What temperature can aluminum foil tape withstand?

Posted on 04/09/2024


Aluminum Foil Tape Temperature Rating

Aluminum foil tape typically has a temperature rating that can vary depending on the specific product and manufacturer. In general, most aluminum foil tapes have a temperature resistance range of approximately -20°C to 150°C (-4°F to 302°F). Some specialized aluminum foil tapes may have higher temperature resistance for more demanding applications. Adhesive Backing is a crucial factor determining the temperature rating of the entire aluminum foil tape. We have 3 kinds of glue coated with Aluminum foil tape:

Synthetic Rubber Resin adhesive;

Water-based Acrylic adhesive;

Solvent-based Acrylic adhesive;

The different adhesive meet different temperature withstand. The highest temperature can Aluminum foil tape withstand is Solvent-based Acrylic adhesive as below:

Service Temperature

-30℃ to +150℃

-22℉ to +302℉

Applying Temperature

-10℃ to +40℃

+50℉ to +105℉

It's important to note that although aluminum foil tape provides superior heat resistance, it should not be used as a substitute for other insulating materials, especially when exposure to direct sunlight or extreme temperatures is anticipated. For ultimate insulation and protection, it's recommended to use specialized insulating tape or materials specifically designed for high-temperature applications.
