but must withstand high temperatures and/or corrosive chemicals. In semiconductor or fluid handling applications, FEP smoothbore, convoluted or corrugated tubing is used to transport media. Also, because FEP tubing is extremely clear in its natural state, it allows operators to visually inspect the product in the tube. In medical applications, color or radiopaque compounds are added and it is produced as a Heat Shrink for Catheter applications. In addition, RoHS Compliant FEP offers a non-stick surface and is non-leaching. Sizes range from .010 to 4 inches in O.D.
