BA 8152NL Tape presents a silicone rubber/glass cloth backing coated with an aggressive high-temperature silicone adhesive without a liner. BA 8152NL is used in the plasma spray process – a method of applying thin coatings of metal or high-temperature ceramics to a surface. The coating is sprayed at high pressure and at extreme temperatures. The tape is applied adjacent to areas of parts, which are to be plasma sprayed.
BA 8152NL tape protects these areas both from the grit blasting, which is used as a surface preparation, and from the actual plasma spray coating. The aerospace industry is the prime market for the use of plasma spray tapes, specifically, jet engine manufacturers, overhaul centers, major airline maintenance centers, Air Force Bases and Naval Air Rework Facilities (NARF’S).
