Nominal Tape Widths vs Actual Widths

Nominal vs. Actual Widths Zoom In

Tape rolls are cut to standard tape industry metric widths of approx. 24mm per 1-inch of nominal width ordered. As a result ACTUAL tape widths are normally 5% narrower than the NOMINAL width shown in inches. Examples:

  • 1" Nominal width = 15/16" (24mm) Actual width
  • 2" Nominal width = 1-7/8" (48mm) Actual width
  • 3" Nominal width = 2-13/16" (72mm) Actual width

Note that tape rolls are NOT guaranteed to be splice-free.

Product Description

Polyken 345 Premium Self-Wound Aluminum Foil Tape has many uses in aviation, general industrial and OEM industries. This is a heavy-duty dead soft aluminum foil tape that's used for aircraft masking and sealing applications. UL and FAR certified, it acts as a heat shield to minimize heat transfer and provides an effective barrier to moisture, air and corrosion. Polyken 345 Premium Self-Wound tape has a smooth, easy unwind, and because there is no release liner, there's less waste. This aluminum foil tape conforms well to contours and irregular surfaces and bonds to most substrates. Its acrylic adhesive coating is resistant to solvents and performs well in high temperatures. The tape can also be cleanly and easily removed from most surfaces, leaving no residue.

Product Applications

  • Masking and sealing in aircraft
  • Aerospace speed tape
  • Window mask to protect aircraft windshields, canopies and passenger window surfaces from hazing or crazing during paint stripping
  • Heavy-duty vapor barrier sealing for sheet metal, flexible and fiberglass duct systems
  • Insulation patch, seal and repair
  • Composite manufacturing and repair
  • Heat shielding and elimination of "hot" spots in industrial maintenance
  • Condenser and evaporator fastener in appliance and refrigeration industry
  • Masking in paint stripping and electro-plating
  • Diversion trough for wash-off of chemicals and paints during painting and stripping

Specifications:

  • FAR 25.853(a)
  • SAE AMS-T-23397B (supersedes MIL-T-23397A)
  • L-T-80B
  • Tested in accordance with UL 723

Alert Roll Sizes/Widths

Please note that tape rolls are NOT guaranteed to be splice-free. Tape rolls are typically cut to standard tape industry metric-cut sizes - or approx 5% narrower than the nominal size (i.e. 24mm per 1-inch of nominal width ordered).

Please contact us to inquire about pricing for full-cut widths (e.g. a 6 inch roll cut to exactly 152mm instead of 144mm).

Polyken 345 Premium Self-Wound Aluminum Foil Tape [UL / FAR certified]
hot melt rubber (synthetic)
Offers the widest range of application flexibility available. Exhibits excellent processing performance whether manually or automatically applied. Has superior tensile strength, adhesion properties and holding force which ensures consistent, reliable seals. Hot melt adhesive will bond faster to a surface which is referred to as quick-grab or quick-stick. It typically has higher tack (will feel stickier to the touch), but is also softer. It has lower heat resistance, shear resistance, and sometimes UV resistance than an acrylic adhesive. NOTE: it is called hot melt because the adhesive is applied hot by the manufacturer and then hardens as it cools (you do not need to apply heat to the tape yourself).
natural rubber
Properties are similar to that of hot melt rubber, but natural rubber often holds where other adhesives won't (recycled fibers, dust, cold, heat and heavy loads). It provides good overall adhesion and moisture resistance.
acrylic
Offer excellent performance, especially for applications in temperatures less than 40°F and greater then 120°F. It provides excellent clarity, has high shear strength, is usually more permanent/durable even when exposed to moisture, and it ages well over extended periods in fluorescent and sunlight. Since it remains clear for the life of the application and does not yellow over time it is ideal for applications such as sealing white cartons. While it has good initial adhesion it does take 24-48 hours to cure and to achieve its maximum bond strength (has gradual adhesion buildup). Another difference between hot melt rubber and acrylic adhesive is if you fold tape over making the two adhesive sides touch the acrylic adhesive will remain attached to the carrier (e.g. paper, film) while a hot melt adhesive will stick to itself and pull off of the carrier. It is the best choice for clarity, UV resistance and aging characteristics.
silicone
Is great for extreme temperature applications since silicone adhesive can work in continuous operating temperatures from -100°F to 500°F. They also exhibit good chemical resistance, retain electrical properties, and remove cleanly with little or no residue.
zinc oxide
Zinc oxide based adhesive formula is a skin-friendly adhesive which is commonly used on sports medicine tapes.
Thickness, AKA caliper or gauge, refers to the distance from one surface of a tape backing, or adhesive, to the other.
1 mil = 1/1000 of an inch
Examples: 1/16 inch = 62.5 mils; 1/32 inch = 31.25 mils
