High-Temperature FlameShield   Silicone Rubber Tape
General Information

FlameShieldTM  Pure Silicone Rubber Compression Tape is a self-extinguishing non-flammable tape without an adhesive. 

Tapes meeting MIL-I-46852, A-A-59163 and MIL-I-22444Specifications available. 

Forms an excellent seal that is weather/water/air-tight when wrapped around electrical connections and connectors, cable and wiring splices, hydraulic hose protection sleeves, duct joints and other electro-mechanical devices.

The special silicone formulation of this tape self-fuses (self-amalgamating) when stretched and over-wrapped.  Completely flexible at cold temperatures and can be used to +500ºF / +260ºC continuous exposure.  Does not support combustion and resists heat, flame, welding splatter, molten metals, solder drips, slag, sparks, Ozone, UV light and contamination.  Can be wrapped over oily or wet surfaces and is an excellent emergency repair tape for hoses and pipes.  Used extensively in aviation, marine and industrial maintenance, repair and overhaul operations.
Easy & Clean to Use

FlameShieldTM Pure Silicone Tape incorporates a blue marking stripe along its center, making it easy to over-wrap at 50% when taping long lengths.  The triangular profile of the tape (thickest in the centre and reducing thickness towards each edge) ensures a smooth finish to the installation with minimum ridging.  Easy to remove with a sharp blade while curing or when completely cured and does not leave a gummy or sticky residue the way pressure sensitive adhesive tapes such as standard vinyl electrical tapes or duct tapes do.
Available in 0.5", 0.75",
1.0" and 1.5" wide tape.

Available in .020" and
.040" thickness.

Roll length
432" / 36' / 10.9m of tape.
How to Install FlameShieldä Pure Silicone Tape

Lift off the end of the tape from its backing film and then hold the free end onto what the tape is being installed on.  With your other hand which is holding the remainder of the tape roll, moderately pull or stretch the tape while over-lapping the wrap.  The stretching action activates the special formulation of silicone rubber with the result of the tape self-binding / self-fusing to itself.
Highly Resistant to Harsh Environments

FlameShieldTM Pure Silicone Tape resists fuels, oils, acids, solvents, UV, Ozone, high-heat, flame exposure, molten metal splashes, slag, solder drips & sparks.  The proprietary silicone formulation provides optimal thermal dispersion (high thermal conductivity) and also gives this tape its iron-oxide red colour.
Fusing / Bonding Time

FlameShieldTM Pure Silicone Tape when over-wrapped under tension adheres to itself and fuses, forming a solid protective shield in 24 hours at room temperature or in just 4 hours at  +356ºF / +180ºC.  The tape starts to self-fuse / self-bond as it is used, and can be re-seated if necessary within a few seconds of over-wrapping.  After a few minutes it is usually necessary to remove the tape with a knife.

Many Practical Uses

FlameShieldTM pure silicone tape makes for easy hose and cable bundling, replacing tie-wraps.  Excellent for fixing leaks in piping and hoses.  Makes a good emergency fan belt.  Provides excellent weather protection for outdoor electrical and electronic connections. Great as a first-aid tape to hold splints & bandages in place.
