Fluoroplastic Retractable Coils made from FEP, PTFE and PFA tubing
The beauty of fluoroplastics is that they can be manipulated into any shape or size – which is extremely useful if you need to produce something very specific piece for a particular use. We often form fluoropolymer materials into sheets and tubing for bespoke projects. Yet there is another form which is also much requested by our customers: Retractable coils.
There are many different materials from which coils can be constructed, but coils constructed from fluoropolymer tubing (also known as retractable cables) offer unparalleled flexibility and durability. Retractable coils made using FEP, PTFE and PFA plastics are extremely adaptable, being chemically inert, acid and UV resistant, and with a smooth surface that germs just cannot stick to. They also boast vast working temperatures of -200°C to +200°C, while PTFE/PFA actually has an even greater range of -200°C to +260°C.
Large and small retractable fluoroplastic retractable coils are extremely useful in many different industries. In the medical sector, they are often used for in vivo testing for the treatment of aneurysms and for the occlusion of blood vessels, while in the food industry, they are very effective for water-dispensing and UVC sterilisation applications. Retractable coils can also be used inside telescopic masts, and for all manner of electrical applications.
At Adtech, we have the capacity to create custom-made retractable coils in-house, using precise tooling techniques and efficient thermoforming technology to create the exact material to suit your specific needs. Our cost-effective retractable coils can be formed into any custom shape or size, large or small.
If needed, we can also provide specialist fitting of the coils (particularly useful, for example, if you are looking to create a coil component which needs to be inserted into a larger, specialist piece of equipment).
Depending on your needs, all thermoformed retractable coils and retractable cables can be volume-checked for critical applications, and they can also be supplied with flanged or flared ends and with fittings if required.
Whether you are looking for fluoropolymer tubing, plastic sheeting or retractable coils, Adtech’s team is highly experienced in knowing how to produce specialist instruments of every possible kind. Just let us know your requirements and we will help to advise you on exactly the best way to achieve what you are looking for.
