Adhesive backing FEP Teflon film

March 4th, 2012 13 comments

Hi all and again thanks to Ahmet ( from the Yahoo group )for sending a sample to me.
I have tested extensively the Adhesive backing FEP Teflon and am abandoning that
route for now. It seems to have the same problem as straight
polycarbonate/nylon/Polyethylene. It is difficult to separate the resin ( at
least mine )without it actually coming off the glass base. You could be using a
different resin with different results, but for my purposes it does not work.

Cheers!

Questions will be partially answered after 27th and fully after New Years!

New VAT + DuPont Teflon FEP Film

Time to marry these two together.

For now I’m just folding the film in place.

I used some clips and an old ruler to cut two pieces 95mm in length:

and stretched the Teflon Film on top of the glass. It kind of clings to the glass by itself.

Just secured it on two opposite sides:

That is it for now… Later!
