Our product range comtains a wide range of Low Density PTFE Tape, RELIC WRAP PTFE Packaging, PTFE Thread Seal Tapes, TEXOLON PTFE Sheets and TEXOLON Molded PTFE Sheets
Ideal for microwave and coaxial cable applications Low density (LD) PTFE tape is made from an expanded, pure PTFE designed to achieve low dielectric constant, crush resistance, fast elastic recovery, and high tensile strength for microwave and coaxial cable applications. Besides excellent electrical, thermal and chemical properties, Low density PTFE tape provides reduced signal loss in high performance cables when handling microwave energy in the high frequency (GHz) range. Low density PTFE tape is made through a “stretching” process that results in the product being filled with air, which makes it an excellent insulator for wire and cable where high signal speeds are required. This process also reduces its weight, adding value to aerospace and satellite applications.

Protective Tape & Film for Archival Packaging and Storage RELIC WRAP™ protective PTFE tape & film is the safe way to package, archive, store and transport fine art, books and artifacts. Made in the USA, RELIC WRAP™ is available in three forms to allow for complete flexibility in your packaging needs. PTFE is an optimal material to provide the protective layer nearest to valuable art. It is inert, soft, flexible, temperature resistant to 550°F (288°C), acid-free and will not stick to the objects it is protecting. PTFE is also a thermal insulator. RELIC WRAP™ is completely unaffected by ultraviolet (UV) radiation, incandescent or fluorescent light exposure. It will not rot or support fungus for mildew. RELIC WRAP™ Packaging Film Ideal for filling voids around artifacts that are non-uniform in size, RELIC WRAP™ is also used as a protective layer that can be wrapped around any form of art, providing a nonstick, colorfast, conforming inner layer before additional packaging layers are applied. RELIC WRAP™ Film is available in rolls up to 10” wide, 0.003” thick, and 1, 000 feet in length. Technetics recommends that our PTFE tapes are stored and maintained in a controlled environment and the shelf life shall not exceed five (5) years. A controlled environment shall be clean and temperature at or below 72°F (22°C) with relative humidity not to exceed 50%. In addition, all material must be stored in its original condition and shipping containers. Should this become a concern, please contact us to discuss your specific requirements.
Breaks clean without shredding or warping Our self-lubricating PTFE thread seal tape provides quick, clean, economical sealing of male pipe threads while reducing the risk of contaminations common to liquid and paste sealants. It tears cleanly and seals neatly so you can use less tape on the job. Made In USA At Technetics Group, we manufacture our PTFE thread seal tapes from raw powder to finished product.
High Performance, Unsurpassed Cleanliness and Endless Versatility TEXOLON® PTFE products deliver uncompromising performance and unsurpassed precision for critical applications. Developed and compounded at our in-house facilities, TEXOLON® PTFE products are manufactured under strict quality control standards to ensure exceptional uniformity and consistency in every product. Wide variety of custom fillers available Glass fiber Carbon Graphite Molybdenum disulphide Bronze Various pigments Our manufacturing processes: Auto Compression and Isostatic molding Auto compression molding, also referred to as auto molding, can create a wide variety of shapes and geometries to close tolerances using part ejection, pressure application and automatic cavity fill techniques. This process is not only more cost-effective, but also eliminates stress cracks and related defects compared to traditional machining. Isostatic molding applies pressure to all sides of the molded part (whereas compression molding applies pressure in only one direction) to create highly consistent material properties and bring a part very close to its final shape. Isostatic molding is ideal for forming unusual shapes, such as cups, buckets, tapered sleeves and closed-end cylinders. Your trusted industry partner No matter the process or material configuration you choose, Technetics PTFE & Polymer Solutions is committed to being a reliable, responsive partner, providing unmatched material and application expertise, and delivering products with exceptional purity, cleanliness and quality.
