Teflon tape, also known as Teflon tape, Teflon adhesive tape, Teflon adhesive tape, PTFE tape, etc., is a Teflon glass fiber produced by coating Teflon (PTFE) resin after glass fiber yarn. adhesive tape.
1 Features of Teflon tape
Teflon tape has smooth surface, good anti-adhesion, chemical corrosion resistance, high temperature resistance and excellent insulation performance. It is widely used in packaging, thermoplastic, composite, sealing and heat sealing, electrical and electronic industries. Corrosion insulation and other parts are pasted, and it has the function of repeated pasting.
The fabric-reinforced Teflon tape has the characteristics of high strength and can be used in the drum of sizing machine, thermoplastic mold release and other industries. It can be used repeatedly and is easy to replace. It can be directly attached to various large planes and regular curved surfaces (such as rollers), and the operation is simple. Eliminate the need for professional equipment, special process and transportation to professional spraying factories for processing PTFE materials.
2 Reasons for residual glue in Teflon tape
After the Teflon tape is baked at high temperature, there will be residual glue, glue overflow and other phenomena. It will be found that there are tiny residues through hand feel or close observation. This tiny residue has a great impact on production. This phenomenon may be that the high temperature resistance data of the tape does not meet the production requirements. The high temperature resistance required is usually 210-260 degrees, so it should be confirmed before production whether it meets the production requirements.
If the temperature of the production line is too high, and it is not within the scope of the process requirements, there will also be residual glue, and you should check whether the temperature sensor is normal; the Teflon high temperature tape product itself has quality problems. The baking data of the sensitive adhesive is heated and cured, and the curing time is not enough or the coating line speed is too fast, BASF teflon, which will cause the glue, primer glue, and substrate to be unable to combine components; when the Teflon tape is coated by the coating machine After the rubber roller is coated, the semi-finished products generally need to stand for 2-3 days before rewinding and slitting. This is mainly to allow the glue and the substrate to be fully combined. The glue is completely cured in a natural state. If it is not completely After curing, rewinding and slitting are carried out, and residual glue will appear.
In response to the phenomenon of residual glue, the first and most important thing is to control the quality of Teflon tape. Before putting into production, a preliminary high-temperature screening test of ozone should be carried out to meet the company’s requirements before use.
3 How to use Teflon tape more reasonably
1. Use Teflon tape with yellow release paper, so that it can be stored for a long time without changing its viscosity.
2. Do not use sharp metal tools to rub the surface of the tape, and regularly wipe the surface of the tape with a damp cloth.
3. Do not pour acid, alkali and organic chemical solvents on the surface of the tape to ensure the drying and cleaning of the surface of the tape.
4. Try to purchase cost-effective tapes. You cannot blindly pursue cheap prices and ignore the quality of tapes.
5. The temperature and tensile strength used should be within the reasonable range of Teflon tape, not all environments, processes, and equipment can be used.
4 Application of Teflon Tape in Coil Processing
1. Edge guide belt
The melted liquid PE is coated (laminated) on the surface of cardboard or other materials (such as film, aluminum foil, etc.). In this coating process, because the liquid high-temperature PE at the edge will contaminate or burn the roller at high temperature, a closed belt made of adhesive tape is needed to make a closed belt at the corresponding positions of the inner and outer edges of the cardboard. The belt rotates with the machine to protect the cold cylinder (cooling drum).
2. Guide roller coating
Wrap the Teflon tape on the outside of the drive roller by wrapping the surface of the whole roller, partially or edge wrapping, etc., to prevent the liquid high temperature PE from contaminating or scalding the guide roller.
