ENCAPSULATED PTFE FITTINGS FOR SELF-ASSEMBLY
Encap fittings provide a fully PTFE lined fitting with a flared face which is easier to assemble
In response to requests from Customers who self-assemble Aflex Hose products, Aflex have developed a basic range of PTFE encapsulated end fittings. These can be used in place of standard non-lined end fittings to provide a PTFE lined alternative, without the need to assemble and flare an Integral PTFE Lined end fitting.
Encap fittings do not provide the same advantages as Integral Lined fittings, namely the full hose bore size through the fitting, and no internal entrapment areas. See more.
However, the Aflex Encap fitting design does have a larger bore through the fitting than PFA and PTFE encapsulated fittings from other suppliers.
