Original Press Release:
Protective Tape for Printed Circuit Fabrication and High Temperature Industrial Masking
Windsor, Connecticut - December 15, 2005... Scapa Industrial introduces Scapa 650, a high temperature masking tape for low static protection of delicate gold plated finger tabs, assembly holes, and components during flux, preheat and soldering processes. The product is also designed for high temperature industrial masking in clean room environments.
Scapa 650 consists of a specially treated paper, single coated with a high performance silicone pressure sensitive adhesive. The masking tape delivers extremely low electrostatic discharge at unwind, eliminating PCB degradation. After processing, the silicone adhesive removes cleanly and easily from the surface without leaving adhesive residue.
During hot air leveling and wave soldering operations, Scapa 650 provides protection against chemical, solvents, solder, and rinse water, offering excellent adhesion to electronic substrates. This product offers a wide operating temperature range and is an economical alternative to polyimide tapes.
