Aerospace Qualified Tapes
Space-qualified specialty tapes are a category of adhesive tapes specifically designed and manufactured for use in aerospace environments. These tapes are subjected to rigorous testing and quality control measures to ensure they can withstand the extreme conditions of space, including vacuum, flammability, radiation, and extreme temperatures. They are used in a variety of space applications where traditional tapes or adhesives may not perform adequately. The tapes are also lightweight to reduce fuel consumption of aircraft and save space.

FRALOCK AEROSPACE TAPES
Kapton® Polyimide Tapes
Kapton® tapes are extremely strong and resistant to extreme temperatures, physical wear, chemicals, and radiation. Used for protecting surfaces from heat electromagnetic interference, and UV radiation, they are extremely bondable with silicone and other materials. A wide selection of Kapton® tapes are available with various conductive properties and thicknesses.
Glass Cloth Tapes
PTFE & FEP (Teflon) Tapes
PTFE Impregnated Glass Cloth Tape
Electrically Conductive Tapes
Mylar is the brand name for tapes that feature backing made from biaxially-oriented polyethylene terephthalate (BoPET), a type of polyester film known for its high tensile strength, chemical stability, and excellent dimensional stability. They are used in many aerospace applications.
EMI/RFI Shielding Tapes
Electrostatic Dissipative Tapes
These tapes are composed of materials composed with two or more layers that are bonded together to create a composite structure with unique properties and characteristics different than each single material. They can be tailored to achieve specific properties in strength, flexibility, thermal and electrical insulation, conductivity, and more.
Silicone Foam and Rubber, Pressure Sensitive Tapes
Silicone foam provides a lightweight, flexible, conformable, and compressible structure with excellent resistance to high and low temperatures weathering, UV radiation, and environmental exposure, and is frequently used for sealing and insulation.
Silicone rubber tapes are resistant to chemicals, temperature and moisture proof, and are used for electrical insulation, vibration dampening, seals, and gaskets.
