1/4" OD Teflon Solid Sorbent Tube for Solvent Extraction

Safe-LabTM Solid PTFE sorbent tubes are made of high purity virgin polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE) to ensure excellent performance. Suitable for use with most organic solvents, these teflon tubes have threaded PTFE extracting nuts. They are available in standard, shortened and short lengths. PTFE sorbents are odorless, tasteless and non-toxic. These teflon sorbent tubes can be used for solvent extraction from aqueous solutions. PTFE sorbents are ideal for environmental, pharmaceutical, food and beverage applications.

Teflon NXT granular fluoroplastics have improved chemical resistance, smoother less porous surface finish, enhanced bond strength and weldability along with improved dielectric breakdown strength. They are designed for seals, valve seats, gaskets, tank linings and fluid handling components that require a high performance fluoroplastic material.

The Teflon brand is a registered trademark of Chemours (formerly DuPont) and represents the entire line of high-performance materials. The most common association with the name Teflon is with the non-stick coating on cookware and similar household items. However, Teflon is a much more versatile material with many consumer and industrial applications.

The Teflon brand is also well known for the lubrication properties of its coating. This coating is actually a form of polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE), a synthetic polymer that was discovered by accident in 1938 by Roy Plunkett, a DuPont chemist working on a chlorofluorocarbon compound at the time. PTFE is formed by combining carbon and fluorine atoms, with very strong bonds between the two. It was named Teflon after its discoverer, and the first Teflon products hit the market in 1945. Until recently, the PTFE used in Teflon was manufactured using perfluorooctanoic acid (PFOA) which has been identified as a possible human carcinogen.
