    Features: 

    • Best results are attained when applied to a clean, dry surface at temperatures between 60° to 80°F (16° to 27°C).
    • Conformability and dead stretch properties make it ideal for taping or sealing many curved and irregular surfaces.
    • A thick backing makes it ideal for many applications which require abrasion protection.
    • While tape resists most common solvents, care should be taken to avoid ketones, chlorinated hydrocarbons and esters that are found in lacquer thinners, degreasers, etc. which may cause the backing to swell or curl.
    • Avoid using on highly plasticized materials which may result in adhesive softening and potential adhesion failure.
    • Transparent backing allows protection with visibility of the protected area.
    • Transparency allows the tape to be used on colored surfaces without being obvious eliminating the need for color matching tapes.

    Typical Applications: 

    • Protection of parts from abrasion.
    • Masking for electroplating and anodizing.
    • Splicing of wrestling mats and similar type products.
    • Protecting the printing of indoor signage from dirt and abrasion, prolonging its life and readability.
    • Protecting delicate surfaces from wear.
