Single Coated Vinyl Foam Tape

A 62.50 mil. vinyl foam tape featuring 430 acrylic adhesive on a thick silicone liner used for many sealing applications. 4516 is a flexible, black high-density, closed-cell foam tape with a pressure-sensitive adhesive on one side. The liner is applied to the non-adhesive side of the foam so the PVC can be cut to length and applied while leaving the liner in place. 4516 tape belongs to the 4500 series which is a durable and flexible closed-cell vinyl tape family. The 4500 series helps seal out dust, light and moisture when placed under 30% compression. The vinyl family offers excellent aging characteristics and will remain flexible when exposed to elevated temperatures and UV light. 4516 tape also adheres to a variety of substrates, including latex painted wood, lacquered wood, enameled steel, glass, aluminum, stainless steel, acrylic, ABS and PVC (non-plasticized). The tape adhesion is typically satisfactory within 20 minutes and continues to build with additional time. The solvent/ fuel resistance test consists of a visual observation of tape bonded to steel panels and immersed totally in solvent/ fuel for 24 hours.
