3M 8998 Kapton tape Features

  • Dark amber-colored 2.0 mil polyimide backing with 1.2 mils silicone pressure-sensitive adhesive
  • Ideal for high-temperature applications
  • Seals tight on contact peels off clean up to 500°F/260°C
  • Exceptional tensile strength to break through cured paint
  • Excellent thermal, chemical, and abrasion resistance
  • Thin backing for sharp paint line
  • Polyimide films offer excellent thermal, abrasion, and chemical resistance while maintaining their flexibility.
  • Amber color makes tape placement obvious for both application and removal.
  • Thin backing leaves a sharp paint line and some conformability.
  • Silicone adhesives offer high heat resistance compared to many rubber and acrylic adhesives, reducing failure due to softening, oozing, and adhesive transfer.
  • Silicone adhesive removes cleanly from many surfaces.
