PTFE Tape

Characteristics

EGC’s insulated PTFE tape offers excellent sealing properties where high temperature or chemical resistance is needed in electrical applications. Applications include cable insulation, flight actuators, landing gear, and braking systems.

It is resistant to oils, chemicals, water, solvents, and gases and can be manufactured in a variety of colors:

  • Natural
  • Standard White
  • High Contrast White (laser markable)
  • Gray (laser markable)

Our capabilities are diverse and are designed to meet a wide range of requirements. We manufacture tape in thicknesses starting at 0.0025'' (0.064 mm) and widths from 3/16" to 11-1/2" (4.7 to 292.1 mm). Product is delivered in rolls that can be packaged as either pancake or traverse-wound, depending on the slit width.

Tape Properties include:

  • Dielectric:
    • Surfactic Resistivity: ~104Ω
    • Volumic Resistivity: ~25400Ω in.
    • The dielectric strength remains almost constant at 250°C (482°F)
  • Density: 1.55-1.80 g/cm3
  • Temperature:
    • Temperature range: -200°F to 500°F (128°C to 260°C)
  • Non-flammable
