Teflon hose is a wonderful product that is well suited for a number of applications in large part due to its harsh-chemical resistance. Like many useful inventions, this particular material was found completely by accident in 1938 by a man named Roy Plunkett. Plunkett, who was working for Kinetic Chemicals at the time, was trying to make a new refrigerant agent (now known by the name chlorofluoroccarbon). Instead, by chance and thanks to his curiosity, he discovered the polymerized preflouroethylene, which was later trademarked as Teflon. Today, a Teflon flexible hose offers the astounding properties of this material inside a number of resilient structures, some of which are perfectly suited to resisting external abrasions. Teflon duct sizes are available in a wide range of I.D. (inside diameters) and a number of standard lengths, which will help to make this particular hosing a perfect fit. Although pricier than other flexible hoses, a Teflon hose one offers the very best in chemical resistance which makes Teflon hose products ideal for high purity applications.
Here’s a breakdown of what a hose lined with Teflon can offer you:
Unmatched Chemical Resistance
Great for chemical plants, pharmaceutical applications, and pollution control (just to name a few!), this material can stand up to many of the harsh chemical fumes found in a majority of today's industries. These are a few of the chemical fumes that a Teflon flexible hose can stand up against:
- Hydrochloric acid
- Sulfuric Acid
- And many, many more…
