Understanding Teflon Tape: Its Uses, Characteristics, and Superior Performance

What is Teflon tape?

Teflon tape, also known as PTFE tape. Teflon tape uses glass fiber as the base cloth. After drying, it is coated with PTFE emulsion to make PTFE fiberglass cloth, and then coated with silicone to make Teflon tape.

Teflon tape has a smooth surface, good resistance to viscosity, chemical corrosion and high temperature, and excellent insulation properties. It is widely used in packaging, thermoplastics, composite materials, sealing thermal bonding, electronic and electrical industries and other occasions where anti-static is required, bonding thermal bonding, anti-corrosion, insulation and other parts, and has the function of repeated pasting.

Fabric-reinforced Teflon tape has the characteristics of high strength and can be used in rollers of sizing machines, thermoplastic demoulding and other industries. It can be used repeatedly and is easy to replace. It can be directly attached to various large flat surfaces and regular curved surfaces (such as rollers), and the operation is simple. There are no restrictions such as the need for specialized equipment, special processes, and transportation to a professional spraying factory for processing when spraying PTFE materials. Using Teflon adhesive tape can eliminate the complicated process of spraying polytetrafluoroethylene anti-stick coating on the surface of the drying cylinder, and it also plays an anti-stick role. It greatly reduces labor intensity and is also beneficial to the protection of equipment. The downtime is short, the overall cost is low, and the economic benefits are high.

The maximum width can be 1250MM, and the color is usually brown. At the same time, it can be processed according to customer requirements.

What are the characteristics of Teflon tape?

1.Mainly used for low temperature -70 degrees Celsius and high temperature 300 degrees Celsius, with weather resistance and anti-aging;

2.The product itself is non-adhesive: Teflon tape is not easy to adhere to any substance and is easy to clean; oil stains, stains or other accessories, pastes, resins, paints and almost all sticky substances attached to the surface can be easily removed;

3.Resistant to chemical corrosion, strong acid, strong alkali, aqua regia and various organic solvents;

4.It is drug-resistant and non-toxic. Resistant to almost all pharmaceutical items;

5.It also has high insulation performance, UV protection, and anti-static;

6.Fire retardant;

7.It is very convenient to use and has a long service life.

What are the application ranges of Teflon tape?

Because Teflon tape has excellent flexibility and excellent flex resistance, it can maintain these properties over a wide temperature range without losing its original excellent chemical resistance. Put it in a solvent, acid and alkali resistant, or even cook it in strong acid or alkali, the strength of the film will not be lost. The water vapor permeability of Teflon film is very low, and the vapor permeability to air and most organic compounds is also very low (excluding esters and ketone organic compounds).

Teflon series products are widely used in various fields, such as aviation, aerospace, automobiles, electronics, electrical appliances, high-temperature insulation, food packaging, plastic products, papermaking, printing, dyeing, clothing, chemical anti-corrosion and other fields. They are silicone series tapes and acrylic series tapes. Silicone pressure-sensitive tapes are mostly used in parts with higher temperature resistance. They have excellent sticking and positioning fixity and long service life. Especially when used at a temperature of about ≥200℃, it can achieve the best effect. Acrylic series tapes are mostly pasted on parts with lower temperature resistance (generally ≥120°C). They have good results and are cheap. It is mainly used in packaging, lamination, sealing and heat sealing machinery that requires anti-stick heat and corrosion-resistant insulation.
