People have come to expect quality from 3M, and the company has exceeded expectations once again with this Circuit Plating Tape 851. This 2-inch-wide polyester film tape is commonly used in the aerospace and airline industries for masking applications in printed circuit board plating processes, and it is adaptable for other processes as well. When you buy this product from Jaco Aerospace, you will not only benefit from the standard 3M quality but also from our competitive pricing and excellent customer service. Whether you need this tape or any other 3M tape product, you have come to the right place for your purchase of aircraft industry supplies and materials.
The silicone/rubber-blended adhesive used on this 1-mil polyester film tape is designed to make the product easy to apply and remove. Although it is best suited for applications that do not use ovens to heat the tapes or circuit boards, it also can perform well in those situations. You can apply the tape by hand or by machine, which makes it a great choice for smaller operators and manufacturers who may have limited staff and equipment as well as larger entities that regularly make use of machines to do the kind of work for which this tape has been created. Once the 3M Circuit Plating Tape 851 has been laid, however, rubber-covered rollers or a rubber-covered platen press should be used for final application. That way, you will get a clear outline of the circuit leads so that the component can be integrated effectively into the rest of the aircraft or support equipment.
This polyester film tape is translucent green in color, which makes it a good choice for applications where the tape must stand out against a different-colored background or blend into a green surface area. Its 3.6-mil total thickness makes it suitable for placement in even the hardest-to-access areas. All in all, we are confident that you will find that this tape meets your needs.
