Product Description

Title Line

A pure PTFE connector capable of running at both low and high temperatures, and can be used across the full pH scale.  Teflex NP Black also offers excellent surface resistivity - 106.

Application
  • Can be used on products across the full pH scale  i.e. caustic and acid products will not effect PTFE

  • Capable of running at very low (-73ºC/-99ºF) and very high temperatures (continuously operating at 300ºC / 572ºF with short-term surges at 316ºC / 600ºF)
