Polyester tape for powder-coat masking or bagging in composite bonding

3M Europe : 18 October, 2012  (New Product)
3M has added a high-performance yet cost-effective general purpose polyester tape to its industrial tapes range. Ideal for powder-coat masking or splicing, the new General Purpose Polyester Tape 8995 by 3M can also be used as a flash breaker for adhesive overspill or for bagging in the composite bonding process.

Available in 25 or 50mm widths and coloured blue for recognition, General Purpose Polyester Tape 8995 is a 60 micron tape with a polyester carrier and pressure-sensitive silicone adhesive which gives a tight bond for sharp edge lines. It is flexible and conformable, even round curved edges, with good tensile strength for tearing through cured paint or adhesive coatings. It offers clean removal up to temperatures of 200C.

Kirsty Horsfall of the 3M Industrial Adhesives and Tapes Division explained: “There are times in any industry when you need a quality product at a competitive price and General Purpose Polyester Tape 8995 offers a cost-effective alternative to some of the more specialised tapes. It is ideally suited for high-temperature applications such as flash-breaking in composite bonding, powder coat masking and splicing silicone and non-silicone coated papers.”

Aimed at the aerospace, print and general industrial markets, General Purpose Polyester Tape 8995 is also available in untrimmed logs and boasts competitive lead times.
