PTFE Tapes

TechPlas PTFE tapes are a glass fabric with a PTFE (Polytetrafluoroethylene) coating with either an adhesive backing (PSA Pressure Adhesive) on one side or PTFE on both sides. This gives excellent performances in extreme temperatures. They provide an easy release, non stick surface, meeting the requirements of many industries in terms of frequent compression and long life at high temperatures.

They are also chemically resistant to the majority of chemicals, have excellent mechanical and electrical properties. They are available in different thicknesses, widths and PTFE coating types.

Benefits and Properties Applications
  • Excellent Fabric Performance in extreme temperatures from -73°C/-99°F to +260°C/500°F
  • Chemically Resistant
  • Excellent mechanical and electrical properties
  • Excellent Resistanceto solvents
  • Adhesion to Metaland has excellent properties to protect it from weathering or ageing
  • Anti-Static or multi layer versions are available
  • Adhesives perform in continuous operating temperatures from -40°C/-40°F to +188°C/370°F
  • Packaging- heat sealant tapes can be use to cover hot wires and sealing equipment
  • Electrical Insulation - Can provide insulation on high temperature transformers, motors and coils
  • Can be used to cover Dryer Cylinders
  • PVC Welding - Cover metallic and RF welding platens
  • Can be used for the lining on solvent recovery units and as a Protective Barrier on paper/film extrusion coating lines
  • Used in Food Processing to line chutes and guide rails

Ranges Available

Premium Range Engineered for maximum performance
Standard Range Strong general purpose, industrial range
Engineering Range A lightweight range with good release for less arduous applications
Etched Range Fabric etched on one side
Anti-Static Range Antistatic conductive fabrics
Porous Range Porous Fabrics are controlled porosity fabrics widely used in bleed out materials in release applications
Zoned Tapes A PTFE coated glass fabric in combination with a special double sided tape to provide an adhesive edged tape with a clear zone of PTFE fabric in the centre. Used as the ideal release medium in sealing two layers of plastic film in the automatic production of plastic bags. Available in 0.003" and 0.005"

Additional Information

Techplas PTFE Coated Tape is available as non-adhesive or with an adhesive backing.

It is supplied in rolls of 15 or 30 metres; it is used as a protective heat resistant barrier and for its non-stick qualities (Any width of tape from 10mm to 2.5 metres wide is readily available.)
