4.8 mil Aluminum Foil Tape

General Information
DUCTFOIL 4060 is a 4.8 mil aluminum foil tape consisting of a 3mil high strength dead soft aluminum foil coated with an aggressive solvent-based acrylic adhesive and an easy removable paper liner. Its malleable foil conforms well to irregular and curved surfaces. This tape performs excellently at both low and high temperatures, and can be applied at low temperatures. DUCTFOIL 4060 is used for waterproof sealing, vapor barrier and leak protection, heat reflection/dissipation, and masking in paint stripping and electroplating. DUCTFOIL 4060 is also excellent for die-cutting.

The physical properties listed are typical values and are not to be considered as specifications. Our suggestions for use are based on tests we believe to be reliable. However, the purchaser must carry out their own tests to determine the suitability of the product for their internal use. Information is given in good faith, but without warranty.

It is essential, as with all pressure-sensitive tapes, that the surface to which the tape is applied be clean, dry and free of grease and oil.

Shelf life from date of manufacture is based on the product being stored at 70°F(21°C) / 50% relative humidity out of direct sunlight.

Specification compliance is dynamic and should only be used as a general guide. Always confirm that the tape you are interested in currently complies with all specification requirements. Please verify that the product number that you select is available in the proper size and color to meet your specification.

Choose the surface energy of the exact surface that the adhesive will contact (e.g. if the part was painted metal, paint would be the surface energy).
