Conformable masking tapes optimise surface finishing
13 April 2010
Tesa has released two new masking tapes for surface finishing operations, offering enhanced tensile strength, greater conformability and suitability for die cutting. Developed especially for the jobbing coater sector to mask areas required not to be coated, the tapes are easy to tear, apply and remove. Both tapes offer cost effective performance across a broad spectrum of finishing technologies such as electrostatic powder coating, stove enamelling and other treatments such as anodising and E-coating.
Constructed with PET polyester backings and featuring silicone adhesive systems that can withstand temperatures up to 220degC for 30 mins, the tapes can be removed in one piece without residues and leave a sharply defined edge.
Additionally they are suitable for conversion into die cut discs which are widely used throughout the finishing industry. Custom shapes and formats also can be produced to suit intricate or repetitive masking requirements.
Designed for use on irregular shapes, blue polyester/silicon tape tesa 50650 has a thickness of 55µm which makes it highly conformable. Raising the performance bar for general purpose powder coating tapes is tesa 50600 green polyester/silicone masking tape.
