Product information

tesa® 51407

Standard Grade Polyimide Tape

Product description

tesa® 51407 is a standard grade polyimide tape with a silicone adhesive that has been specially developed to provide a solution for applications which require high temperature and chemical resistance. 
tesa® 51407 is used for various applications, especially for wave soldering, thermal insulation and cable wrapping as well as masking during powder-coating processes where the tape enables sharp colour edges and offers excellent paint anchorage. The polyimide tape's silicone adhesive system makes the tape extremely heat-resistant, withstanding extreme temperatures of up to 260°C in continuous applications. tesa® 51407 standard grade polyimide tape is also available in a liner version for die-cuts. Benefits:
  • High temperature resistance (up to 260°C)
  • High chemical resistance and dielectric strength
  • Good conformability, thin backing for sharp paint lines
  • Residue-free removability for masking applications

Main applications

  • High temperature masking, e.g. powder coating, galvanizing
  • Chemical production processes
  • Wave soldering, e.g. during circuit board assembly
  • Electrical and thermal insulation, e.g. wire-or cable-wrapping
  • Masking of 3D printing beds
