Kapton® Tape

Kapton® Polyimide Film, 3M™ Tape 5413

This single sided tape consists of a Kapton® polyimide film with a silicone adhesive, compatible with a wide temperature range. Kapton® tape with silicone adhesive exhibits better adhesion to "difficult surfaces", but at the same time the high adhesive film bond greatly reduces adhesive transfer to leave a cleaner surface. This tape can be used in harsh environments and has a specified temperature use range is -75° to +260°C (-100° to +500°F). However, successful applications have been reported in the temperature range of -196° to +400°C (-321° to +752°F). Kapton® film thickness is 1.0mil (0.03mm), total tape thickness with adhesive is 2.7 mil (0.07mm). Standard 76mm (3") plastic core.

Applications are as diverse as tape for elevated temperatures, masking for protection of contacts on printed circuit boards during wave solder or dip solder process, masking during vacuum deposition and positioning tape for cryo applications. Relatively low outgassing in vacuum.

3M Circuit Plating Tape

3M™ Circuit Plating Tape 1280

3M™ 1280 has a red color, 3.6 mil (0.091mm) total thickness and is a polyester film tape with silicone and rubber blend adhesive. This tape is used for printed circuit board masking during electroplating.
It is a low stretch polyester film for machine as well as hand application. Elongation (break or yield) is 125%. Backing thickness is 0.9mil (0.02mm). The polyester backing reduces stretch and recovery of tape and associated uneven “stop-off” line. 3"/76.2mm core size.
A thick adhesive coating reduces undercutting because adhesive helps block out solutions between fingers.
Mask many printed wiring boards during solder stripping and precious metal plating of fingers. This tape can be used for splicing silicone treated papers. This tape generally performs better when no ovens are used to heat tape and boards.
Withstands temperatures from 40° to 170°F (4° to 77°C).
