Biocompatibility – PTFE Sub-Lite-Wall® heat shrink is fully biocompatible and USP Class VI approved making it ideal for use associated with medical and clinical devices.
Broad Working Temperature Range – Zeus PTFE Sub-Lite-Wall® has a working temperature range of 500 °F (260 °C) to -328 °F (-200 °C).
Chemical Resistance – PTFE is resistant to all common solvents including acids, bases, and hydrocarbons.
Easy to Clean – Because of highly lubricious nature, PTFE’s surface is inherently non-stick making the Sub-Lite-Wall® heat shrink easy to wipe clean.
Excellent Dielectric Strength – PTFE Sub-Lite-Wall® heat shrink’s exceptional dielectric strength prevent electrical interference coming from or getting into your covered components.
Flame Resistant – In addition to its temperature tolerance, PTFE Sub-Lite-Wall® heat shrink is very disinclined to burn with a UL 94 rating of V-0.
Limiting Oxygen Index (LOI) – Supporting PTFE Sub-Lite-Wall’s® flame resistance, this material is extremely difficult to burn with an LOI of >95.
Low Coefficient of Friction – PTFE has the lowest coefficient of friction of any polymer.
Low Extractables – PTFE has an extremely low level of chemical extractables minimizing the chance of substances leaching into your materials from the heat shrink.
Mechanical Resistance – After recovery, PTFE Sub-Lite-Wall® imparts superior strength and mechanic toughness to your covered components.
Sterilizable – PTFE Sub-Lite-Wall’s® can hold up to EtO and autoclave sterilizations.
