Boat and tooling tapes manufactured by Hesgon are used in the majority of cases for “wet layup” applications. Our tapes have a fairly open weave to optimize wettability and cure time for the product. To insure maximum compatibility between the glass and resin, Hesgon glass tapes can be supplied with custom finishes.
No. 112 Finish
In this heat cleaning process, the starch and oil binder is almost completely removed from the tape. This treatment is compatible with most all resins and the best adhesion or bond strength with silicone is achieved with this finish. No. 112 is our standard finish and is supplied if no other specific finish is requested.
No. 16 Finish
In this heat cleaning process the organic starch binder is almost completely removed from the tape. A light coating of polyester and epoxy compatible silane finish is added to the tape for superior wet-out performance.
Special constructions and widths are available by request.
Tapes are manufactured in widths of 1/4" (6.4mm) to 12" (304.8mm) and thicknesses of .003" (.08mm) to .025" (.64mm).
