MASKING: TAPES, CAPS & PLUGS Scapa launches NEW premium UV resistant temporary protection tape There are many temporary protection tapes in the Industrial market, catering for the varied applications for masking and protection, but when it comes to high value premium materials, a different class of product is required. Step forward, the new Scapa UVX10 135 micron strong and conformable polyethylene (PE) fi lm tape, which takes performance to the next level. Available in either red or white, to allow users the high visibility needed in the working environment, the tape uses a high tack, removable acrylic adhesive to allow excellent adhesion and immediate bonding to a wide range of rough and embossed surfaces, over a range of environmental conditions. Since many premium aluminium profiles or powder coated materials are stored and transported outdoors, UV protection is of paramount importance so that the tape does not limit the lifespan of the product it is protecting. Scapa UVX10 offers up to six months UV resistance, whilst still allowing clean, easy peel from the surfaces adhered to, without leaving residue or eroding or tearing in tough climatic conditions. As a thick and robust film tape, it allows great protection against mechanical damage and humidity and can be applied ether manually or automatically, without any stretching of the PE film. 104 “For over 30 years, Scapa has set the market benchmark in product quality and performance.” Mr. Jewell continued, “Incorporation of such a high level of UV resistance, combined with a superior adhesive and strong and durable product profile, reinforces customer confidence that they continue to work with the highest quality PE tapes available and with a company who is focused on meeting the future, as well as current, demands of the market.” Particularly suitable for masking textured powder coating profiles, as well as aluminium, metal, and window and door materials, Scapa UVX10 can be used with confidence, over a wide range or temporary protection applications. Marketed under the banner of Polyflex Plus, the UVX10 tape is available in a number of standard widths, lengths and formats to satisfy the wide-ranging technical applications that Scapa PE tapes are renowned for and available only through approved Scapa partners.
