PTFE glass fabrics consist of a woven fiberglass that has been coated with a PTFE resin. They are designed for a wide range of applications and come in several grades to meet specific performance requirements. These fabrics have a nonstick surface, perform well under temperatures ranging from -100° F to 500° F. They also are chemically inert, have high tensile strength and have outstanding electrical properties. Typical applications include the heat-sealing or cutting of plastic bags or film, the manufacturing of dress shirts and blouses in the sizing process (to seal necks, collars and cuffs without damaging the fabric), thermal insulation, conveyor belts, gaskets, seals, bearing liners, and nonstick surfaces for paints, adhesives and food products. A variety of industries use PTFE glass fabrics, including packaging, aerospace, electronics and petroleum processing.
Skived PTFE Tape is made with polytetrafluoroethylene and a pressure sensitive silicone adhesive on one side. Skived PTFE tape is highly conformable with 300% elongation. PTFE tape features superior insulating strength, is non-stick, flexible, high temperature, as well as chemical, heat & moisture resistant. Other properties include no porosity, excellent release, and of course it has a super-low coefficient of friction. Also used as an insulating and masking tape.
Our skived PTFE sheets provide unsurpassed precision and cleanliness for a wide range of critical applications, including tank lining in the chemical processing and semiconductor industries, where the prevention of leakage and contamination is vital to material purity and integrity.
Skived PTFE sheets and films are available in a wide range of materials and in continuous rolls or cut to your desired length. We offer standard or custom widths to help you reduce scrap and waste. We can also laminate, punch, or die cut all of our skived PTFE sheet and film products. All our skived PTFE sheets and films can be furnished with one or both surfaces etched for adhesive bonding.
