Polyester tape is ideal for masking in high temperature applications. The polyester backing is tear resistant. Coated with a silicone adhesive, this tape functions well in masking for powder coating to provide sharp paint lines. It removes cleanly and in one-piece from most surfaces, avoiding slivering and breaking.
Polyester tape are also used as splicing tapes to make a manufacturing process continual, joining the end of a web of material to the beginning of a new web, or roll of material. This helps avoids valuable down time feeding the new roll through the machine or press.
