What is FluoroGrip® - P(PTFE)

An oxy-fluoropolymer of polytetrafluoroethylene modified to incorporate hydroxyl groups with an acrylic or silicone pressure sensitive adhesive.

Types

FluoroGrip® – P sheets and films are manufactured from virgin grade polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE) resins modified to incorporate hydroxyl groups to create an oxy-fluoropolymer.

The base polymers are molded, sintered and skived to the appropriate thickness. FluoroGrip® – P skived exhibits minimal skive lines and has high tensile and elongation strengths. Both sheet and film are widely used in a number of industries due to the material’s outstanding characteristics, including heat and chemical resistance, dielectric strength, and antistick properties. The softness and flexibility properties create a versatile paint replacement film.

FluoroGrip® – P is available standard with an advanced pressure sensitive adhesive (PSA) of acrylic or high temperature resistant silicone PSA. Special chemical resistant adhesives are available. Consult Integument Technologies for specific material recommendations. FluoroGrip® – P is available with either a single-sided or doublesided surface plasma modification treatment.

Industrial Uses

FluoroGrip® – P film is supplied either in sheet or continuous roll form. The excellent temperature and chemical resistance
make it an ideal material for use in a variety of aggressive chemical and temperature environments. The outstanding chemical and thermal resistance combined with superior elongation properties makes it an excellent candidate for secondary containment liners, and splashand-spill ultra-high-performance paint replacement or as an underlayment to chemical resistant toppings, acid brick and coating systems. Fabricated shapes and contours can be produced via heat sealing and thermoforming.

The superior non-stick surface, chemical resistance, and 300-400˚F (depending upon adhesive) usage temperature make FluoroGrip® – P an ideal release film for linings and exterior ultra-high performance anti-graffiti paint replacement where a “non-stick” surface is desirable or for equipment usage where a low coefficient of friction is desired.

 FluoroGrip® – P with silicone adhesive is the material of choice for lining tanks and process equipment in concentrated ozone environments. Double-sided treatment is especially useful when installations require seams, overlaps or the application of chemical resistant coatings or toppings. The double-sided modification makes it an ideal material for pipe wraps and tapes and immersion linings. The modification also creates a superior surface for use as a chemical and temperature resistant underlayment or membrane where the application of chemical resistant toppings and acid brick permits its use in traffic and secondary containment lining applications.
