What color does Teflon tape have? Does the color of Teflon tape affect temperature resistance? published on

High temperature resistant Teflon tape is made of woven fabric which was made by imported glass fiber yarn and coated with Teflon (PTFE) resin or Teflon turning film, and treated with silicone pressure sensitive adhesive.high temperature Teflon tape, because of the different transliteration methods, also known as Teflon tape, ptfe tape, because of its sticky, also known as Teflon adhesive tape, ptfe adhesive tape, PTFE adhesive tape,etc.

What color does Teflon tape have? Does the color of Teflon tape affect temperature resistance?

The temperature resistance of Teflon tape is mainly determined by the properties of the adhesive, and it is not affected by the color. Whether it is Teflon fiberglass tape or Teflon tape, they all use the same adhesive. Therefore, the long-term working temperature can withstand 260 degrees, and the short-term temperature can withstand up to 280 degrees.

The color of Teflon fiberglass tape is mainly brown, also known as deep-brown, and black;The color of Teflon film tape is mainly gray, the thin color is dark gray,the thick color is light gray; customers if you have high requirements on color matching, you can choose among the above colors, Do not worry about the effect of color on temperature resistance.

Features of high temperature resistant Teflon tape

Teflon tape has a smooth surface, good anti-adhesion, chemical and high temperature resistance and excellent insulation properties. It is widely used in packaging, thermoplastic, composite, sealing and sealing, electrical and electronic industries, etc. Corrosion insulation and other parts can be pasted and have a repeating paste function. The fabric-reinforced Teflon tape is more powerful and can be applied to the sizing machine drum, thermoplastic demoulding and other industries, and can be used repeatedly and easily replaced. It can be directly attached to various large flat surfaces and regular curved surfaces (such as rollers) for easy operation. Elimination of the need to spray PTFE materials requires specialized equipment, special processes and must be transported to a professional spray factory for processing.

Good temperature resistance (continuous use temperature can be -70 to 260℃), it is safe to use even when used on overheated heaters.

Good anti-adhesiveness , and the “slag” of the melted packaging film will not stick to the heater.

Excellent electrical insulation.
Good running stability, good durability and easy maintenance.

Application and attention of PTFE (Teflon) mesh belt on heat shrink packaging machine published on

Due to the working environment of the heat shrinking machine, it is required to withstand high temperature and high gas permeability. Therefore, the PTFE (Teflon) mesh belt has been widely used due to its own advantages. PTFE (Teflon) mesh belt can be called a heat shrinkable mesh belt or a film wrapping machine belt.

Application and attention of PTFE (Teflon) mesh belt on heat shrink packaging machine

The normal size of mesh: 1*1mm, 2*2.5mm, 4*4mm, 10*10mm; The normal color: brown and black. Comprehensive comparison, we recommend to choose our 4*4mm mesh belt, because we are using the double-twisted double-grain fiberglass mesh to impregnate the PTFE (Teflon) emulsion, the color is brown, the quality is good, and the price is relatively cheap.

Another point of attention related to the use of the mesh belt is that the machine must be installed horizontally, otherwise the service life of the electric heating tube will be shortened; for the machine with the conveyor belt, the inclined installation will cause the conveyor belt to deviate from the center and shorten the service life of the mesh belt.

PTFE (Teflon) mesh belt is made of PTFE emulsion and impregnated with high-performance glass fiber mesh. It is a high performance, multi-purpose composite product, and it’s widely used in paper, food, environmental protection, printing and dyeing, clothing, chemicals, glass, medicine, electronics, insulation, grinding wheel slicing, machinery and other fields.

How to more effectively protect Teflon mesh conveyor belt

How to more effectively protect Teflon mesh conveyor belt published on

The main damages of Teflon mesh conveyor belt are mesh wear, covered edge wear, joint damage, mesh belt elongation and Teflon coating off, the most serious is the mesh surface damage, joint damage and covered edge wear.

Mesh surface wear mainly is the filament breaks during use, as mesh banding caused by tearing the mouth is getting bigger and bigger, we can not can not use sharp objects with the mesh surface friction in the production process.

Covered edge wear mainly is caused by deviation, once the Teflon mesh conveyor belt running deviation, it is easy to cause the covered edges have intense friction with conveyor baffle on both sides, causing damage to the mesh belt edges, so Teflon mesh conveyor belt in the course of the deviation should be corrected in time.

There are two main causes of joint damage, one is Teflon mesh conveyor belt factory use unqualified joints, or the joints are not sewn 7 times Kevlar high temperature string. Another is customers adjust the mesh belt too tight and the use of Teflon mesh conveyor belt with too long time, resulting to joints aging and loose.

Above are some effective ways to protect the Teflon mesh conveyor belt effectively.

How to improve the service life of Teflon Conveyor Belt

How to improve the service life of Teflon Conveyor Belt published on

Teflon conveyor belt in the course of the use of easily has some problems, how to improve its service life?

Rope-type conveyor belt transverse strength is insufficient, At startup, belt wheel will cause the local force of the conveyor belt is too large, causing the conveyor belt to tear. To avoid this problem, to extend the service life of the conveyor belt, can be any of the concave transition of the driving wheel at the wheel umbrella to change the claw belt roller.

To extend the life of the Teflon conveyor belt to prevent early damage, can be achieved by improving the conveyor belt hopper. By improving the hopper at the transfer of the belt conveyor, to increasing hopper the ability of through foreign material by 2.5 times, Long, large foreign body in the transport process is not easy to be stuck between the funnel wall and conveyor belt, and effectively reduce the damage to the conveyor belt, the hopper is improved, the gap between the skirting board and the net belt of the hopper is running in the direction of the conveyor belt, and the material will not be stuck between the conveyor belt and the baffle plate, thus eliminating the damage of the mesh belt caused thereby.

To ensure that the conveyor belt does not appear folded, the phenomenon of the middle of the bulge, to reduce the wear and tear of the conveyor belt surface, can be improved by the conveyor head, tail and intermediate transfer of the transition length and transition method to achieve, but also to avoid the phenomenon of the blanking at the material leakage.

Teflon conveyor belts are consumables, so the use of life is not very long, which requires reasonable use and maintenance in order to extend its service life. Maintenance and maintenance of conveyor belt should be adjusted in accordance with seasonal changes along the correction device, plus sunscreen and winter maintenance and other measures. From the start to the late use should pay attention to maintenance.
