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.
Andrew Roberts Inc. is introducing its new Metal Detectable PTFE Tape (MDT).
This product is ideal for food manufacturers who are packaging their products in poly bags or other types of flexible packaging using the heat seal method.
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.

- PTFE Roll Coverings
Better than PTFE spray coating. Better than shrink-fit tubing, Non-stick PTFE roll coverings fight residue build-up on flat surface rolls
- The Orange Tape
Extruded oriented high modulus PTFE tape. Known as “the orange tape”, 2285 is the ideal tape for protecting extrusion and laminating equipment.
- PTFE Coated Aluminum Foil
PTFE coated aluminum foil offers high conformability. Service temperature range from – 100 to +500°F. Available with or without adhesive.
- PTFE Zone Tape
PTFE zone tape is primarily used in applications where it is not desirable for adhesive to come in contact with a heating element.
- Skived PTFE Tape
These tapes are used widely on printing and duplicating machinery to help paper slide while remaining resistant to chemicals and ink.
