Thermal Spray Coatings are used in both OEM and maintenance applications to enhance the performance of parts in terms of wear, corrosion and / or temperature resistance. Tape masking creates a temporary barrier to prevent the application of a thermal spray coating to a specific area.
Elder Tapes and Rubber Plasma HVOF family of masking tape products provide areas of protection from the effects of grit blasting and thermal spraying. These tapes will prevent the bonding of sprayed materials utilising the combustion or plasma spray methods of coating.
They retain their original physical properties, such as adhesion and dimensional stability, through the stress of thermal spraying. All of the Plasma HVOF masking tapes are highly conformable. They remove easily without breaking or leaving adhesive residue.
