  • Wide temperature range for performance on heated machinery and equipment
  • Skived 3M™ PTFE Film Tapes are more conformable than typical extruded PTFE film tapes

3M™ PTFE Skived Film Tape 5480 uses a skived, polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE), conformable film backing. Our tape offers an extremely low coefficient of friction.

An exceptionally slick surface, our 3M™ PTFE Skived Film Tape 5480 provides good conformability when unwound from the roll compared to typical extruded PTFE film tapes. We developed this tape as a quick and easy solution to reduce friction between moving surfaces. It functions as an anti-stick or easy-release medium between surfaces where pressure, temperature changes and other factors may create a measure of adhesion. Applying this tape can help improve surface movement, eliminate squeaks and rattles, and reduce machine noise. PTFE is chemical resistant and can be used as a temporary chemical barrier. The tape has a wide temperature use range, from -54 °C to 260 °C, making it suitable for a variety of applications. Recommended applications: • Roll-wrap for web processing, belts and plates where sticky materials and inks may occur • High temperature wire bundling and harnessing • Squeak and noise reduction • Shielding and protecting against chemicals • Mould release for composite bonding What is PTFE? Polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE) is a synthetic material used in a variety of industries and applications to reduce the coefficient of friction. Because of its non-stick properties and high heat resistance, PTFE is used as a non-stick coating for frying pans and other cookware. It makes an excellent insulating material for electrical applications because of its non-conductivity. PTFE is non-reactive to numerous chemicals, due to the chemical resistance of fluoropolymer bonds; making it effective in containers and pipework for reactive and corrosive substances. PTFE reduces friction, wear and energy efficiency of machinery. Because of its low friction, PTFE is used in industrial applications where sliding action of parts is required, such as with bearings, gears, slide plates, etc. In these applications, it delivers significantly better performance than nylon or acetal. 3M has taken this versatile compound through an extrusion process.
