The general purpose CHR® and CHEMSTICK® pressure-sensitive tapes consist of polytetrafluorethylene (PTFE) fabrics or PTFE fabric laminates coated with adhesive on one side. Easily positioned and easily removed, they are a convenient way of providing a non-stick surface on a range of equipment. These tapes are designed to withstand high temperatures and frequent compressions, therefore will have a long service life in many industrial settings. They are also excellent insulators which retain excellent mechanical and electrical properties even in high temperature environments.
Heat sealing – in the packaging industry these tapes are used to cover the sealing jaws in packaging machines
Food processing – used to line chutes and guide rails
Components – used for electrical insulation on high temperature transformers, coils and motors, as well as lay-up and insulation for components
Textile industry – used to cover dryer cylinders
Polymer processing – used to line solvent recovery units and create a protective barrier on paper/film extrusion coating lines
PVC welding – used to cover metallic and RF welding platens
Industrial splicing and seaming (especially of other fluoropolymer materials).
