The use of PTFE in the manufacturing process of hose systems: In our white paper we clarify

In demand in various industries: Find out in our white paper why PTFE hose systems are the best technical solution for many applications and read what makes PTFE so unique.

The material PTFE, better known as "Teflon", comes along  with excellent properties. As specialists in hose assemblies, we use PTFE to manufacture high-quality and durable hoses used in the pharmaceutical, food and chemical industries. 

Our PTFE hose assemblies: Highest quality standards

Markert manufactures PTFE hoses exclusively from high-quality PTFE: the properties of PTFE can be adapted or optimized by various additives and processes. In our white paper, we explain why Markert PTFE hoses have a higher elongation at break, how PTFE becomes conductive, and how an absolutely clean and smooth surface can be ensured.

In addition, Markert is able to adapt the PTFE tubing to the needs of the pharmaceutical industry: Coextruded PTFE liners have a white appearance and a very smooth and transparent inner layer. This makes them particularly suitable for pharmaceutical applications. 

In general, PTFE is an all-round talent that serves many purposes. Read about the advantages PTFE has over other materials in our white paper.

"PTFE, or Teflon, is a genuine all-purpose material. It is known primarily for its non-stick effect and high temperature resistance. But PTFE has much more to offer"
