PTFE 5453 glass cloth tape
Introducing the 3M™ 5453, this PTFE tape uses a Brown woven glass cloth backing offering with PTFE integrated and a silicone adhesive offering high-temperature performance. This tape provides a non-stick, low friction surface for a broad range of surfaces, including metals, plastics and wood. The 3M 5453 quality tape provides shear strength, surface adhesion and abrasive resistance that ensures reliability and high performance. The excellent abrasion resistance makes it ideal for many tough impact wear or sliding applications.
This tape is made from glass cloth that is impregnated with PTFE, providing excellent resistance to tearing and high temperatures, as well as good non-stick properties.
Normally designed for protection of heater elements, mounting probes in ovens, hot assembly of dies and printing plates, etc.
Also used to create non-stick surfaces for packing, ironing and hot closing machines, etc.
Some of PTFEs key material characteristics are the fact that its both extremely low friction, and is hydrophobic (meaning it repels water). This makes PTFE tape incredibly useful for a wide range of plumbing and pipework jobs and heated equipment and machinery.
