ePTFE Tape is an ideal form-in-place gasket material made from 100% pure virgin PTFE that has been expanded to achieve a foamy structure. The tape comes with one-side adhesive that aids in installation by allowing an exact placement of the gasket lining.
Expanded PTFE (ePTFE) is a highly specialised product manufactured by only a handful of companies in the world. It is produced through a carefully monitored process and is available in both mono-axial and bi-axial forms.
ePTFE Tapes fall somewhere between sintered PTFE tapes (made from skiving a fully sintered PTFE billet) and thread sealant tape (made from calendaring unsintered PTFE strips). As such, they imbibe the electrical properties of skived tapes, while retaining the malleable structure of thread sealant tape. Furthermore, the foamy structure allows for better thermal insulation as compared to both the other variants.
Poly Fluoro remains the only manufacturer of ePTFE gasket tapes in India. As such, we are in a unique position to be the preferred suppliers to some of India’s largest OEMs. Further, our in-house manufacturing process is fully customisable, allowing us to alter the width, thickness, and even the material composition of our tapes. This means that our product can be tailored to meet the exact end-use of the client application.
