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.

QUESTION: Can you remove this tape from a painted surface if needed?
ANSWER: ISC Helicopter-OG-HD tape offers very strong adhesion since designed to adhere well to moving vehicles. It typically removes fine from most powder-coated paints, but ISC recommends testing first on an inconspicuous part of the paint to make sure it removes as desired. Thank you.

QUESTION: What's the flame rating of this polyurethane 14 mil helicopter tape? Is it at least HB?
ANSWER: I don’t believe ISC’s Helicopter-OG-HD tape has any type of flame retardancy rating. They would typically market it like that if it did. You can always inquire with them directly at http://www.racerstape.com/rtc.html though to see if they just don’t include that in their data sheet for the tape.FindTape.com

Perfect Protection
ISC Helicopter-OG-HD Surface Guard Tape [14 mil Heavy Duty Outdoor Grade]

Not just for copter blades
ISC Helicopter-OG-HD Surface Guard Tape [14 mil Heavy Duty Outdoor Grade]
I have a small standup paddle board business and the paddle edges can be damaging to the boards side rails. The tape that is sold as rail tape often removes the finish of the board when removing or is too thin to protect the boards properly. I found this tape 14mil and in various widths perfect for the daily rentals as well as our more delicate race boards.

14 mil Helicopter tape
ISC Helicopter-OG-HD Surface Guard Tape [14 mil Heavy Duty Outdoor Grade]
This tape is used on motorcycle frames (BMW's and Yamaha's). Once stuck to the frame, a helmet lock bracket (I design and produce numerous style custom helmet lock brackets) is then attached to the frame with the tape protecting the frame from marring/scratches. The lock assembly and tape can later be removed with NO DAMAGE to the frame...

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.
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
