TEXOLON® Low Density Tapes

Low density PTFE tape – also known as “expanded PTFE” (ePTFE) is made from pure PTFE film that has been expanded (stretched) under specific and tightly controlled conditions to achieve low dielectric constant and high tensile strength.

The result of the stretching process, besides the lower density, is a very low dielectric constant and high tensile strength.

Features & Benefits

  • Clear/Natural
  • Virgin or Modified base resins
  • Standard and Low Shrinkage options available
  • Thickness from 0.0030″ (0.076mm)
  • Widths from 5/32 (4mm) to 5″ (127mm)
  • RoHS/REACH compliant
  • The high mechanical properties helps cable manufacturers to improve efficiency in their production process, by enabling faster wrapping speeds
  • As a binder tape in cable bundles, its low weight and excellent conformability adds minimal mass and volume to the cable construction.
  • The low dielectric constant makes low density PTFE tapes one the best dielectric materials in coaxial cable constructions

Product Applications

  • Dielectric Material in coaxial cables
  • Binder tape in cable constructions and wire harnesses
  • Filter element in radiation detectors
  • Yarns for compression packings
  • Conservation and Archival of artifacts
