Application field of Unidirection eptfe joint tape
Unidirection eptfe joint tape manufacturers tell you that polytetrafluoroethylene is a polymer with excellent chemical resistance and is a widely used plastic in industrial sealing. The media that can chemically attack PTFE are liquid alkali metals and free fluorine. PTFE has excellent electrical insulation, anti-sticking, impact resistance and extremely low coefficient of friction.
Due to its excellent ductility, Unidirection eptfe joint tape is particularly suitable for compensating irregularities or damages in sealing areas as well as in all stress-sensitive joints. The special manufacturing process makes the longitudinal and transverse tensile strength almost equal. Therefore, the material does not change its width under compression. This is in stark contrast to normal expanded PTFE tape!
Due to this property, Unidirection eptfe joint tape is very suitable as a gasket material for narrow sealing areas and for all applications where a defined gasket width (under load) is required. Typical applications include enamelled and glass flanges, heat exchangers, large flanges and vessels, pressure vessels, suction strainers and strainers, etc.
