High Temperature, Heat & Chemical Resistant PTFE Impregnated Fabric with
acrylic or silicone self adhesive backing
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.

High-Temperature PTFE Impregnated
This high temperature, heat resistant and chemical resistant fabric with self adhesive backing and a release film is used in packaging as a non-stick release surface on heat sealers, blister and form fill sealing equipment. Used on guide rails chutes and slides. Excellent resistance to almost all solvents, caustics and acids.
Used as an insulation buffer for RF sealing, and as a surface cover on L Bar, Impulse and Bag sealers.
This material is a tan color.
The base fiberglass fabric is rated to 1000°F / 537°C, while the PTFE coating melting point is 620°F / 327°C.
Available in 5 weights / thicknesses, in roll widths of 36 to 39.5" in a roll length of 36 yards.
The PTFE resin is applied to the fabric in a hot process and under pressure, causing a total impregnation of the base fabric. The surface of the resin is smooth and it takes considerable and aggressive force to scratch the ptfe surface to remove it from the fabric with fingernail scraping.
Available in Standard and Premium grades. Premium grade has an almost perfectly smooth surface while standard grade surface has some profiling of the underlying base fabric
