3M PTFE Film Tape 5498 is an industrial grade tape product used for masking and bundling composite machine parts. This a PTFE part that is characterized by its use of rubber adhesive as an alternative to PTFE tapes constructed with silicone adhesives for applications where there is a need to avoid silicone contamination.
Mold release tape for composite bonding Masking of critical parts where silicone contamination is a concern Masking and bundling of composite parts prior to bonding operations where silicone contamination is a concern Lining of composite bonding tool frames where silicone contamination is a concern
Non-stick PTFE film provides an exceptionally slick surface for easy clean-up
Resists high temperatures in manufacturing operations
Extruded 3M™ PTFE Film Tape lies flatter than typical skived PTFE film tapes
Rubber adhesive provides clean removal from a variety of surfaces where silicone is not permitted
High strength and abrasion resistance ensures reliability and performance to reduce friction, rattle and machinery noise
