Release film - Ideally suited to filament winding applications. Features and Benefits: Tough, flexible heat shrinkable polyester tape with the unique ability to shrink and apply pressure when wrapped around an object and heated. This simple method of applying pressure is employed in many industries. Shrinkage begins around 65°C (149°F), but the tape has been used in applications up to 180°C (356°F). If left unrestrained will shrink by 20% after 15 minutes at 150°C (302°F). The compression force characteristics make it an effective and useful tool for consolidating and compacting advanced composite parts. In addition, the tape can be used effectively for compressing, debulking, shaping, forming and branding various materials. The tape is generally removed after application and is not reusable. The PTFE release coating applied to one side allows for easy removal from various substrates.
