Standard Specification for PTFE Tubing, Miniature Beading and Spiral Cut Tubing
|Publication Date:||10 November 2001|
|ICS Code (Plastics pipes):||23.040.20|
1.1 This specification covers PTFE tubing, miniature beading and spiral cut tubing-manufactured from PTFE resin produced from dispersion specified in Specification D 4895.
Note 1-PTFE tube and rod manufactured from resin specified in Specification D 4894 are covered in Specification D 1710.
1.2 The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as the standard. The inch-pound units given in parentheses are for information only.
1.3 The following hazard caveat pertains only to the test method portion, Section 8, of this specification: This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.
1.4 As PTFE resin produced from dispersion is not a true thermoplastic material, any reuse for the specification referenced above is impossible. However, markets do exist for non-virgin PTFE as additives and fillers.
Note 2-There is currently no published ISO standard relating to this specification.
