Metal Detectable PTFE Tape

For years our customers in the food processing industry have asked us if we could supply a metal detectable PTFE-Glass Fabric Adhesive Tape for use on their form-fill-seal machines and other packaging equipment where worn tape can occasionally fall in to a packaged product. It has taken us a few years and many sample constructions but we have finally come up with a tape that will do the job.

There is always a chance that a piece of PTFE-glass tape could fall off the heat sealing equipment due to extended use or wear and find its way into the package. Now with the new #254-MDT tape the affected package can be identified by a metal detector before it gets to the end user.
