PTFE Tape Is Harmful To The Human Body
Jun 15, 2017

PTFE tape is characterized by high strength, high temperature, the normal temperature of 260 degrees. While the surface smooth, anti-stick, bright, resistant to a variety of chemical corrosion.

PTFE tape is widely used in packaging, thermoplastic, composite, sealing heat, electrical and electronic industries. After the fabric reinforced PTFE tape is more with high strength characteristics, can be applied to the sizing machine drum, thermoplastic stripping and other industries, can be used repeatedly, easy to replace.

Good heat resistance (continuous use temperature of 260 ℃ or more), even in the overheated heater can also be safe to use.

Good adhesion, melted packaging film "slag" will not stick to the heater.

Excellent electrical insulation.

Good stability, good durability, easy maintenance

Some time ago there is a non-stick pan carcinogenic argument, because the non-stick pan coated with polytetrafluoroethylene, then we need to discuss the harm of the polytetrafluoroethylene tape on the human body. To discuss the harm of polytetrafluoroethylene tape on the human body, the first analysis of the composition of polytetrafluoroethylene: glass fiber cloth, polytetrafluoroethylene, high temperature silica gel.

Glass fiber cloth in contact with the skin when the skin will itch, but does not have any poison, so the first ingredient first excluded. The most controversial is the polytetrafluoroethylene, also known as PTFE, commonly known as Teflon, which itself is no toxins harm the human body, but in the production process using one of the raw materials of ammonium perfluorooctanoate is considered to have carcinogenic effects, so began to have Controversy. In particular, the Teflon cooking utensils begin to deteriorate after reaching the temperature of 260 ° C and begin to decompose above 350 ° C. These decomposition products may cause symptoms similar to flu, and generally do not reach this temperature in the case of cooking , But the empty cooking utensils placed in the unregulated on a hot stove, often beyond the temperature, so causing damage.

PTFE tape instructions are stated that the maximum temperature of 260 degrees Celsius, the actual use of more than 260 degrees will have an impact on the production line, it is generally not used at 260 degrees Celsius, this also ruled out. The high temperature silica gel is also a substance that does not affect the human body.
