Details
  • Non-stick PTFE film provides an exceptionally slick surface for easy clean-up
  • Silicone adhesive provides clean removal from a variety of surfaces
  • Wide temperature range for performance on heated machinery and equipment
  • Thicker version of 3M™ PTFE Skived Film Tape 548, providing more durability and longer wear
  • Skived 3M™ PTFE Film Tapes are more conformable than typical extruded PTFE film tapes
  • Excellent chemical resistance enables tape to withstand challenging applications
  • Waterproof and easily removable

3M™ PTFE Skived Film Tape 5481 uses a skived, polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE), conformable film backing. This tape offers an extremely low coefficient of friction which, in combination with a pressure-sensitive silicone adhesive, creates a smooth, non-stick surface over a variety of substrates to assist in the movement of web materials in many types of roll-wrap applications.

Our skived film backing 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 5481 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

  • Roll-wrap for web processing, belts and plates where sticky materials and inks may occur
  • High temperature wire bundling and harnessing
  • High temperature wire bundling and harnessing
  • Shielding and protecting against chemicals
  • Mold release for composite bonding
