Polyester (PET) Tape with silicone adhesive is a low cost alternative yet efficient surface material for 3D Printing. Polyester tapes offer excellent thermal, abrasion, and chemical resistance while maintaining flexibility. PET Tape with silicone adhesive allows the tape to adhere to tough to stick surfaces and can be removed cleanly with no residuals. PET Tapes provide a smooth dependable surface platform for 3D designs.
Polyester (PET) Tape is also used for high temperature masking tape. Applications include powder coating, spray coating, plating, electro-plating, anodizing, and high temperature splicing tape.
Kapton® (Polyimide) Tape (-100°F to +500°F) is used when temperatures exceed that of Polyester (up to 400°F).
