GC-SA7 Aluminum/Glass Cloth Tape
Aluminum/Glass cloth laminate 7.0 mil
A laminate of dead soft Aluminum Foil and Glass Cloth. The glass cloth side is coated with a transparent high temperature silicone adhesive. Conformable, heat resistant and highly reflective, this tape will remove cleanly. Withstands moderate grit blasting. Performs as a plasma or flame spray masking tape. Non-corrosive; flame retardant (will not burn under open flame exposure). Used as a masking tape in plasma spray applications. Prevents build-up of liquid metal on surfaces that must be protected. Used for seaming & repair of heat and flame barrier curtains; protecting/shielding various missile and aircraft components such as control cables, harnesses, fuel lines, etc; securing thermal insulation on heating and ventilation ducts. Adhesion: 67 oz/in. Tensile strength: 72 Ibs/in width. Elongation: 7% Sustained temperature resistance: -100°F to 500°F. Color: Silver. 3 inch plastic core. Specs to T-MIL 83284, ASTM D1000, ASTM 149, JIS Z0237, FAR25853.

Nominal Tape Widths vs Actual Widths
5% narrower than the NOMINAL width shown in inches. Examples:
Tape rolls are cut to standard tape industry metric widths of approx. 24mm per 1-inch of nominal width ordered. As a result ACTUAL tape widths are normally
- 1" Nominal width = 15/16" (24mm) Actual width
- 2" Nominal width = 1-7/8" (48mm) Actual width
- 3" Nominal width = 2-13/16" (72mm) Actual width
Note that tape rolls are NOT guaranteed to be splice-free.
