Dursan® versus PEEK

An inert flow path is mandatory in modern HPLC analysis in order to manage the complex and reactive samples commonly used in today’s fast-paced analytical world. Modern LC systems feature an array of materials including costly alloys and polymers like PEEK to achieve inertness, but these materials come with their own set of limitations. 

Inert CVD Coating Comparison: Does the Supplier Matter?

Are all “inert” silicon-based CVD coatings the same? According to the data, the answer is an emphatic no. If our 30+ year reputation isn’t enough, the objective studies in this literature prove that when quality and performance really matter, SilcoTek® is the only trusted source for the most inert coatings available.
