Glasscloths are the most flexible and conformable backings used for adhesive tapes. Due to the glass fibres in the cloth (an inorganic material), it is non-flammable and high temperature resistant. Glasscloths can be used at a constant temperature of 180°C (356°F), and offers good solvent and chemical resistance. The tensile strength of glasscloth is excellent (almost 6 times than that of 0.025 mm PET). Glasscloth tapes can be used for a wide range of applications; insulation, bandaging, bundling of rolls and transformers, surface protection during powder coating and high temperature masking.
