Water resistant tape: some examples from PPM full range
Are you looking for a water resistant tape? PPM Industries manufactures and supplies different kinds of waterproof tapes, each aimed at a specific use. In this article, we browse some of the best from our range, highlighting their suggested application, so to help you understand which tape is the best for your needs.
According to their application, we can divide our range of water resistant tapes into three categories:
- Water resistant masking tapes for professional painters
- Water resistant masking tapes for body shop painting
- Water resistant duct tapes for sealing and bundling applications
Let’s take a deeper look.
Water resistant tape for professional painting
Masking tapes are typically made with a paper backing, so it might come as a surprise that some of them are actually water resistant. The secret lays in some special treatments that are performed on the paper backing to increase its resistance to moisture and water-based paints.
PPM 2540 is a water resistant tape specifically made for masking in wet conditions. It features a thick saturated crepe paper backing and excellent holding power. In addition, it guarantees clean removal even in warm and humid environments. It is available in white color, as shown in the picture below.
Water resistant tape for vehicle painting and refinishing
A water resistant tape for the car refinishing sector has to face an additional challenge: besides waterproof properties, it has to guarantee high temperature resistance to keep its hold during the drying cycles. We faced and won this challenge with two of the most advanced masking tapes of our body shop range:
PPM 3610 is water resistant masking tape available in a wide range of colors. It is our top-range product among waterproof high temperature tapes. It can withstand up to 90°C for one hour or 110°C for half an hour, while guaranteeing excellent hold, clean removal and adaptation to different surfaces.
PPM 3410 is a waterproof masking tape with high temperature resistance up to 90°C (194°F) for one hour and 110°C (230°F) for half an hour. The tape is designed to resist moisture and wet environment with precise application and clean removal. The tape is available in the white and yellow color.
Water resistant duct tape for the construction sector
The whole range of PPM duct tapes is water resistant, as they are all made with a Polyethylene synthetic cloth that has naturally waterproof properties. We are proud to introduce three of the strongest and toughest of our duct tapes:
PPM 9061 and PPM 9081 are waterproof duct tapes designed for all-weather and outdoor challenging applications, especially in the building sector. PPM 9081 also guarantees excellent performance at low temperatures (-10°C), once applied. Both the tapes are available in a wide range of colors.
PPM 9092 is a waterproof duct tape with professional features: all-weather resistance, excellent abrasion and traction resistance, strong holding power, good conformability even on rough surfaces, low temperature resistance. This water resistant tape is the perfect ally for outdoor repairs, duct sealing (and other sealing applications) and general bundling. It is available in the silver and black color.
