Fluor-A-Pure™ FEP Tubing

Chemically Resistant | Flexible | Transparent

Fluor-A-Pure™ (IND) is an option where the chemical and thermal resistance of PTFE tubing is required at a low cost. Fluor-A-Pure (IND)™ is made of 100% virgin grade FEP (fluorinated ethylene propylene). It is resistant to a broad range of industrial solvents, bases and strong acids.

Fluor-A-Pure (IND)™ FEP Tubing has excellent optical clarity which makes it ideal for sight gauge and flow applications.
