|Availability: Metal detectable PTFE adhesive tape is available ex stock and can be supplied at any width from 3mm up to 500mm wide.|
|Fabric Care: Do not fold or crease when handling and installing. The fabric can eventually discolour in sunlight (turns white), but otherwise is unaffected by biological or chemical agents, heat or cold within its temperature range, or by most areas of the electromagnetic spectrum.|
|The material can be converted to engineering product. Consult our Technical staff for further details. Also available chemically etched one side for proprietary adhesive bonding. Standard etch is silica based, sodium based etch is available on request.|
|PTFE (often incorrectly referred to as Teflon®) begins to soften at 260°C, increasing in wear rate, Somewhat above 300°C fumes are given off and these should not be inhaled. COSHH data is available upon request.|
|Declaration of Compliance for Food Contact Materials|
|This product meets the relevant requirements laid down in the Regulation (EC) No. 10/2011 on plastic materials and articles intended to come into contact with food and in articles 3, 11(5), 15 and 17 of the Regulation (EC) No 1935/2004 on materials and articles intended to come into contact with food, provided that the food contact is limited to the non-adhesive side.|

|Important Storage / Shelf Life and Application Information|
We strongly recommend that Techbelt silicone PSA tapes are stored at room temperature conditions of 21⁰C (70⁰F) and 50% relative humidity and should be protected from direct sunlight and moisture.
|• Shelf Life:|
If stored correctly, these products retain their performance and properties for 6 months from date of manufacture.
The surfaces of the materials to be bonded must be dry and clean. Condensation of moisture on surfaces to be bonded (e. g. when carrying cold objects into a warmer room) must be avoided. The materials to be bonded must be free from dust, grease, oil and separating agents and cleaned if necessary.
For cleaning the surfaces only use a clean cloth and a solvent that is compatible with the materials, e. g. benzines, alcohol, esters or ketones.
