1163 Double Coated Tape is a 6.5 mil double coated tape utilizing a 0.5 mil hand-tearable polyester film heavily coated on both sides with 3 mils of an ultra high peel acrylic adhesive system. The heavy adhesive deposition allows for superior bonding and conformability to irregular as well as at surfaces. The special acrylic adhesive, bonds well to most substrates including low surface energy plastics. This product provides excellent U.V. and heat resistance. Super aggressive splicing tape for demanding applications.

Application Techniques

Application Techniques

N/A Bond strength is dependent upon the amount of adhesive-to-surface contact developed. Firm application pressure helps develop better adhesive contact and improves bond strength.

To obtain optimum adhesion, the bonding surfaces must be clean, dry and well unified. Some typical surface cleaning solvents are isopropyl alcohol or heptane.

Ideal tape application temperature range is 70 ºF to 100 ºF (21 ºC to 38 ºC). Initial tape application to surfaces at temperatures below 50 ºF (10 ºC) is not recommended because the adhesive becomes too firm to adhere readily. However, once properly applied, low temperature holding is generally satisfactory.

Note for Application Techniques

N/A Carefully read and follow the manufacturer's precautions and directions for use when using solvents.



N/A Store in original cartons at 70 ºF (21 ºC) and 50 % relative humidity.
