PRES-ON: Silicone Foam Tapes

December 21, 2011

Combining the lightness of foam with the proven sealing power of traditional sponge rubber, Pres-On S-600 and S-800 silicone foam tapes reportedly seal and protect outdoor communications, electronics cabinets, HVAC units, and HID lighting enclosures from rain, fine particles, and extreme climates. Both tapes are UL recognized for flame retardancy and gasketing.

Available in several thicknesses and 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, and can provide resistance to UV light, ozone, and corrosion.
