What is skived PTFE sheet?

Skived PTFE sheet is manufactured from a thin film of virgin polytetrafluoroethylene with a self-adhesive silicone backing and a yellow corrugated liner. The polymer provides excellent resistance to chemicals, very low co-efficient of friction and offers a broad operating temperature.

What is PTFE full form?

polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE), a strong, tough, waxy, nonflammable synthetic resin produced by the polymerization of tetrafluoroethylene.

What is skived mean?

skived; skiving. Definition of skive (Entry 2 of 2) transitive verb. : to cut off (a material, such as leather or rubber) in thin layers or pieces : pare.

What is skived tape?

Skived PTFE tape exhibits good strength, abrasion resistance and low friction. It conforms well to irregular surfaces and offers higher elongation than our high modulus PTFE. These tapes are used widely on printing and duplicating machinery to help paper slide while remaining resistant to chemicals and ink.

What are PTFE products?

Polytetrafluoroethylene or PTFE is the commonly used versatile, high-performance fluoropolymer made up of carbon and fluorine atoms. One of the common applications of this polymer is non-stick coating in kitchen cookware (pans, baking trays etc.), hence, you can easily find this in your kitchen.

What is the PTFE material?

Polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE) is a synthetic fluoropolymer of tetrafluoroethylene. Being hydrophobic, non-wetting, high density and resistant to high temperatures, PTFE is an incredibly versatile material with a wide variety of applications, though it’s perhaps best-known for its non-stick properties.

What is skived plastic?

The term skive is to skim thin layers from a product which in this instance is PTFE to create a thin sheet of film. PTFE is compressed to form a block known as a billet. Once the billet is formed it can then be formed in to a large cylindrical block.
