Description and Features

Product Description 3M 1280 Circuit Plating Tape is a red, puncture resistant polyester film with a blended silicone and rubber adhesive designed to perform well in all phases of masking operations during printed circuit board production and repair, as well as, other high temperature masking and surface protection applications. The unique adhesive reduces adhesive transfer to printed wiring boards. Use in the circuit board fabrication process as a protective masking tape during the electroplating process; the polyester circuit plating tape reduces stretch and recovery of tape and associated uneven stop-off lines.
Applications Masking of many printed wiring boards during solder stripping and precious metal plating of fingers
Splicing of silicone treated papers
Feature 1 Low stretch polyester film for machine, as well as hand application
Feature 2 Polyester backing reduces stretch and recovery of tape and associated uneven stop-off line
Feature 3 Thick adhesive coating reduces undercutting because adhesive helps block out solutions between fingers
Feature 4 Solvent clean up of the board is recommended to facilitate subsequent soldering
Feature 5 Tape generally performs better when no ovens are used to heat tape and boards
Feature 6 Polyethylene tape core instead of cardboard
