Silicones have been used to formulate adhesive products for decades due to their flexibility, temperature cycling resistance, chemical resistance, and wide range of possible material properties. Polyester/Silicone Tape 852RW with polyester film and silicone adhesive is used for PCB solder masking and other high temperature applications. Clear. Abrasion, chemical and thermal resistant higher heat resistance as compared with acrylics Easy and clean removability. Silicone adhesives have the following general characteristics:
• High flexibility (low modulus) at sub-ambient temperature
• Consistent performance over wide temperature range (a reason they work so well with Polyimide Tapes)
• Excellent ageing and UV resistance (a reason they work so well in LED applications)
• High temperature resistance
• Good resistance to polar solvents
Silicone Adhesive Tape is a highly heat resistant plating masking adhesive tape with a thick adhesive layer applied to a polyester film. Sensitive silicone adhesive system. PET2SG polyester tape is a no/low residue tape designed for splicing and masking applications where high initial adhesion is required, but no residue once the tape is removed. LINQTAPE™ PET2SG Series is a high performance, flexible, high temperature resistant polyester tape used in many high temperature applications. For very high temperature applications, polyimide tape should be used, but for applications with temperatures up to 205°C (400°F), PET2SG can be used. These applications include but are not limited to photo splicing, powder coating, anodizing, e-coating and other high temperature masking applications. Bo PET (Biaxially-oriented polyethylene terephthalate) is a polyester film made from stretched polyethylene terephthalate (PET) and is used for its high tensile strength, chemical and dimensional stability, transparency, reflectivity, gas and aroma barrier properties, and electrical insulation.
