PTFE Coated Fiberglass Tapes, Fabrics & Belts are cost effective materials that provide high performance in a variety of automotive processing applications.

Taconic PTFE Coated Fiberglass Tapes Fabrics Belts Automotive Interior ProductionAutomotive Interior applications such as lamination of headliners, trunk liners and door panels utilize PTFE fabric as well as open mesh belting and heavyweight belting. UHMW and PTFE film tapes are used as anti-squeek & rattle materials throughout the automotive cabin. Heavy weight belts carry extruded plastic, rubber and foam through curing ovens for fabrication into automotive parts such as window gaskets and door moldings.

Taconic Automotive PTFE Coated Fabric Tapes Belts Truck Trailer Scuff Board ProductionTruck/Trailer Scuff Boards also referred to as kick boards, scuff plates or scuff liners, run along the inside wall base of truck bodies and trailers. They provide protection against punctures and impact damage from pallets and forklifts during loading and unloading of cargo thereby increasing the trailer’s service life and reducing maintenance costs. Scuff boards are comprised of a variety of materials including steel, HDPE, composite, corrugated and other materials. Taconic’s Heavy Weight Premium Smooth Fabric acts as a release material for scuff board lamination.

Taconic Automotive PTFE Coated Fabrics Tapes Belts Trailer Side Skirt ProductionTrailer Side Skirts consist of a set of panels that run the length of the trailer to extend it closer to the ground, reportedly providing a 4 to 7 percent fuel savings by minimizing the air flow under the trailer and around the back axle. In addition to the fuel savings, drivers report better tractor-trailer stability in cross-winds with the use of trailer side skirts, and they have been shown to reduce tire spray, which can cause visibility issues for other drivers. Trailer side skirts should be used for box-style trailers that travel long distances at highway speeds. Heavy Weight Premium Smooth Fabric is used as a release sheet in the lamination of aerodynamic truck panel skirts.
