Plastic PTFE connector, PTFE elbows, PTFE tee connector
Used in equipment and pipeline connections in the chemical and food
industries, it has excellent performance of no creep, no sticking,
no fading, no aging, and chemical corrosion resistance, which
greatly saves costs and improves the service life of products. The
preferred connection sealing material.
Extreme temperatures are no problem for these fittings—they’re made
of PTFE, so they can withstand a wider temperature range than any
of our other plastic pipe fittings for chemicals. They have the
chemical resistance to stand up to acid and solvents. Fittings have
thick, Schedule 80 walls for heavy duty industrial applications.
The material won’t leach contaminates into the line, so these
fittings are commonly used in high-purity processes, such as
semiconductor and clean room applications. They have a super-smooth
interior for unrestricted flow. Apply a non-hardening,
plastic-compatible sealant to the male threads to prevent leaks.
Tape or sealants with PTFE are not recommended for
plastic-to-plastic threaded connections. When making a threaded
connection be careful not to overtighten the threads. To prevent
cracks and leaks, finger tighten the fitting, then wrench-tighten
one to two turns.
