3M™ Impact Stripping Tape 500 is a green, 33.0 mil/0.80 mm tape made with our specially compounded rubber backing and acrylic adhesive with a silicone film, easy-release paper liner. We engineered this unique tape product for masking and surface protection during dry media blast paint removal, as well as other blasting applications.
The thick rubber backing withstands impact against common media such as aluminum oxide, steel shot, glass bead, and plastic. It effectively protects aircraft skins during stripping plastic media blast paint removal operations. This tape also protects against sandblasting on wood and glass signs. We made it to cut easily, smoothly and cleanly, making it an ideal tape for masking fine details or creating small lettering.
The 1.0 mil paper release liner is coated with a silicone film for easy removal and makes the tape ideal for die cutting applications. With its stand-out color and thick backing, the tape leaves highly visible cut lines. The tape's acrylic adhesive provides a strong bond on many surfaces including metal, wood, and many plastics and has a temperature range from 400 – 120 degrees F/40 – 49 degrees C. The adhesive, along with the rubber backing provide clean, one piece removal.
