PSA3243CW is a 50mm x 50 Metre 50 Micron High Temperature Cold Weather Aluminium Foil self adhesive Duct Tape (2.0mils). This self adhesive tape has been specifically designed for closure of high heat flue'; but, may also be used as a heat shield when welding.

The patented adhesive system, makes it ideal for bonding at low and high temperatures; as well as environments of high humidity. Consequently, this foil tape is constructed specifically for use in extreme environments. This tape has been field tested for applications in temperatures as low as -104F (-40C) and stable up to 414F (218C).

The fact this aluminum foil tape is ideal for extreme environments, ensures secure, reliable bonding in all conditions. As well as being secure and reliable, this foil tape continues to self cross-link after application. What this means to you, is that the bond strength increases over time and ensures secure and reliable splices.

Our 'cold start' patented acrylic adhesive is solvent based and flame resistant being class 'O' Certified. This certification means this tape has an added level of protection where limited combustibility is required in high-risk areas.

Thermal conductivity

Our 'cold start' foil range is ideal when heat reflectance and thermal conductivity are required. These products are formulated to protect sensitive components in various applications.

Heat reflectance

Our 'cold start' acrylic foil tapes are perfect for heat shielding in demanding applications. In situ the product will help shield components sensitive to heat.

Good in bad weather

The ultimate in all weather tapes. This tape excels in demanding temperatures from -40C to 120C.

Main features of the 50 Micron Aluminum Foil Tape include:

Solvent based adhesive

As a result of this foil tape being a solvent based adhesive it provides an immediate waterproofing protection after application, even before they have dried. This means rain hitting this foil tape after it has been applied is not a big issue.

Peter Strange

Excellent product. Very heavy foil, easy to apply and sticks firmly to stove pipe. Due to the weight of the tape, it has no tendency to curl round during application and stick to itself. 5 out of 5.

Beverly Cameron-Cook

Hi,I'm very pleased with this product,it's been wrapped around the silicone sealed joints on flue pipes for 4 stoves.It firmed up the pipes considerably and the external pipework has been hit with heavy rain and gales after just a few hours but all stuck nicely.A very good product with lots of possible uses.
