PTFE (Polytetrafluoroethylene, also known by the brand name Teflon®) is highly compatible with all automotive fluids and has a very wide operating temperature range. Although less flexible than rubber hose, it is more robust and will not allow fluids to permeate through the inner bore.
RaceFlux's PTFE hose is constructed from smooth bore extruded PTFE with a stainless steel wire outer braid. For use with RaceFlux T-Series PTFE AN hose end fittings and other brand traditional PTFE AN hose end fittings. Sold by the foot.
