PTFE and FEP Tygon® tubing

Tetraflon de Mexico


There are different types of hoses and different compounds from which they are manufactured. The material they are made of has to do with their chemical, thermal and mechanical resistance. The selection of the right material is very important depending on what chemicals will be used in the hoses. Tetraflon® offers a wide variety of hoses made of compounds with very high chemical and thermal resistance.

Types of Hoses


Tygon is a brand name for a family of flexible tubing consisting of a variety of base materials. Tygon is a registered trademark of Saint-Gobain Corporation. It is a word invented, owned and used by Saint-Gobain and originated in the late 1930s. Tygon products are produced in three countries, but sold worldwide. Tygon tubing is used in many markets, including food and beverage, chemical processing, industrial, laboratory, medical, pharmaceutical, and semiconductor processing. There are many formulations of clear, flexible Tygon tubing. Chemical resistance and physical properties vary among the different formulations, but the tubing is generally considered "so resistant to chemical attack that it will handle virtually any chemical" whether liquid, gas, or in suspension.

Types of Hoses

Corrugated Hose

PTFE, FEP and PFA corrugated hoses are hoses that are formed with rings to prevent collapse when forming bends with these hoses.
Types of Hoses

Smooth Hose

Smooth PTFE, FEP and PFA hoses are hoses that allow high flow and chemical resistance of the material of manufacture.
Types of Hoses

Convoluted Hose

Convoluted hoses are PTFE, FEP or PFA hoses that are spiral formed to reduce collapse when forming bends with these hoses. The main advantage of this hose is that it allows a continuous flow along the length of the hose, preventing stagnant flow areas and improving the cleanliness of the hose.

Types of Hoses

Braided Hose

These three types of hoses can be covered by a braid to improve their mechanical and handling damage resistance. Covers can be of various types and are recommended for the environment in which the hose will be working:

Nickel-plated steel
Stainless Steel
