FEP Flourinated (Ethylene Propylene) was developed as a melt processable version of PTFE. This gives it the ability to be extruded and thermoformed whilst still retaining the chemical resistance and non-stick properties of PTFE.
FEP release provides the ultimate in non-stick industrial protection. It is convenient, long lasting and is simple to use, offering a unique blend of properties that are not found in any other type of film. This low friction thermoplastic is suitable for a wide range of high performance jobs. It is transparent and can be heat bonded, welded and heat sealed.
Its excellent non-stick properties make it an ideal release film for a large number of applications. It provides a cost effective route to improved production quality and increased productivity.
Techplas UK offer a range of extruded seamless FEP tubes which shrink tightly and encapsulate the surface of rollers by the simple application of heat.
|Benefits and Properties|
This product is normally supplied as seamless heat shrinkable sleeves in FEP - 12 to 380mm diameter with wall thickness of 0.51mm nominal. Thicker sleeves with 1 or 1.5mm wall thickness are also available.
Surface treatment for bonding applications (sizes from 0.025mm to 0.1mm treated by corona discharge, larger sizes chemically etched).
Pigmented films available for specialist applications (e.g. release film) red, white, black, chromed.
Perforated films available for release film applications.
Standard widths are 1150mm or 1250mm depending on thickness, larger sheets can be supplied by use of Holscot's welding techniques which provide a virtually indiscernible joint.
Other thicknesses available upon request.
