3M™ PTFE Film Tape 5490

3M Product Number  5490     
3M(TM) 5490 Gray Extruded Film
3M(TM) 5490 Gray Extruded Film
3M™ PTFE Film Tape 5490 uses an extruded polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE) film backing, which has an extremely low coefficient of friction, in combination with a pressure sensitive silicone adhesive to create non-stick surfaces over a variety of substrates.
  • Extruded, calendered film tapes that resist curling during unwind for easy application
  • Non-stick PTFE film provides an exceptionally smooth surface when applied
  • Extruded 3M™ PTFE Extruded Film Tape lies flatter than typical skived PTFE film tapes
  • Thicker backing helps extend the service life over thinner versions, when subjected to abrasion or wear
  • High strength and abrasion resistance ensures reliability and performance to reduce friction, rattle and machinery noise

Overview

Our extruded film backing resists curling when unwound from the roll and lies flatter than skived PTFE film tapes, creating a more uniform non-skid surface. Its thicker backing extends the useful life of the tape against abrasion and wear. We developed this high strength tape as a quick and easy solution to reduce friction between moving surfaces. It serves as an anti-stick or easy-release medium between surfaces where pressure, temperature changes and other factors may create a measure of adhesion. Applying 3M™ PTFE Film Tape 5490 can help improve surface movement and eliminate squeaks and rattles and reduce machine noise. PTFE is chemical resistant and can be used as a temporary chemical barrier. The tape has a wide temperature use range, from -650 to 500 degrees F/ -540 - 260 degrees C, making it suitable in a wide variety of applications.

  • Roller wrapping
  • Wire harnessing
  • Squeak reduction
  • Noise reduction
  • Insulating
  • Lining
  • Shielding
  • Protecting
  • Composite bonding
  • Flash breaking

What is PTFE Tape?
Polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE) is a synthetic material used in a variety of industries and applications to reduce the coefficient of friction. PTFE is used as a non-stick coating for frying pans and other cookware because of its non-stick property as well as high heat resistance. Its non-conductivity makes it an excellent insulating material for electrical applications. It is very non-reactive to numerous chemicals, partly due to the strength of carbon–fluorine bonds; making it very effective in containers and pipework for reactive and corrosive substances. PTFE reduces friction, wear and energy efficiency of machinery. Because of its low friction, PTFE is used in industrial applications where sliding action of parts is required, such as with bearings, gears, slide plates, etc. In these applications, it delivers significantly better performance than nylon and acetal. 3M has taken this versatile compound through an extrusion process to create a thin film, then paired the film with adhesive to make its PTFE tape. Innovative 3M PTFE tapes outperform competing tapes for reliability, endurance and ability to reduce friction.
