- HIGH THERMAL RESISTANCE: Works in demanding conditions and high temperatures up to 400 °F (204 °C)
- COMES OFF CLEAN: Engineered for tidy, one-piece removal, even after rigorous powder-coat masking
- POLYESTER CONSTRUCTION: Offers excellent thermal and chemical resistance while maintaining flexibility
- SHARP COLOR SEPARATION: Its silicone adhesive and smooth edged backing work together to leave precise, consistent paint lines
- SEE-THROUGH BACKING: Smooth, translucent green backing aids identification and positioning
- TOUGH CONSTRUCTION: Polyester backing is strong enough to break through powder coating and resins during removal
Our 3M™ Polyester Tape 8992 is a general purpose polyester tape that excels in high temperature masking operations such as powder coat painting. Coated with a silicone adhesive, this tape bonds to a variety of difficult surfaces. It is chemical resistant and performs under a wide range of temperatures and environments.
Mask in High Temperatures
3M™ Polyester Tape 8992 is a general purpose polyester tape ideal for masking in high temperature applications. The translucent green backing is tear resistant. Coated with a silicone adhesive, this tape functions well in masking for powder coating to provide sharp paint lines. It removes cleanly and in one-piece from most surfaces, avoiding slivering and breaking. This tape is a thicker version of our 3M™ Polyester Tape 8991.
With excellent chemical resistance, this tape works effectively in chemical processes and demanding work conditions, such as anodizing. The pressure sensitive silicone adhesive performs under a broad range of temperatures ranging from -60°F (-50°C) to 400°F (204°C).
