DEWAL INDUSTRIES OFFERS ADHESIVE-BACKED, PTFE-COATED ALUMINUM TAPE

June 21, 2007

DeWAL Industries, combining PTFE-coated aluminum foil with adhesive backing, has created a better tape for heat-sealing and other applications.

Among many applications, the tape, DW 351, is used in high-volume heat-sealing equipment and is used as wear strips in light duty sliding applications.

DW 351 combines aluminum foil with PTFE (Teflon®) coating backed with a high-temperature, pressure-sensitive silicone adhesive. The result is an abrasion-resistant tape with high tensile strength, along with impact and “cut-through” resistance. The silicone adhesive backing allows it to release cleanly from metal and ceramic surfaces, even rough or inconsistent surfaces.

DW 351 is available in 5-mil-thick, 18-yard-long rolls and can ordered in any width from ½ inch to 12 inches.
