Resists Corrosion, Abrasion and Minor Impact Damage
3M™ Polyurethane Protective Tape 8542HS is a matte black, 0.022 inch thermoplastic polyurethane elastomer tape coated with an acrylic adhesive. This long-lasting tape features a tough polyurethane backing that is corrosion, abrasion and minor impact damage resistant. It offers high UV stability and has excellent environmental resistance properties. This tape has been used to isolate and protect substrates from environmental damage and corrosive elements. It can be used in demanding outdoor installations that require minimal UV degradation after years of use. 3M™ Polyurethane Protective Tape 8542HS protects helicopter rotor blades from rain and sand erosion. It is constructed with a solvent resistant, pressure sensitive, acrylic adhesive, protected with an easy-release poly liner.
Adhere with Acrylic
This tape features a pressure sensitive acrylic adhesive that adheres immediately on contact to a variety of substrates. Once bonded this adhesive will provide high, secure adhesion for extended periods. This acrylic adhesive maintains adhesion in climate and temperature change variations and resists yellowing in long term use. When finished, the tape removes easily.
