PTFE Adhesive Tapes – PTFE coated adhesive backed tapes are high performance products that offer excellent release characteristics whilst being able to cope with extreme temperatures. They are manufactured with a high temperature resistant surface made with Teflon. The opposite side is specially prepared with an etching solution. The surface allows a pressure sensitive silicone adhesive to be applied.
PTFE adhesive tapes are often used as a release tape for the protection of sealing jaws and heat-sealing wires on equipment such as bag and L- sealing machines. They can also be found in vacuum and blister packing machines.
L sealers work by heating a wire element up. Plastic is both cut and melted together to form a sealed bag that can then be shrink wrapped through a hot oven known as a shrink wrap tunnel. PTFE adhesive tape is used to cover the wire. It prevents molten plastic from sticking to the hot wire.
