Skived PTFE film. Applied to thermal, chemical and corrosion protection.
A large variety of gaskets with different cross sections and diameters are made out of Dyneon PTFE grades as well as Dyneon™ PTFE compounds. This means we can offer the perfect match for your production and application requirements. And if you need some technical expertise, our APD team is happy to support you.
If you have machine parts in motion you need dynamic seals to act as a barrier between stationary and moving surfaces. But it's not as simple as that. Radial and axial seals have different application requirements. The use of lubricants can increase the challenges to the sealing material. Whenever the conditions are really getting harsh Dyneon Fluoropolymers are the answer.
For electrical isolation, thermal protection, packaging, circuit board marking and many other applications, you are best off using self-adhesive tape made from skived PTFE film with a special surface treatment for adhesive coating.
Corrosion protection - it's a key critical issue in the chemical processing industry. Skived Dyneon PTFE films protect valuable equipment and optimize total cost of ownership.
Get extremely smooth gliding action even at temperature extremes and high pressure. If you are moving heavy loads under extreme conditions in the chemical, petrochemical and cryogenic processing industry, or supporting natural thermal expansion movements of bridges, rail tracks and overland pipe lines, sliding pads made from 3M™ Dyneon™ PTFE or 3M™ Dyneon™ PTFE Compounds are the material of choice.
Universal chemical resistance. Outstanding thermal stability. Combined, these qualities mean spliced yarns manufactured from skived PTFE films can be used in a huge variety of compression packing applications in the chemical industry (e.g. pumps). These PTFE yarns can be impregnated with PTFE dispersion, talc or graphitized PTFE dispersion for improved sliding behaviour.
Protect against corrosion of chemical reactors and vessels. Dyneon PTFE films bonded to substrates like glass- or carbon fibre fabrics also bond to the vessel base material, levelling out the different thermal expansion coefficients in use.
