Plastomer Technologies, a specialist in processing PTFE (polytetrafluoroethylene) into a variety of formats for a wide range of applications, has announced the branding of its line of PTFE tapes, fibres, and lube powders under the PLASTOLONTM brand name.
Plastomer has more than three decades of experience in producing PTFE and filled PTFE products that are used throughout many industries for their thermal, dielectric, and chemical resistance properties, resistance to ultra-violet exposure, and low co-efficient of friction.
“By unifying these products under the PLASTOLON banner, it will be easier for us to communicate the common benefits of our products and our production technologies across a wider audience,” says Ken Walker, Vice President and General Manager. “With one common brand name, we will be able to leverage our experience in customized solutions for PTFE films, tapes, and fibres as they apply to all relevant markets.”
PLASTOLON Tapes are a custom solution for high performance insulation in a variety of wire and cable wrapping applications used in aircraft and aerospace construction, as well as coaxial cable dielectric tape for sensitive microwave communications equipment. They provide excellent heat resistance and low smoke characteristics, and allow for uniform wall thickness throughout the wire or cable.
PLASTOLON Fibres provide beneficial performance properties in uses ranging from industrial woven fabrics to sewing thread to self-lubricating bearings and specialty applications. In awning and marine applications, their UV-resistant properties maintain seam strength even in harsh sun-baked environments. The chemically inert properties of PLASTOLON Fibres give them the durability to withstand caustic compounds in wet and dry filtration applications. “Our ability to customize the chemical inertness, high-temperature resistance, lubricity, and denier of PLASTOLON Fibres allows us to satisfy the special industrial applications of our customers,” Walker adds.
