Teflon™ AF is extremely gas permeable—more than 200x more oxygen permeable than PTFE and similar polymers—which makes it particularly effective for degassing applications. VICI offers .032”x .008” tubing with a 3000 psi rating (maximum 5-foot lengths). A variety of tubing can be produced, and tubing can be easily formed into coils.
Teflon AF is also extremely clear (low index of refraction). At small diameters (e.g., 0.032” OD) Teflon AF tubing can be flexible, at larger diameters it can be more rigid. These characteristics make Teflon™ well suited for applications such as:
- Long pathlength optical systems
- Long HPLC detectors
- Ultrahigh sensitivity (improved S/N) optical detection and measurement
