Q1: What are aluminium foil tapes?
A1: An aluminum foil tape is made of aluminium foil and coated with acrylic adhesive. It has high peel strength, excellent adhesion and oxidation resistance, good corrosion resistance and good flame resistance. It is available in several types, such as ordinary tapes, conductive tapes, high-peel tapes, reinforced tapes, marine welded tapes, heater-specific tapes, etc.
Q2: What are functions of aluminium foil tapes?
A2: The purity of an aluminium foil roll for tapes are 99.95% and more. This enables a tape to prevent human bodies from EMI and insulate unnecessary voltage. The aluminum foil tape is bonded to the joints of all the aluminum foil composite materials, the sealing of the insulation nail puncture site and the repair of the damaged portion. It is mainly used as the main raw and auxiliary materials for refrigerators and freezers production plants, and is also a must-have raw material for the insulation materials distribution department. It can also be used for steam tube outer wrapping to prevent temperature loss.
Q3: Can an aluminium foil tape be used for pot repairing?
A3: Yes. Completely clean the damaged area of the pot, and no water or oil should be left on the surface. The tape should be pressed flatly on the area.
Q4: Can I use a pot to contain drink water after repairing the pot with aluminium foil tapes?
A4: The main ingredient of the tape is still aluminum. As long as the temperature is not too high (100 degree and less), it’s safe to use. Although some people believe that excessive intake of aluminum might lead to dementia, a small amount of aluminum here does not harm to your health.
Q5: Why do aluminum foil tapes have an insulation function?
A5: The aluminum foil itself does not insulate heat at all. In contrast, it is a good conductor of heat. If you wrap a pipe with an aluminium foil roll, there’s no use at all in heat insulation. You should wrap the pipe with some insulation cotton and then wrap the cotton with aluminum foil. Aluminum foil is actually the conduction of the outside temperature to protect the temperature inside from the outside world.
Q6: How much temperature can aluminum foil tape withstand? Are there any other high temperature and rain withstanding tapes?
A6: Aluminum foil tape is usually aluminum foil plate that can withstand temperatures above 300°. The adhesive tape of the tape generally looks at the specific material, and most of them can withstand high temperatures of about 180°.
Q7: How are the electromagnetic shielding effects of aluminum foil tapes and copper foil tapes? Which type is better?
A7: The shielding effect is the same, but copper tapes are more frequently applied because they gets oxidized less easily and can be welded more easily.
Q8: What is the difference between aluminum foil tape and aluminum foil non-slip tape?
A8: The functions are different. One is for preventing slip and the other for sticking things together.
