This material has excellent resistance to buffers and mobile phases with higher ionic strength. FEP tubing is recommended for low pressure and ion chromatography applications.
Fluorinated ethylene propylene (FEP) is a member of the fluorocarbon family with similar chemical properties. It is generally more rigid than PTFE, with somewhat increased tensile strength. It is typically more transparent than PTFE, slightly less porous, and less permeable to oxygen. FEP is not as subject to compressive creep at room temperature as PTFE, and because of its slightly higher coefficient of friction is easier to retain in a compression fitting.
