Defined PressFit connectors are used to connect two fused silica capillary columns together. They are made from borosilicate glass and deactivated. The connection between the defined PressFit connector and the column is made using the cleaned and square cut end of the column binding to the connector using the adhesive properties of the malleable polyimide coating.


  • Defined fit: ID-specific ends for better sealability.
  • Color-coded for easy identification.
