Aluminum Foil Tape Description

 

Aluminum adhesive tape is made by thickness 25um normal aluminum foil backing, coated with synthetic rubber-resin adhesive, protected by an easy-release silicone paper liner. Rubber adhesive is synthetic rubber adhesive systems. Rubber-resin adhesive will be offer good tack and adhesion to a variety of surfaces, but will not perform well in colder temperatures.

The tape’s aluminum foil backing provides a moisture and chemical barrier, making it resistant to water, oils, solvents, and many other chemicals. Due to the reflective nature of aluminum, the tape can be used to reflect heat, light, and radiation, making it useful in insulation applications and heat shielding. Aluminum adhesive tape is easy to apply and can be easily cut to the desired length using scissors or a utility knife. It adheres well to clean and dry surfaces. The aluminum foil tape finds applications in various industries, including construction, HVAC, automotive, aerospace, electronics, and more, where the properties of aluminum foil and adhesion are required.

Tape Applications:

HVAC Systems: Aluminum foil tape is widely used in HVAC systems for sealing joints and connections in ductwork, air handlers, and other components. It helps to prevent air leakage, ensuring efficient operation and maintaining indoor air quality.

Insulation: The tape is commonly used in insulation applications, such as sealing and repairing insulation materials. It provides a moisture barrier and helps to enhance the overall insulation performance by preventing heat transfer and minimizing energy loss.

Vapor Barrier Installation: Aluminum foil tape is utilized in the installation of vapor barriers, including aluminum foil vapor barriers. It helps to seal the seams and joints of the barriers, ensuring an effective barrier against moisture transmission.

Metal Repair and Protection: The tape can be used for repairing and protecting metal surfaces. It provides a strong and durable bond, making it suitable for applications such as patching aluminum sheets, sealing metal seams, and reinforcing metal structures.

Tape Features:

  • Aluminum backing provides excellent reflection of both heat and light.
  • High quality adhesive with super strong adhesion and holding power.
  • Low moisture vapor transmission rate makes AFR2560 an excellent vapor barrier.
  • Service Temperature range from -20℃ to +80℃.
