Nickel-clad Tubing

VICI electrochemically plates PEEK and fused silica tubing with pure nickel, strengthening the tubing and allowing direct connections using metal ferrules, while maintaining the chemical benefits of the wetted surfaces inside.

Additional Specifications We take polyimide-coated fused silica (FS) and remove the polyimide layer. Then we electro-chemically plate the FS with pure nickel. 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 .002" to .010".

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

Additional Specifications Since we can manufacture virtually any size PEEK tubing from 360 micron OD/.002" ID on up, the possibilities are endless. In any size, the mechanical properties of nickel combined with the chemical properties of PEEK produce enhanced performance with robust metal ferrule connections.

We currently offer 1/32" OD tubing with ID from .002" to .010", and 1/16" OD tubing from .0025" to .030".
