This company has announced the availability of a one-step masking tape that masks products during extremely hot, highly abrasive high-velocity oxygen-fuel (HVOF) thermal spraying.

DeWAL D-Max is a pressure-sensitive tape tested to temperatures over 1000°F (538°C) and forces greater than Mach II. The backing and construction are proprietary. This product features a backing thickness of 0.028mils (0.635mm) and adhesion of 55 oz./inch.

DeWAL D-Max HVOF tape joins a large family of thermal spray tapes manufactured in DeWAL’s Saunderstown, RI, facility. Free of carbonizing materials, these tapes form protective masks against grit blast, ceramic spraying, plasma spraying and arc spraying.

DeWAL tapes are used by several prominent aircraft engine, automotive, medical and mission-critical manufacturers.  DeWAL thermal spray tapes come in many constructions (both single- and double-ply) and are sometimes die-cut.

D-Max is available in widths from 0.25 to 24.0 inches (6.35mm to 0.61m) in 18-yard (16.5m) lengths. The material is silver-grey in color.

All DeWAL tapes are tested according to ASTM standards and meet RoHS criteria. DeWAL is ISO 9001:2000 registered.
