  • Skived 3M™ PTFE Film Tapes are more conformable than typical extruded PTFE film tapes
  • Chemical resistance enables tape to withstand many applications
  • Waterproof and easily removable

3M™ General Purpose PTFE Skived Film Tape 5181 uses a skived, polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE), conformable film backing. This tape offers a low coefficient of friction which, in combination with a pressure-sensitive silicone adhesive, provides a slick surface over a variety of substrates to assist in general purpose, non-stick applications requiring high temperature performance.

We developed this general purpose tape as a quick and easy solution to reduce friction between moving surfaces in non-critical applications. The skived backing provides good conformability when unwound from the roll compared to 3M extruded PTFE film tapes. 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™ General Purpose PTFE Skived Film Tape 5181 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. This tape is also easily removable making it a good choice for delicate items.

Suggested Applications

  • General purpose roll-wrap for web processing
  • Squeak and noise reduction
  • Shielding and protecting against chemicals
