Nickel-Clad Fused Silica

Nickel-clad fused silica
  • Inert, flexible transfer lines
  • Improved heat transfer
  • Thick wall version allows direct connection using metal ferrules
  • Rated for up to 40,000 psi (dependant on size and plating thickness)

We take polyimide-coated 360 µm fused silica (FS) and remove the polyimide layer. Then we electro-chemically plate the FS with pure nickel to a diameter of 800 µm (1/32"). The resulting nickel-plated FS tube provides superior heat transfer to the FS lining, permitting use as a flexible transfer line with the best qualities of silica-lined stainless but with improved heat transfer and a shorter bend radius.

The 1/32" OD tubing is available in IDs from 10µm to 250 µm (.0004" to .010").

For high pressure applications, we recommend using our 1/32" 316 stainless ferrules.
