DeWAL Industries Inc. is now manufacturing a PTFE-coated foil that combines a thin layer of PTFE with 0.005” thick aluminum foil.
The aluminum is coated on
the other side with a pressure-sensitive silicone adhesive for a sure grip on
metal, glass or ceramic surfaces.
The result, D/W 351, is a heat-resistant
tape featuring PTFE’s chemical resistance, wide operating temperatures and a
low coefficient of friction. The foil backing is comprised of a standard 3003
grade of aluminum. Properties are consistent because of the foil’s
uniform thickness of 0.005” with a tolerance of +/- 5%.
DeWAL D/W 351 is used in
applications like high volume heat-sealing equipment in food packaging and
bagging, and as a limited-use wear strip. D/W 351 is available in widths
from 0.5” to 12”. The roll length is 11 yards.
