Overview

3M™ General Purpose PTFE Skived Film Tape 5181 is a thicker backing version of our Tape 5180, providing numerous benefits to the end user, including a skived film for conformability to rollers and slick surface to reduce friction. You will find this tape ideal for sealing or masking to protect contoured surfaces from harmful chemicals and wear.

Recommended Applications

  • Wrapping rubber laminating rollers on hot polyethylene extruders to create a release surface to help minimize clean-up
  • Easy-release-surface provided by wrapping rollers, plates, belts and other surfaces where build-up of sticky materials and inks can occur
  • Chemical resistant surface for sealing and masking

When it comes to roller wrapping, one of the main goals is to increase efficiency and throughput. Our 3M™ General Purpose PTFE Skived Film Tape 5181 helps users achieve this goal because it is anti-stick to reduce friction – contributing to improvements in the manufacturing process. With squeak and rattle prevention, users have a product that also delivers sound management.

Simplified Clean Up
It is easy to forget that a tape’s performance should be judged not just on its adhesion, but also on how it removes from work surfaces. With the 3M™ General Purpose PTFE Skived Film Tape 5181, cleanup is simple. By wrapping rubber laminating rollers or hot polyethylene extruders, you can create a release surface to help minimize clean-up. It’s common for inks and sticky materials to build up on rollers, plates and belts that see heavy use in the production process. Use of our tape can cut down on the mess. Our easy-off tape means that the tape removes cleanly in one piece without leaving behind tape fragments or unwanted adhesive residue.
