Details
  • Non-stick PTFE film provides an exceptionally slick surface for easy clean-up
  • Rubber adhesive provides clean removal from a variety of surfaces where silicone is not permitted
  • Resists high temperatures in manufacturing operations
  • Extruded 3M™ PTFE Film Tape lies flatter than typical skived PTFE film tapes
  • High strength and abrasion resistance ensures reliability and performance to reduce friction, rattle, and machinery noise
  • Waterproof and easily removable

3M™ PTFE Film Tape 5498 uses an extruded polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE) film backing. This tape offers an extremely low coefficient of friction which, in combination with a pressure-sensitive rubber adhesive, creates a smooth, non-stick surface over a variety of substrates to assist in mold release applications where a non-silicone tape is required.

The 3M™ PTFE Film Tape 5498 resists curling when unwound from the roll and lies flatter than skived PTFE film tapes, creating a more uniform non-skid surface. It is a quick and easy solution to reduce friction between moving surfaces. It functions as an anti-stick or easy-release medium where pressure, temperature changes, and other factors may create a measure of adhesion. Applying 3M™ PTFE Film Tape 5491 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. Dispensable and appropriate for outdoor use.

Suggested Applications

  • Great for masking and bundling of composite parts prior to bonding operations where there is concern of silicone contamination
  • Mold release tape for composite bonding
  • Masking of critical parts where silicone contamination is a concern
