550°F / 287°C Continuous Exposure: Higher Intermittent
High Temperature Tape: Heat Resistant & Thermal Insulating
PTFE (Teflon) Coated Fiberglass Tape
High-Temperature PTFE (Teflon)
Coated Fiberglass Tape
This high temperature, heat resistant and thermal insulating teflon (ptfe) coated tape offers the advantage of a non-asbestos material with a higher temperature range and with excellent resistance to almost all solvents, caustics and acids. This high temperature teflon coated tape is used as a gasket and seal material and also as an insulation material for wire, cable, hose, tube and pipe carrying high or low temperature liquids or gases.
The base fiberglass fabric is rated to 1000°F / 537°C while the PTFE (Teflon) melting point is 620°F / 327°C.
Available in 1/16", 1/8" and 3/16" thickness and 0.5" to 6" widths.
The high temperature and chemical resistant tape is available in Plain and Drop Warp Styles. Drop Warp tape has several of the center lengthwise yarns missing during weaving, and allows the tape to be easily used for bolt-hole applications (sometimes called a ladder tape or bolt-hole style tape).
The PTFE (Teflon) is applied to the sleeve by dipping the sleeve through an immersion tank of liquid PTFE dispersion. The sleeve is then air dried as it leaves the dip tank. The result is a PTFE coating on the sleeve which is soft, robust and flexible; however, it can be abrasively removed from the sleeve with aggressive fingernail scraping, resulting in a thinner and thinner layer of ptfe remaining with each pass. The PTFE also causes the yarns to be sealed and the small gaps between the yarns filled, resulting in an almost air-tight / liquid-tight sleeve wall.
Materials that resist catching fire, burn slowly, or retard burning can be described as either "incombustible", "non-flammable", "non-combustible", "fire-resistant" or "fire-retardant". "Self-extinguishing" materials cease burning once the flame or heat source is removed. "Fireproof" is understood to mean that an object cannot burn, but few materials are truly fireproof.
Most of our products fall within one or more of the above descriptions: they resist high temperature, flame, fire, molten metal splash and weld splatter very well but may melt with prolonged exposures past their designed maximum continuous operating temperature. They can also provide OSHA, ANSI-FM & NFPA compliance and personnel protection.
Using our products to retain heat or cold within pipes, hoses, enclosures or equipment helps conserve energy and resources, and reduces operating costs.
