  • This is what the big manufacturers use

    This tape is definitely not fake, I have tried to burn through it with a soldering iron set to the max temperature where the solder readily crusts and the tape just merely bent under it and was shiny again after wiping.It is worth mentioning that this is the THIN variety of such tape, as seen on connectors in hi-tech electronics. If you want a thicker tape, buy sku.5101 which I also bought.These tapes also have a curiously well-sticking glue making them ideal even for not-so-hot areas, you just can rely on them staying put.
    I will be using this to insulate soldering joints in my future home-made Li-Po battery packs.

  • A must have for a Reprap 3D printer

    posted by marcoda

    This kapton/polyimide tape is the width of the standard 200mm glass used on the Prusa Mendel and other Reprap 3D printers. Leave no lines or tape marks under your prints. PLA adheres very well and comes off easily after it has cooled. I have not tested ABS yet. It has very good adhesive.
    It is almost impossible to get a 100% smooth surface by just sticking it and trying to remove the air bubbles and creases. The best way to apply this size tape on your glass is using the soapy water method. Using a spray bottle with water and dish washing liquid mix, spray the glass and the adhesive side of a piece of the tape that is cut slightly longer then your glass. Place the tape on the glass and move it into the right position then using a squeegee or a credit card squeeze all the water and air bubbles out from under the tape. Let it dry properly before heating it. As it dries the tape might roll on the edges, just stick the edges back down, the stickiness will return when the soapy water dries. Lastly cut the excessive tape from the ends.
    Best value and good quality. Never use multiple strips of tape again.
  • Perfect

    Good quality, good packaging. Does what you'd expect from tape, and does it well. Does not smell white heated to 200c.It's as good as you'd expect from kapton tape, just like the real thing. I have not tried it past 240c, but I expect it to preform equally well.There's really not much else to say.
    What you need for the hotbed of your reprap. Or for rebuilding extruders.I use it on my hotbed and my prints sticks, both PLA and ABS. Forget about hairspray, this stuff is perfect.
    If you need heat-resistant tape, this is it.
  • Good product

    posted by aayala

    Good quality, sticky enough. I use this tape to isolate different electronic components. I tested the resistance to heat using a heat gun, the product supports more than 350 degrees Celsius. Also it was exposed to direct flame and takes very long to burn.
    This tape is not easy to find in my neighborhood, much less at this price. Good buy. Mine came in yellow, as it should be.
    Buy it, it never hurts if you work with electronics.
  • Just like the original

    The tape is just like the original. It's heat resistant and usually used to keep electronic parts in place and insulated. For example it's used in laptops to keep some wires in place or to tape a wireless card so it does not move or cause a short circuit. The original tape is more expensive (even without shipment costs) and even though the item seems to be a copy mine is still labeled Kapton just like the original :-)
    Have a look at the wikipedia site regarding Kapton and you will find answers to all questions regarding this item: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kapton
    Will buy again when I need more.
