ChemTite® Ethylene™ Fluoropolymer Lined Metal Pipe and Fittings

The ChemTite® Ethylene™ brand was the first to employ PTFE isostatic molding processes and the first to process pure unmodified PTFE for its lined products. Today ChemTite® Ethylene™ processes fluoropolymers in more ways than any other competing brand. Processes include dry & wet isostatic molding, paste extrusion, ram extrusion, rotolining, injection molding, intrusion molding, melt extrusion, resin transfer molding, compression molding and vacuum forming.

Product Features & Benefits

  • PURE PTFE – NO VOC’S ADDED: Ethylene utilizes only 100% pure virgin, high molecular weight PTFE resin in its manufacturing processes. NO pigments or solvent lubricants whatsoever are added to our PTFE liners.
  • HEAVY-WALLED FLUOROPOLYMERS: Pipe sections are lined with a heavy-walled isostatically molded PTFEliners exceeding the requirements of ASTM F1545. Liner thickness ranges from .130” for 1” pipe to .425” for 12” diameter piping.
  • THE CHEMTITE® DIFFERENCE: The ChemTite® Ethylene brand focuses on the complete lined pipe assembly: PTFE liner and the steel housing. Without question, steel piping is a critical component of the piping assembly, it is the pressure retaining vessel. The PTFE liners’ only purpose is to protect the steel piping from being attacked by the fluid media.
  • “SEAMLESS” STEEL HOUSING: The ChemTite® Ethylene’s Lined Steel Pipe seamless tube is extruded and drawn from a billet while welded tubes are produced from a strip that is roll formed and welded to produce a tube. A welded tube is considerably less expensive than seamless, but it is severely compromised. ChemTite® line steel piping employs “seamless” Schedule 40 steel or stainless pipe in sizes 1” to 8”, Schedule 30 in 10”, and Schedule 20 in 12” conforming to ASTM A53 grade B or ASTM A312.
  • FORGED STEEL FLANGES: Forged steel flanges offer better impact resistance and are less brittle than ductile iron flanges. All ChemTite® rotating flanges on pipe and fittings come standard as forged steel ASTM A105 which offer higher pressure ratings, better ultimate tensile and elongation compared to ductile iron.
  • VARIOUS LINED PIPE FITTINGS: Dimensions and specs can be found on the ChemTite® Lined Piping Brochure.
