PTFE Cross Laminated Films
Filcoflex B.V.’s PTFE Cross Laminated Films are 100% PTFE material that is guaranteed corrosion and contamination free, resists tearing, and has superior flexing capabilities compared to other PTFE products. PTFE Cross Laminated Films can be heat-sealed and is unaffected by UV exposure or moisture.
Because this is an all-PTFE product with excellent mechanical capability and multi-directional strength, PTFE Cross Laminated Films do not require and compromising reinforcement. Regardless of chemical exposure, PTFE Cross Laminated Films remain corrosion free and non-flammable. PTFE Cross Laminated Films is proven in laboratory and industrial settings its ability to retain all its physical properties regardless of chemical environment.
Filcoflex B.V.’s PTFE Cross Laminated are created using a crossed multi directional pattern typically created from 0.07mm or 0,10mm film plies to produce a material with exceptional 360° tear strength and durability. Because PTFE Cross Laminated Films consist solely of PTFE resins, the product is considered chemically inert and can be used in high temperature applications, depending upon the thickness of the Film used.
PTFE Cross Laminated Films has an unlimited shelf life and is compatible with all chemicals. Available in various standard colors, black electric conductive versions, and various thicknesses.

Pressure Resistance for Flexible Connectors
0,34 Bar / 5.0 PSI For temperatures up to 90 °C / 195°F. Please see “Operating Pressure Guide” for further information. We recommend using the shortest possible connector for applications where increased pressure and/or high temperature is expected. Please contact us for more information.
ATEX & Explosion Safety
Explosion Pressure: no tests have been performed, this can be done upon request.
Electrostatic Surface Resistance:
- PTFE2112 AS Black FDA: < 106 Ohm – Conductive
- PTFE2120 AS Black FDA: < 106 Ohm – Conductive
- PTFE2120 Translucent FDA: > 1,8 x 109 Ohm – Insulating
- Sleeve Length: < 100mm
Airspeed not important
= Powders MIE* > 1mJ
- Sleeve Length: 100 – 1000mm
Airspeed > 2m/s
= Powders MIE* >1000mJ
Airspeed < 2m/s = Powders MIE* >10mJ
- Sleeve Length: < 100mm
*MIE means Minimum Ignition Energy
Despite being insulating the material has been tested, to which relation it can be used in powder and dust transportation system. The relation between airspeed, maximum sleeve length and Minimum Ignition Energy of the powder or dust has been well documented in a report so that PTFE2120 can be implemented in explosion hazardous environments if designed within described parameters.
Name of the reports:
- ‘9075, Report Suitability flexibles 2015 Filcoflex 02.pdf’
Both reports are available upon request.
- CIP resistant (see CIP chemicals guide)
- Cleaning Chemicals (see cleaning guide)
- For a detailed chemical resistance please see our chemical compatibility chart
PTFE films of other thicknesses or colors have not been tested thus far.
