Product Details

PTFE 5453 glass cloth tape

Introducing the 3M™ 5453, this PTFE tape uses a Brown woven glass cloth backing offering with PTFE integrated and a silicone adhesive offering high-temperature performance. This tape provides a non-stick, low friction surface for a broad range of surfaces, including metals, plastics and wood. The 3M 5453 quality tape provides shear strength, surface adhesion and abrasive resistance that ensures reliability and high performance. The excellent abrasion resistance makes it ideal for many tough impact wear or sliding applications.

This tape is made from glass cloth that is impregnated with PTFE, providing excellent resistance to tearing and high temperatures, as well as good non-stick properties.
Normally designed for protection of heater elements, mounting probes in ovens, hot assembly of dies and printing plates, etc.
Also used to create non-stick surfaces for packing, ironing and hot closing machines, etc.

Some of PTFE’s key material characteristics are the fact that it’s both extremely low friction, and is hydrophobic (meaning it repels water). This makes PTFE tape incredibly useful for a wide range of plumbing and pipework jobs and heated equipment and machinery.

Features and Benefits

Premium glass cloth reinforced backing provides greater tensile strength and resistance to tears and punctures than typical PTFE film backed tapes

Silicone adhesive offers high-temperature performance and long ageing

Provides a non-stick, low friction surface on heat sealing and packaging equipment

Thicker backing helps extend the service life over thinner versions when subjected to abrasion and wear

Performs under a wide range of temperatures, including up to 500°F/260°C

Very low moisture absorption allows the tape to perform in many humid environments

Excellent chemical resistance enables the tape to withstand challenging applications


Where would you use 3M™ PTFE tape?

The 3M™ PTFE tape can be used when fitting compression joints and is widely used by plumbers and DIY enthusiasts on radiator valves and taps.

Designed to be applied in applications that require a low level of friction and the movement of parts/materials.

What is the shelf life of this tape?

To obtain the best performance, use this product within 24 months from the date of dispatch from the manufacturer.
