High Temperature PCB Plating Masking tape is a heat resistant single sided tape used for PCB plate masking. The product is a low adhesion means no residue after removal. It is laminated with PET Release Liner and can be supplied as die cut. Masking tape, also known as sticky tape, is a type of pressure-sensitive tape made of a thin and easy-to-tear paper, and an easily released pressure-sensitive adhesive. It is available in a variety of widths. It is used mainly in painting, to mask off areas that should not be painted. The adhesive is the key element to its usefulness, as it allows the tape to be easily removed without leaving residue or damaging the surface to which it is applied. Masking tape is a variety of adhesive tape that is recommended for the temporary concealment of surfaces not intended for a finishing process. Masking tapes temporarily protect areas from painting, soldering, blasting, spraying, coating, plating, and polishing while these procedures are administered to nearby surfaces. The composition of masking tape depends on the activity for which it is designed. Plating tape is used to protect sensitive components from unwanted deposition of metals during electroplating, or the creation of metal oxide during anodizing. These tapes must withstand acids, chemicals, and extreme temperatures. Masking tape is most of the times made out of a paper-like material. It is very easy to tear, is a little bit flexible and has only one sticky layer. The glue used on the tape is specially designed to be easily removed without any residue, and without affecting sensitive surfaces. Plating Tapes are used for masking of hard chrome plating and anodizing. Our Vinyl Plating Tapes feature a highly conformable PVC carrier with a synthetic rubber adhesive. These products have excellent resistance to aging, acids, alkalies and corrosive chemicals.
