Why is it not recommended to use FEP tubing above 80°C when the melting point is much higher?

Reference Number: AA-02719 Created: 10/26/2015 12:09 PM Last Updated: 10/26/2015 12:18 PM

FEP has a melting point of 260°C and a general recommended maximum operating temperature during usage of around 200°C. If pressure is applied in the tubing, however, the maximum temperature should be lowered accordingly. The maximum temperature during usage should be 80°C under these conditions. If no pressure is applied, the tubing can be used up to 200°C.
