3M AEROSPACE: Protective Tapes

3M™ polyurethane protective tapes can be used in areas such as lavatories, galleys and doorways to cover the seams in floor panel joints. The flame-retardant tapes can provide a durable moisture barrier with a long service life. The tapes are reportedly constructed of an extremely tough, puncture-resistant thermoplastic elastomer coated with a pressure-sensitive adhesive.

The tapes can provide a durable and flame-resistant barrier that can prevent corrosion damage to aircraft floor systems, and can be installed for a variety of applications, including seam sealing, wide wet area protection, and beam protection. High elongation reportedly gives the tapes excellent conformability, providing effective coverage of contoured areas. Their dual liner construction can provide better productivity and fewer wrinkles or bubbles during application. Furthermore, the transparency of the seam sealing tape can allow for easy visual inspection of floor panel sealants.
