HVOF Masking Tapes

High Velocity Oxy Fuel coating process is a high value/high cost method of applying coatings to high value components. Due to the high demands of the HVOF coating process, the masking process is much more complex than masking for other types of thermal spray coating. This family of tapes is a high temperature, silicone rubber coated fiberglass tape with a silicone polymer adhesive.

NEW: HMVT Orange Masking Tape

Features:

  • Highly Flexible Construction- all HVOF masking tapes withstand impact of abrasive grit and the abrasion from carbide spray coatings at supersonic speeds. This allows for faster masking versus the slower process of designing and creating metal masking.
  • Flexible Fabric Construction - PTFE Group offers different grades/thicknesses of HVOF Masking Tape. Thinner tapes offer the highest confirmability making it easier to mask intricate profiles. Thicker tapes offer higher resistance to the temperatures and abrasion of HVOF spray.
  • Flame Retardant - HVOF spraying can sometimes distort the coatings edges of typical thermal spray tapes. PTFE Group HVMT tapes resist burning, allowing for cleaner coating edges with no distortion.
  • Adhesion - The weakness of most thermal spray tapes when masking against HVOF is weak adhesion (to metal and face-to-back). The PTFE Group HVOF Tapes utilize engineerd silicone adhesive that adheres well to metal and has excellent face-to-back adhesion to prevent “flagging”.
  • Cross Over Tape - Engineered for HVOF applications, these tapes are also suitable for Plasma Spray. HVMT Orange is a superior plasma spray masking tape. In all cases, only a single layer of tape will be required to achieve the masking for the more high energy and demanding plasma spray masking jobs. The benefit is faster masking and a great savings of time.
