What to keep in mind when applying adhesive tape to glass, wood, and plastic.
Which adhesive tape is specifically suited to which tasks? And what influence do the overall external conditions have on selecting the correct tape?
Selecting the right adhesive tape depends on a number of factors:
The surface that is to be masked must be dry and clear of all dust, oil, and grease in order to ensure sufficient adhesion.
Adhesive tape can be used (applied, removed) within a temperature range from +5 °C (41 °F) to +40 °C (104 °F). Temperatures may be below or above this range while the tape is in place.
If you intend to apply tape at temperatures below +5 °C (41 °F) or above +40 °C (104 °F), special adhesive tapes must be used. If the component that is to be masked is expected to be exposed to substantially higher temperatures (over +60 °C or 140 °F, for instance) while the tape is in place, special measures are needed, including the use of special adhesive tapes (such as those with acrylate adhesive masses), double masking, and the like.
