Permeability of light though Fluoropolymer Resin

  1. Jan 9, 2013 #1
    I have a application question. I am going to be trying to pump UV curing material though a Fluoropolymer tubing. I was wondering if there was anyway I can tell by looking at the spec sheet if the UV material will cure inside the tubing. Basically I am looking to find the permeability of light through the tubing. Or some other properity that might tell me where I stand as far as how much UV light can penetrate the tubing.

    The spec on the tubing is as following. The tubing is colored red
    Dielectric Constant: 2.1 D150/103Hz
    Dielectric Strength: 500 D149/125MIL
    Refractive Index: 1.35

    I am not sure about the properties of the UV curing material as it may vary from time to time. All that I will know is that it will cure under light in the ultraviolet spectrum.
