HAR ADHESIVE TECHNOLOGIES: Masking/Gasket Tape

May 11, 2010

HAR Adhesive Technologies’ new one-step masking tape products can protect surfaces during a highly abrasive polymer, glass bead or sand blasting process. The tapes were developed using a thick layer of aggressive yet removable rubber based adhesive with no carrier. The thick layer of adhesive (0.100”-0.170”) adheres well to aluminum and metal surfaces, withstands the polymer/glass bead/sand blasting process, and then removes cleanly without additional scraping that can damage an aluminum surface. The product uses a 2 mil clear PET film release liner that can be removed or left on during the blasting process. The clear film liner allows for easy positioning of the tape. The tape may also be formulated as a gasket or assembly tape for difficult to attach surfaces like open cell foam, rubber, wood, fabric, painted surfaces and plastic. Rolls are available 50 ft. long and from 3/8” to 2” wide.
