3M Polyester Tape 8901 is made with strong polyester backing and silicone adhesive, allowing it to be used in applications requiring high-temperatures or adhesion to silicone treated surfaces. This tape family offers a range of backing thickness to accommodate application needs from thin tape for splicing to a thicker, stronger tape for pulling through flashing or multiple layers.

Performance in Demanding Conditions
3M™ Polyester Tape 8901 (PDF, 52.71 Kb) is a thin, conformable polyester tape ideal for masking in high temperature applications and adheres well to silicone coated surfaces. The translucent blue backing is tear resistant. Coated with a silicone adhesive, this tape functions well in 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 also excels in permanent splicing operations on silicone liners, papers and films subject to high temperatures.

With good chemical resistance, this tape works effectively in chemical processes and demanding work conditions, such as anodizing. The pressure sensitive silicone adhesive performs 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
  • Splicing of silicone liners, films and papers
  • Holding parts or vacuum bags during composite bonding operations
  • Masking metal surfaces in acid or caustic chemical milling baths
  • Protective tape reduces scratches during handling and shipping
