Highest Heat Resistance

Highest Heat Resistance

Kept in contact with 300°C flame for one minute, Furukawa Polyimide Tubing on the left shows no change, while Fluorine resin tubing on the right begins to soften.

Seamless

Seamless

Spiral tubing loosens in contact with 300°C flame, the same can never occur in Furukawa Polyimide Tubing (seamless and unitary forming).

Thinner Wall Thickness

Comparison of space factor (left: polyimide tubing, right: Fluorine resin tubing - each shows 15 pieces of 1.0mm inside diameter )

Polyimide tubing has the superior space factor compared to Fluorine resin for 3 times.

Good Chemical & Radiation Resistance

Good Chemical & Radiation Resistance

Fluorine resin is unlikely to be glued, polyimide is compatible with most types of glue.

Good Flexibility

Good Flexibility

The cross section of a Furukawa Polyimide Tubing, shows a multi-layered structure -- the key to bending endurance.

Easy Installation

Easy Installation

Upper Fluorine resin tubing is less rigid, even harder to pass a conductor through.
