PTFE Tape is a fluoropolymer suitable for use up to 260 °C (500 °F) and is flame-retardant and non-propagating in fire conditions. PTFE is a heat-fused tape spiral-wrapped over individual conductors forming a seamless layer of insulation. Conductors are laid parallel and jacketing is applied through a similar process creating a duplex construction. The product is moisture/chemical resistant and provides low friction when pulled. This construction also provides all the benefits of FEP with a higher temperature rating.
A wide variety of industrial applications include, but are not limited to; Aerospace, Petrochemical, Food & Beverage Processing & Composite Autoclaves.
