Tape constructed of red silicone rubber/glass cloth backing with an aggressive high-temperature silicone adhesive. It will withstand grit blast and plasma spray process yet will remove cleanly. It has a higher tack than most other plasma masking tapes which allows it to easily conform to the most complex shapes of the aircraft industry. It provides superior high temperature protection during both grit blasting and plasma metallization operations. This plasma tape for use with thermal spray masking during plasma flame spraying.
