Gold Maximum Duty PTFE Tape

Gold Maximum Tapes utilize Gold Fabrics but have the added benefit of an adhesive on one side. These tapes are manufactured from PTFE coated woven fiberglass substrates, utilizing proprietary coating formulations and have a silicone or acrylic adhesive system.

Gold Tapes are specifically engineered to maximize application life, while minimizing down time in the most demanding environments. Gold Tapes are non-stick; offer excellent release and are resistant to oils, grease and chemicals. Gold Tapes are available in either an extremely smooth surface for maximum release or a textured finish for a mechanical release. The texturally surface provides a mechanical bond or seal, which is desired in many heat-sealing applications. Gold Tapes are more abrasion resistant and maintain their low coefficient of friction even after prolonged service.

Gold Tapes are excellent for use in the most challenging applications, such as PVC window welding, food processing, IV Bags sealing, Mylar Balloons sealing, rubber extruding, flexible packaging as well as many other applications. Gold Tapes have been designed to out perform and out last all competitive products. Gold Tapes are engineered to retain the distinctive properties of PTFE; however, by adding a glass fabric to the matrix, results in benefits of dimensional stability, durability, excellent tensile strength, and extremely low elongation (<1%). The addition of an adhesive on one side eliminates the need for mechanical fastening.

Tapes with silicone adhesive operate over a wide temperature range, -100°F to 500°F (-73°C to 260°C), while tapes with acrylic adhesive operate over a narrower range of temperatures, -40°F to 350°F (-40°C to 177°C).

    All figures provided in the above table are based upon ASTM D 4969-97, the Standard Specification for Polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE) Coated Glass Fabric. The above tensile values are based upon the ASTM D902 test method and are not actual values of AFC's materials. The above tensile values are 80% of the figures provided in Table 6 of specification D579. AFC states that its actual tensile will be greater than the above material specification and that actual tensile values will be provided upon request. AFC measures adhesion according to ASTM D 3654/D 3654M, Standard Test Methods for Shear Adhesion of Pressure-Sensitive Tapes, and actual adhesion values will vary. Edge Tear values are based upon ASTM D1424 (Elmendorf Tearing Test) and are average values that can vary.
