TCI 1Duct™ is an all-PTFE flexible duct with a wear-resistant metal coil, suitable for all applications. 1Duct™ eliminates the need to use less-capable flexible ducting products made with PTFE-coated fiberglass and silicone-coated fiberglass, which have limited flexing capability and can be corroded. 1Duct™ is made using TCI's all-PTFE CrossFilm™ material which has an excellent flexing life and corrosion resistance. 1Duct™ CrossFilm™ material remains non-porous to ensure containment, unlike fiberglass-reinforced materials which become porous after flexing. 1Duct™ can also include an electrically-conductive surface material to prevent the build-up of static charge.
1Duct™ can be made with a galvanized or stainless metal coil that protects against abrasion and a bridge clamp is used to achieve a tight attachment to a pipe. Because the design consists only of PTFE and metal, 1Duct™ is the ideal flexible ducting product for applications with fire rating test concerns like ASTM E84, UBC 8-1, and UL 723. 1Duct™ is extremely flexible with a 6 to 1 compression ratio and a small bend radius. It is unaffected by UV exposure and will not grow fungus.
