BA 3763 WingSafe Tape is paper-stock, film-reinforced, and top-coated with a superior non-slip coating. BA 3763 is coated on the adhesive side with a high-performance urethane adhesive for consistent stick and clean removability while leaving no residue. Designed to be applied to large areas requiring protection (hulls, wings, decks, etc.) where traffic and equipment could cause dents, scratches, and imperfections.

BA 9853 is a premium polyester tape with a high temperature-resistant silicone adhesive. Due to the high coating weight it ensures a secure bond even to rough or irregular surfaces. The excellent temperature resistance makes it suitable for demanding applications such as masking during powder coating, autoclave bonding operations during composite production, or wave soldering processes. The dark red color ensures tape visibility at first sight and also automatic detection.

BA 1738 is a high performance self-adhering surface protection tape. It has a thicker backing than traditional protective tapes, providing superior scratch resistance from tools and other objects used to repair aircraft. BA 1738 also provides clean removal from many surfaces and coatings while enduring exposure to temperature change, humidity, and UV.

BA 6866 Composite Drill Breakout Tape
BA 6866 is a flexible soft tape with a natural rubber adhesive for strong adhesion to the production surface but clean removal. The tape is configured in either a coin-shape or strip-shape, and mounted on a clear peel-off resin liner. Within the coin or strip, a layer of non-adhesive LDPE adds needed support when thru-drilling cured carbon fiber parts. Reduction of carbon fiber fragmentation at the drilled-hole “breakout” edge is achieved.
*BA 6866 Composite Drill Breakout Tape is configured as a 2” x 2” patch with a 1” OD LDPE circle insert, or as a 2” x 8” patch with a 1” x 6” LDPE insert. Other sizes and configurations available.

BA 8110ESD is manufactured from ESD Polyimide film with a high-temperature silicone adhesive. It is constructed to fill the requirements of a high-performance Thermoplastic (Polyimide Backing Materials). BA 8110ESD is material of choice for gold finger protection during wave solder applications that require reduced electrostatic discharge upon tape removal. BA8110ESD exhibits high tensile strength and conformability, as well as good solvent resistance, excellent dielectric strength and good abrasion resistance.

BA FOD Control Board Kit
Bron Aerotech FOD Control Boards supply individually- shaped, kitted aircraft tape maskants for use in the paint/assembly process. Each kit is custom-designed to meet the build requirements for each ship set. The BA FOD Control Board utilizes a shape-indicated removal process for each maskant to ensure there is no adhesive tape left on the aircraft. Customers utilizing BA FOD Control Boards have realized a significant reduction in FOD/Reject Tags, as well as substantial time savings.
Background and Process:
The Bron Aerotech FOD Control Board is an innovation that combines pre-cut, peel-and-place, full-size maskant decals with the Lean 5S Visual Factory Shadow Board concept.
Using a CAD tool, maskant patterns for a painting or assembly build sequence are identified. Maskant shapes and maskant placement orientations are then condensed to fit onto a neatly designed, hand-held Styrene board containing the maskants. The position of each maskant pattern on the Styrene board mimics each mask decal placement onto the structure being painted or assembled. Visual orientation notes (Forward/Aft, Inboard/Outboard, Up/Down) can be used to further assist a worker to properly place the mask patterns.
Productivity is improved by eliminating the need to hand-mask odd-shapes, and by reduction in hand-fit, tear-and-place mask work. While masking of straight edges is easily facilitated with traditional rolls of masking tape, complex shapes (including circles, 3-D surface edges, hexagons, etc.) require multiple tear-and-place operations.
However, as beneficial as pre-cut, peel-and-place mask patterns may be, the real savings come in de-masking and improved quality.
Following painting, the task of identifying all of the masked surfaces can be a nightmare as everything now appears the same-both the structure and the masking. Where did all the masking go?
Flip the Bron Aerotech FOD Control Board over to reveal the “Shadow Board” visual aid. The technician clearly knows where the maskant patterns are located on the structure thru the mimicking of the FOD Control Board design. The technician then “fills-in” the Shadow Board with the maskant patterns as he peels them off the assembly.
Quality can quickly review the post-paint Shadow Board with all shadow areas filled and approve the FOD check that follows the paint sequence.
