Specially processed film backing will allow taping over fresh paint jobs sooner than paper tapes with less chance of imprint damage. Provides excellent moisture and solvent resistance. Should not be subjected to outdoor exposure. Typical physical and performance characteristics include: thickness: 5.0 mils, adhesion to steel: 37 oz./in. width, tensile strength: 13 lbs./in. width, elongation at break: 720%, temperature use range: Up to 250°F.
