3M Cloth Tape

The 3M glass white cloth tape is coated with silicone adhesive for many applications requiring high-temperature resistance, high adhesion, and a very firm, abrasion resistant backing. This tape offers protection to surfaces and materials from high temperatures. The tape can withstand intermittent temperatures of up to 288°C or higher. This is dependent on the type and duration of the heat source. It is made from a woven fibreglass backing incorporates a silicone adhesive. This tape is 0.19mm thick, 50mm wide and 55m long.

Features and Benefits

• Elongation at break is 9%
• Tensile strength is 146lbs./in
• Temperature ranges between -54°C and 232°C
• Continuous exposure to temperatures above 450°F (232°C) will gradually degrade the adhesive causing loss of tape adhesion and darken the glass cloth backing
• Strong abrasion resistant backing provides strength for bundling, harnessing, and protection applications requiring high tensile strength
• Silicone adhesive provides good holding power and clean removal across a wide range of temperatures


Cloth-backed tape, often referred to as duct tape or gaffa tape, is highly versatile, with uses in sealing walls in the construction industry, for basic rigging tasks, or for bookbinding and sewing. This type of tape is also sometimes used as masking tapes, and is common around the home, workshop, construction sites or in the garden. This temperature resistant cloth-backed tape is primarily used in the aerospace, automotive, military, roofing, specialty vehicle and shipbuilding industries for fabric splicing, seaming and sealing panels, heavy-duty masking, bundling, holding and harness wrapping.

What is the shelf life of this tape?

These tapes generally have a shelf life of 24 months if stored correctly from the manufacturer's dispatch date.

What is the difference between duct tape, gaffer tape and cloth-backed tape?

The very common and versatile duct tape and gaffa tapes are both types of cloth-backed tape, though they are different in their adhesive and type of backing. Gaffer tape, for example, is a fabric material that is heat resistant and non-reflective with an adhesive that does not leave marks when removed from the surface, and so is suited to temporary applications. As such, it is ideal for theatre and studio applications where subtly, versatility and reliability are needed. Duct tape is a broad term that includes many different steps of material and adhesive, but are typically characterized by a polyethylene film and a rubber-based adhesive. It's strength, cohesion and ability to tear easily means it is suitable for a number of applications where permanence is required.

What are the types of backing materials for cloth tapes?

There are many backing materials available on cloth tapes:

• Fabric/cloth such as cotton is used to improve the tensile strength, heat resistance and electrical resistance. Woven fibres are stronger than non-woven.
• Glass/Fiberglass are reinforced with glass or fibreglass particles. This enhances the heat resistance.
• Plastic/Polymer is protected by a liner in the form of a tape, film or laminate.
• PET/Polyester have a high resistance to solvents and age well.
