Engineered for Optimal Durabllity
Helping liquid packaging board producers run longer.
22 May 2018
The liquid packaging board (LPB) market is stronger than ever. According to Smithers Pira, the liquid packaging board’s total market value is projected to accelerate over $5.8 billion by 2022, an estimated 4.5% growth year over year. Such growth is extremely encouraging, but puts great strain on producers and their production line. To support the growth of this booming market and create greater efficiencies, we developed tesa® 4820 and tesa® 4830. Our new polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE) tapes deliver multi-functional features that provide solutions for belt making and roller wrapping at PE-coaters and laminators.
On average it takes LPB operators 1.5 hrs. to change belts, clean rollers, and adjust the machine. This time consuming tasks disrupts production and decreases total output. We solve these issues by laminating two single-sided PTFE tapes together (adhesive to adhesive). The tapes can then be guided through the machine rollers and spliced at both ends, thereby creating a PTFE belt. Our durable PTFE tapes provide reliable solutions that:
- Prevent extruded polyethylene from sticking to the rollers
- Reduce the frequency of which the cylinder is cleaned
- Minimize down-time through enhanced abrasion resistance
Our PTFE adhesives ensure longer durability and higher mechanical strength in roller wrapping applications. We enable liquid packaging boards to smoothly run through the production process with the use of temperature resistance and easy release PTFE tapes. As a result these tapes provide:
- Long durability
- Temperature resistance up to 250° C
- Easy clean-up due to non-stick PTFE surface
We take pride in obtaining a deep level of understanding into our customers' process and requirements. Decades of experience as one of the world’s leading manufacturers of self-adhesive tape has not only resulted in a comprehensive product assortment. We also focus heavily on customer pain points and continuously strive to solve process needs.
