Aluminum tape has various uses in industries such as electrical, HVAC, and construction. Different types of tape are available, including acrylic adhesive, lineless, polymer coated, and fire retardant aluminum glass tape. It is important to store and use the tape correctly.

Aluminum tape, also known as foil tape, has many uses in the electrical, HVAC, and construction industries. It can be used in jobs requiring moisture and chemical resistance, thermal conductivity, flame resistance, heat and light reflection, and weather resistance. Different styles of tape are available, including acrylic adhesive, lineless, polymer coated, and flame retardant aluminum glass tape.

Foil tape with acrylic adhesive is used for vapor sealing in fiberglass duct panels, sheet metal ducts and FSK systems. It is ideal for use in HVAC systems, thanks to its high tack cold weather acrylic adhesive, which helps it adhere well, even in periods of low temperature and high humidity. It performs at its optimum level in temperatures between -40° and 250°F (-4.4° and 121.1°C), with a tensile strength of 21 pounds per inch (9.5 kg by 2.54 cm) of width.

Lineless aluminum tape is used for refrigeration duct bonding, due to its water-based acrylic adhesive and the absence of a liner. It can also be used to join and seal air duct joints and fittings. This tape has a service temperature range of 68° to 248°F (20° to 120°C).

Polymer Coated Tape is used in the construction industry to coat electrical wires. This type of tape is known as shield tape because it is also used to shield communication cables from the elements. It has a strong adhesive and blocks moisture and odors. Thanks to its insulating properties, it is also used in mobile home roof repairs.

Fire Retardant Aluminum Glass Tape contains a solvent based acrylic adhesive, making it water and UV resistant. This type is perfect for wrapping insulating wire, tools, and other high-temperature sensitive materials, thanks to its heat-reflective casing. It has a tensile strength of 135 pounds per inch (61.23 kg by 2.54 cm) and can withstand temperatures between -65° and 600°F (-53.88° and 315.55°C).

All varieties of aluminum tape should be stored under normal conditions of 60° to 80°F (16° to 27°C) with a relative humidity between 40 and 60%. For best performance, it should be used within two years of the date of manufacture. Aluminum tape is to be used only for its intended purpose and has not been evaluated or reviewed for medical use.
