- ET23816 (2795) is designed to withstand both punishing abrasion of grit blasting and the extreme temperatures/pressures associated with the plasma spray process,
- The adhesive is a high temperature silicone, which allows the product to withstand continuous temperatures up to 260 degrees Celsius, and also prevents tape slippage after application.
- Excellent strength and flexibility, which allows wrapping of complex shapes and minimises wrinkling during the flexing of cables.
- ET23816 is used in the plasma spray process: a method of applying thin coatings of metal or high temperature ceramics to a surface.
- The coating is sprayed at high pressure and at extreme temperatures.
- The tape is applied adjacent to areas of parts, which are to be plasma sprayed,
- ET23816 protect these areas both from grit blasting, which is used as a surface preparation, and from the actual plasma spray coating.
- The aerospace industry us the prime market for the use of plasma spray tapes specifically:
- Jet engine manufacturers
- overhaul centres
- major airline maintenance centres
- Air Force Bases
- Naval Air Rework Facilities. (NARF's)
