A pressure-sensitive masking tape designed primarily for the aircraft industry where resistance to strong solvent / high solids polyurethane-based paints is a necessity. Adhesive is specially formulated to provide excellent adhesion to, and transfer free removal from, a variety of prepared aluminum surfaces. Product is able to support large kraft aprons. It will perform in cycle-bake applications of 140°F for 4-6 hours for up to three cycles. Conformable, extra-strong smooth crepe paper backing provides clean paint break lines and strength for pulling long paint lines with clean, tear-free removal. The release coating is also designed to resist paint flaking upon removal. Not recommended for outdoor use.
Paint masking, either OEM or repair. Allows clean removal from aluminum, primed aluminum, and painted aluminum surfaces even when cycled three or more times.
