PRES-ON: Foam Tapes

March 9, 2011
Two new silicone foam tapes can safely seal and protect outdoor communications, electronics cabinets, HVAC units, and HID lighting enclosures from rain, fine particles, and extreme climates.

Combining the lightness of foam with the sealing power of traditional sponge rubber, S-600 and S-800 silicone foam tapes can safely seal and protect outdoor communications, electronics cabinets, HVAC units, and HID lighting enclosures from rain, fine particles, and extreme climates.

Available in die-cuts, several thicknesses, three colors and lengths up to 60 ft, the medium-density tapes feature either an acrylic (S600) or silicone (S800) pressure-sensitive adhesive on one or two sides. Both tapes reportedly exhibit excellent memory and low stress relaxation qualities, along with resistance to UV light, ozone, and corrosion.
