I have scored a roll of FEP tubing (similar to PTFE) and I finally used it in anger today.

I heat formed it into a hook so I could hang it over the edge of the mashtun for filling and recirculating, then transfering to the kettle.

sos,

So heating it allows you to shape it.
I'm assuming it is like regular tubing at normal temperatures (eg flexible) ?

Doc - it is flexible but will kink if you try to bend it too tight. Eg wrapping it around corny keg might be at risk of kinking. Also once it has kinked, it stays kinky :ph34r:
