Highly Durable, Tear Resistant Tape

3M's thickest 8900 series tape, 3M™ Polyester Tape 8905 is a highly durable polyester tape that is perfect for masking in high temperature applications. The backing is tear-resistant and translucent blue, making it easy to position. This tape is coated with a silicone adhesive, which makes it ideal for masking for powder coating to provide sharp paint lines. It removes cleanly and in one piece from most surfaces, avoiding slivering and breaking.

This tape works effectively in chemical processes and demanding work conditions, such as anodization, due to its good chemical resistance. The pressure-sensitive silicone adhesive performs well under a broad range of temperatures ranging from -60°F (-50°C) to 400°F (204°C).

Recommended Applications
  • Masking parts for high-temperature powder coat painting
  • Masking metal surfaces in acid or caustic chemical milling baths
  • Flash breaker in metal bonding processes where there's excessive build-up where the epoxy (flash) flows on the tape
  • Protective tape reduces scratches during handling and shipping
  • Provides a good barrier for the separation of dissimilar metals
