3M™ 5498 PTFE Film Tape
3M™ PTFE Film Tape 5498 uses an extruded polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE) film backing. This tape offers an extremely low coefficient of friction which, in combination with a pressure sensitive rubber adhesive, creates a smooth, non-stick surface over a variety of substrates to assist in mold release applications where a non-silicone tape is required.
This tape is a quick and easy release medium between surfaces where pressure, temperature changes and other factors may create a measure of adhesion, particularly in composite bonding applications. Applying 3M™ PTFE Film Tape 5498 can help reduce stick of composite resins to mold surfaces, even under a wide range of temperatures (from 40°F/4°C to 350°F/177°C) and pressures. The rubber adhesive is a non-silicone formulation designed to remove cleanly from surfaces where silicone is not permitted.
