The similarities of Silicone Coated Fabrics and PTFE Coated Fabrics are with glass fiber cloth as their base cloth, with good high temperature resistance and corrosion resistance, capable of being made to be conveyors. PTFE Conveyor Belt can be used to food drying conveys. The Silicone Coated Fabrics is with stronger load-bearing ability and can be used in package and architecture field.
The difference is that the surface of PTFE Fabrics is coated with ptfe and the surface of the Silicone Fabrics is coated with silicone. PTFE Coated Fabrics Cloth has excellent release property, abrasion resistance, low friction coefficient and corrosion resistance, and it could keep its original physical form under the temperature of -170℃~+260℃ in the processing. It will not be deformed, and is non-poisonous, odorless and tasteless, which make it applicable for food processing, packaging and other handling fields; the highest temperature Silicone Coated Fabrics could reach is 230℃. It has good insulation characteristic and ageing resistance. It is softer than PTFE cloth and has good non-sticking characteristic. Its surface is not as smooth as that of PTFE cloth, but its both sides could be used. It has three colors--red, white and grey, thus its abrasion resistance is not as good as PTFE Fabrics Cloth. Due to its good insulating property, it could bear high voltage load and can be made into empire cloth, casing pipe and other products.
PTFE Coated Fabrics could not be randomly folded or squeezed, or it will leaves obvious damage traces, however, Silicone Coated Fabrics could. Silicone Coated Fabric has good fire prevention effect and can be made into fire-proof blanket, fire-proof curtain, dust-blocking cloth and other fire-proof materials, as well as blower pipe and other flexible joints which also are known as flexible connectors of nonmetallic compensator; the high-temperature resistance of PTFE Coated Glass Fabric is better than Silicone Coated Fiberglass, so it can be used to make baking sheet,oven liner,etc.
