Calendered Skived PTFE Tapes and Films

Technetics is proud to add to its TEXOLON™ family of tapes and films its CALENDERED SKIVED FILMS (sometimes referred to as “tensilized” PTFE films).

These are premium grade skived PTFE films that have been calendered for enhanced physical, mechanical and electrical properties.

Due to its high tensile strength and modulus of elasticity, the material can withstand high speed and tension during the wrapping/application process.

Its superior electrical properties make this material an excellent choice for medium/high voltage cables and other insulation systems such as electric machines (motors, generators, transformers).

Tapes/Films can be etched on one or both sides for enhanced adhesion properties. It can also be supplied with an adhesive backing.
