GUIDELINES FOR AFFIXING PTFE ADHESIVE TAPES

It is advisable to follow the below mentioned instructions for the best performance of our Adhesive tapes.

SURFACE PREPARATION :

  • Clean the roll/bar/sheet/rod etc. where you want to stick the tape with dry cloth or zero number Sand paper.
  • Remove all dirt, grease, carbon etc.
  • Gently rub the surface with the solvent such as acetone, methyl ethyl ketone (MEK) etc. and see that the roll/bar/sheet/rod  etc. is dry,  clean & slightly rough EVEN A SLIGHT OIL OR DIRT LEFT ON SURFACE CAN IMPAIR ADHESION STRENGTH

HOW TO APPLY PTFE ADHESIVE TAPES :

  • Open release paper (yellow corrugated) from one side & start to stick the tape with thumb pressure. Open only about 2" to 4" initially.
  • Again open release paper a little bit & stick adhesive tape on the surface. This will help avoid air bubbles.
  • Stick in such a manner that you do not have to ply off the tape for minor adjustments. In other words stick correctly the very first time.
  • If air bubbles are entrapped remove by rolling a round rod
  • This guide is being submitted for optimum life of the adhesive tapes.
