Mechanical Grade PTFE-Glass Fabric

Mechanical Grade PTFE-Glass Fabric is preferred in applications where economy is more important than maximum resistance to chemicals and solvents. Applications include chemical resistant laboratory aprons, protective curtains for paint spraying and bottle washing, acid protection and food packaging. Benefits: Medium coating of PTFE to resist temperatures and chemicals Ideal for applications where increased surface texture is useful

Open Mesh Fabric

Open mesh materials are often used in the creation of belts because they allow outgassing of volatile products and promote drying by allowing airflow through the belt. These belts are ideal for drying, curing and bonding inks, pigments and powders to fabrics and non-woven materials.

Premium Grade

Premium Grade PTFE-Glass Fabric offers optimum release and durability in harsh environments. Applications include reusable pan liners for cooking and baking, laminate separator sheets, tortilla and pizza crust belts, heat sealing and applications where fabric weave impression is undesirable. Benefits: Highest PTFE-to-substrate ratio Designed for extreme environments where superior release and extended life are critical Excellent chemical resistance and electrical strength

Silicone Rubber Coated Fabric

Silicone Rubber Coated Fiberglass Fabric offers a tough coated surface for applications where high flexibility and a high slip coefficient are required. It is an excellent electrical insulator in harsh environments, has high resistance to mild alkali, non-oxidizing acids, most salts, mineral lubricating oil, air, moisture and sunlight and it will release adhesive and viscous materials which often adhere to a fluorocarbon resin. Applications for silicone coated fabric include electrical insulation tapes, gaskets, heater covers, safety curtains, conveyor belts for industrial processes, foam manufacturing, shrink tunnels and release and separator sheets for viscous processes in the chemical, rubber, plastic, electrical and aerospace industries. Benefits:
  • Excellent release properties up to 450 °F (232 °C)
  • Good chemical, abrasion and flex resistance
  • Outstanding dielectric properties
  • Does not exhibit the low friction surface or self lubricating properties of PTFE coated fabrics

Standard Grade

Standard Grade PTFE-Glass Fabric is used in the widest range of applications due to its combination of high performance and moderate price. Applications include release sheets on heat-sealing machines and laminate presses, release surface for paints, adhesives and food products, gaskets, seals and bearings for chemicals, oils, and gases, thermal insulation for high-temperature and chemical-resistant applications and covers on hot platens, chutes, hoppers and troughs. Benefits: Offers a smooth surface with superior non-stick properties Cost effective release surface solution

Tac-Black™ Anti-Static/Conductive Fabric

Tac-Black™  Anti-Static/Conductive Fabric are specially treated fabrics that reduce static buildup. Tac-Black™ is ideal as release sheets and as conveyor belts for fusing machines to bond woven & non-woven fabrics. Benefits: Can be provided with carbon loading which gives semi-conductive and anti-static properties Eliminates or reduces static in belt and slip sheet applications
