Highlights
  • Great for roller wrapping
  • Helps to reduce friction
  • Anti-stick and easy releasing
  • Superior sound management that offers squeak and rattle prevention

3M™ Polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE) Skived Tape 5480 is a high temperature PTFE film tape with a slick surface and silicone adhesive.

An Exceptionally Slick Surface
The skived film backing on 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 3M™ PTFE Skived Film Tape 5480 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 -65°F / -54°C to 500°F / 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
  • Mold 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.
