Shurtape Tapes for Bonding: Beginners Guide
Pressure-sensitive tapes have many industrial applications. They're used to secure, seal, and protect everything from ductwork and carpet to sensitive electronics.
There are many different types of industrial tapes used in the aerospace industry. They include duct tapes, masking tapes, double-sided tapes, foil tape, packaging tapes to name a few. While at first glance these products may seem pretty much the same, there are major differences in quality between manufacturers. A tape that may be adequate for securing a section of carpet to the floor of an aircraft may not be any good at sealing a leaking pipe. Using the wrong kind of tape with the wrong kind of bond can spell disaster.
Shurtape Industrial Tapes For Maximum Structural Bonding
The Shurtape brand is one of the most trusted names in the business. Shurtape produces more than 650 types of high-end industrial adhesive tapes designed to deliver maximum performance and extraordinary results. Their products include electrical tapes, HVAC tapes, packaging tapes, and industrial tapes.
Let's take a look at one of these products - Shurtape PC-623. The PC-623 is a nuclear-grade cloth duct tape that is available in two colors, red and yellow. It can be used for a variety of purposes in the construction, operation, and maintenance of nuclear power facilities, including holding to stainless steel pipes, color-coding, and sealing end caps on stainless steel pipes.
The natural rubber adhesive provides an exceptionally strong structural bonding with the surface or part its been applied to. The bonding structures are so secure that the tape is capable of transmitting structural stress without losing structural integrity.
The benefits of using a product like Shurtape’s PC-623 nuclear-grade duct tape include:
Economical nuclear grade cloth duct tape
Bonds easily to metal parts and surfaces
Bonding structures provide excellent structural bonding capabilities
High tensile strength
Easy to apply and remove
Temperature range: 50 F to 200 F
Meets ASME NQA-1, ANSI No. 45.2.2, and NRC Guide 1.38 standards
