DuPont® Teflon® FEP & PFA films are PTFE (Teflon™ fluoroplastic) based films that benefit from the ability to be thermoformed, heat-sealed, plastic-welded or bonded. PFA film is very similar to FEP, except it has a higher melting point of (302C to 310C vs. FEP’s melt range of 260C to 280C). PFA Film is recommended over FEP Film for applications that require superior creep resistance at high temperatures, low-temperature toughness, and a higher flame resistance. PTFE is the most inert of all plastics and complies with USFDA regulations for safe use with food. FEP and PFA films possess superior anti-stick, low friction properties, strength and puncture resistance, chemical & solvent resistance, as well as high dielectric strength (over 7000 volts per mil for 1 mil). No electrical tracking, non-wettable (hydrophobic), non-flammable, non-charring and long term weatherabilliy. CS Hyde FEP & PFA films offer superior reliability & retention of properties over large areas. FEP films meet the requirements of ASTM D-3368.

CS Hyde Company now offers two types of high performance polycarbonate film with adhesive; type GG (gloss/gloss surface) and type VM (Velvet/Matte surface). Polycarbonate films have exceptional impact strength, weatherability and thermoformability. With higher strength than acrylic and better dimensional stability than Mylar®, our polycarbonate film is a great all around high performace material. Available in .010", .015", and .020" thicknesses.
This tape offers a secure bonding result under high temperature conditions as well as good resistance to solvents, chemicals, UV and heat. It also possesses excellent bonding characteristics to low-energy surfaces and substrates. Hi-Stick tape has excellent plasticizer migration resistance. Its temperature range is -22F to 356F (-30C to 180C), and is available in 8 mil thickness.
Polyester (PET) Tape with silicone adhesive is used in high temperature masking. Commonly used in Powder Coating, Spray coating, Plating, Electroplating, Anodizing, and high temperature splicing. Removes cleanly after use. Recommended application temperature to achieve best result is 65F (18C) or above. Proper bonding may not occur unless adhesive and surface material are both at 65F (18C) or above.
Kapton® (Polyimide) Tape (-100F to +500F) is used when temperatures are higher than the temperature range of Polyester.
