PTFE glass fibre tape
PTFE glass fibre tapes bring all the advantages of PTFE tape but combine it with a reinforced glass fibre reinforced backing. This results in a much higher tensile strength and a great resistance to tears and punctures. That makes PTFE glass fibre tapes welcome materials for the packaging industry. Other important characteristics are the good heat and chemical resistance and of course the well known anti-stick properties.
One of the main applications for PTFE glass fibre tape is heat sealing. In heat sealing it is important that the adhesive doesn’t make contact with the heating element. PTFE glass fibre can then serve as a barrier between the heating element and its hot surface and the material that needs sealing. Vanéflon provides you with the perfect zone tape (two types) for all your packaging needs with a lead time of less than two weeks.
PTFE glass fibres tapes are also commonly found in packaging that is used in cooling chambers or in environments with very high temperatures. In addition to this excellent resistance to a wide range of temperatures, they also offer a non-stick surface. Vanéflon delivers this PTFE glass fibre tape as non-adhesive or adhesive on one side from stock. The thickness can vary from 0,8 to 0,68 mm with a standard width of 100 mm.
