  • DuraStick® PTFE Coated Tapes
      DuraStick® PTFE Coated Tapes are engineered to retain the distinctive properties of PTFE; however, by adding a glass fabric to the matrix, DuraStick is able to obtain the added benefits of dimensional stability, durability, excellent tensile strength, and extremely low elongation (<1%). The addition of an adhesive on one side eliminates the need for mechanical fastening. Tapes with silicone adhesive operate over a wide temperature range, -100°F to 500°F (-73°C to 260°C), while tapes with acrylic adhesive operate over a narrower range of temperatures, -40°F to 350°F (-40°C to 177°C).

      The DuraStick® Industrial Tapes utilize DuraFab® Industrial Fabrics but have the added benefit of an adhesive on one side. These tapes are manufactured from woven fiberglass substrates, possess an optimal PTFE (Fluon®) content, leave a minimal fabric impression, and have a proprietary silicone or acrylic adhesive system. Because of the glass reinforcement, this series of tape is resistant to "cold-flow", a characteristic inherent in pure unsupported PTFE films, these tapes are an excellent choice when cut-through, load carrying, or harsh industrial environments require the unique surface characteristics of PTFE. This popular and versatile line of tapes provides the highest value to customers by offering an excellent balance of heat transfer, release, and flexibility.

  • PET Film Qualifying Questions
      Professional Plastics offers Melinex and Mylar brand PET films direct from Dupont Teijin Films. This is a huge product line with easily 50+ types of product.

      Before submitting inquiries, it helps to understand the following information:
    • What thickness do you need?
    • How is it being used (i.e., what kind of part are you making with it) ?
    • Do you need a surface-treament on one side or both sides of the material?

      Surface-treaments typically fall into two areas:
    • Slip (to prevent material from sticking to itself)
    • Adhesion (to promote bonding of other chemistries to the PET)

      Adhesion types typically fall into these categories:
    • Ink Adhesion - there are different pretreats for UV, solvent and digital inks
    • Coating Adhesion (for hardcoats or erasa-board type applications)
    • Adhesive Adhesion (for pressure-sensitive laminating)
