16g PTFE COIL - 5 meter Coil - Almost 16 Feet: PTFE is a soft, flexible, comfortable-to-wear material that can be used to replace metal barbells in navel jewelry, eyebrow rings, and other types of jewelry. It's autoclavable and hypo-allergenic, which makes it perfect for those with metal sensitivities. Now you can buy PTFE in coils with our 14g, 16g and 10g coil options!
This coil of 16g PTFE is perfect for shop owners and piercers, because it's more economical than buying 2"-long PTFE shafts and throwing away the excess. This coil allows you to cut the perfect length for any client's 16g jewelry. The coil is 5 meters long (almost 16 feet), and it's clear/translucent.
PTFE is technically self-threading, which means you should be able to screw on an externally-threaded ball and go. It really depends on the jewelry you're working with, though, so to be safe, you might consider buying one of our PTFE threading tools (order tool here).
