3M 5490 PTFE Protective Tape, 1/4" x 36 yd x 3.7 Mil, Gray, 36/Case

ID: 3M5490X.25 Mfr ID: 70016054275
Manufactured by: 3M Industrial Adhesives and Tapes
Our extruded film backing resists curling when unwound from the roll and lies flatter than skived PTFE film tapes, creating a more uniform non-skid surface. We developed this tape as a quick and easy solution to reduce friction between moving surfaces. It functions as an anti-stick or easy-release medium where pressure, temperature changes and other factors may create a measure of adhesion. Applying 3M PTFE film tape 5490 can help improve surface movement, eliminate squeaks and rattles and reduce machine noise.

3M PTFE film tape 5490 uses an extruded PTFE film backing. This tape offers an extremely low coefficient of friction which, in combination with a pressure sensitive silicone adhesive, creates a smooth, non-stick surface over a variety of substrates to assist in the movement of materials in many types of lay-flat applications. PTFE is chemical resistant and can be used as a temporary chemical barrier.
