At Enflo Canada, we design and manufacture polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE) products such as rods, cylinders, sheets and tubing. These are available in skived, molded and extruded PTFE, and we also manufacture products in virgin reprocessed PTFE and filled PTFE (Enflon®). By processing virgin PTFE in-house, retain complete control over our products’ quality. We are proud to offer same-day shipment on stock items, fast turnaround time for custom orders, and discounts for large orders. The knowledgeable and experienced teams in our two plants––one in Grand Falls, NB and the other in Bristol, CT––serve customers across North America with a smile. An industry leader since 1956, we ensure that you get top-quality, cost-effective products wherever you happen to be.
Teflon Tubing Product Line
We manufacture extruded PTFE rods in dozens of dimensions. Extruded tubing is available in 6’ and 12’ lengths. PTFE features a low coefficient of friction, excellent insulating properties, and resists heat and most chemical substances. PTFE products suit temperatures up to 500ºF.
Extruded PTFE Tubing Tolerances
Up to 1”
Teflon Tubing Industrial Applications
Our clients work in diverse business sectors, including the aerospace, oil and gas, scientific research, medical, and food and beverage industries.
Teflon Tubing Manufacturing Process
Enflon®, our filled PTFE material, combines PTFE with varying amounts of other substances, such as glass fiber, graphite, bronze and carbon. This alters the material’s characteristics. For example, adding graphite improves PTFE’s corrosion resistance and initial wear, and the addition of molybdenum disulfide improves the material’s surface hardness and stiffness, and reduces the starting coefficient of friction.
For PTFE products that stick to other surfaces, we put the product through a chemical process called etching. This can be done on one or both sides of a product, and after an epoxy is applied to the etched side, the PTFE product will adhere to another surface. Alternatively, we can apply pressure-sensitive tape––etched material on an adhesive backing paper––to a PTFE product.
