Due to its unique construction, the edges of the aluminum tape adhere to both sides of the root gap of stainless steel and aluminum pipes, while the adhesive-free area is placed directly over the gap. The adhesive never comes into contact with the weld area during welding, resulting in a clean, contamination-free weld seam. The EZ Zone welding tape is free of halogens and fluorocarbons, and consists of aluminum foil with a thickness of 74 micrometers, which adapts optimally to irregular surfaces and is heat-resistant up to 260 °C.
With the EZ Zone welding tape, the welder can effectively prevent contamination in the weld pool and thus produce more defect-free welds. This advantage made the adhesive tape the standard in the atomic energy sector, the chemical industry, in conventional power plants and in aviation within a very short time.
Contaminant Free Weld
EZ Zone Tape eliminates the worry of adhesive contaminating the weld area when sealing the root gap between pipes because it is composed of two outside adhesive sections, separated by an adhesive-free center “zone”.
Only the adhesive-free “zone” is placed over the weld, therefore the adhesive never comes in contact with the pipe as it is welded; creating a clean, contaminant-free weld.
The “Zone” acts as a centering guide, making correct placement of tape and ensuring no adhesive contamination.
Reduces pipe clean-up time and avoids costly x-rays.
Flexible & Heat Resistant
Malleable aluminum tape easily conform to a number of complex shapes and uneven surfaces including stainless steel and aluminum pipes.
Pressure-sensitive adhesive makes for easy application.
Adhesive portion of aluminum tape withstands temperatures up to 500°F (260°C)
Aluminum foil portion of tape withstands temperatures up to 1100°F (593°C)
High Quality and Safe Components
EZ Zone Tape is free of halogens including fluoride, chloride and bromide as well as chlorofluorocarbon, increasingly important in today’s highly regulated safety environment.
