Product Description

Shurtape CP-901 Steep Pipe Masking Tape is the first high-temperature masking tape in the industry which is designed specifically for steel pipe coating applications. The tape is coated with a solvent rubber adhesive system that is purpose-built to perform at elevated temperatures yielding quick "stick" performance, excellent adhesion to the hot pipes, and easy, residue-free removal (also no charring of the tape). It also has a special cured release system which ensures it adheres well to itself, preventing coating damage caused by loose tape ends. In addition to these important characteristics, CP 901 is also splice free, providing excellent strength while reducing the number of breaks, and it is shear cut resulting in a clean, sharp coating edge. Shurtape's CP 901 steel pipe masking tape is designed to offer optimum performance in the three most important criteria for oil & natural gas steel pipe coating applications: it applies quickly, takes the heat effectively, and removes cleanly.

CP 901 has been field-tested and approved by various pipe coaters using the Fusion Bonded Epoxy (FBE) coating process, which is used by the majority of pipe coaters in North America. It has also been tested and proven in high-speed FBE, as well as the longer duration Fusion Bonded Epoxy and Abrasion Resistant Overcoat (FBE + ARO) process. It can mask powder coating on steel pipes at 450-475 °F for short time durations (1-2 minutes) and up to 350°F for longer time durations. High initial tack on the tape enables quick and secure tabbing onto pipes and its backing prevents corrosion coating from being deposited on the pipe ends.

Question & Answers

User Reviews

Made in the USA
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.
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.
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
The cut level indicates how many grams of cutting load a glove can withstand from a sharp blade before being penetrated.
Lower gauge gloves are heavier - have thicker construction, fewer stiches knitted per inch and offer less dexterity.
Higher gauge gloves are lighter - have thinner/finer construction, more stitches knitted per inch and offer more dexterity.
Gloves offered typically runs from 7 to 18 (12 and 13 are in the middle of the scale).
