EZ Zone Tape innovatively offers the perfect solution for preventing weld contamination when sealing the root gap between pipes to retain Argon gas. The welding tape is comprised of two adhesive coated aluminum strips on the outside edges, with an adhesive-free center “Zone.”
The unique design of the aluminum welding tape allows the edges to stick to the area surrounding the root gap on stainless steel and aluminum pipes with the adhesive-free “zone” being placed over the root gap. The adhesive portion of EZ Zone Tape is then prevented from ever coming into contact with the pipe as it is being welded, allowing for a clean and contaminant-free weld.
Halogen and chlorofluorocarbon free, EZ Zone’s 3 mil (75 micron) foil can conform to any irregular surface and is able to withstand temperatures up to 500°F (260°C).
EZ Zone Tape allows a welder to effectively prevent contamination in the weld joint and increase the number of pure finished welds. That is why EZ Zone has become the ideal standard within the nuclear, chemical, power plant, and aerospace industries.
EZ Zone Tape eliminates the worry of adhesive contaminating the weld area when sealing the root gap between pipes because it is composed of two outside adhesive sections, separated by an adhesive-free center “zone”
Only the adhesive-free “zone” is placed over the weld, therefore the adhesive never comes in contact with the pipe as it is welded; creating a clean, contaminant-free weld
The “Zone” acts as a centering guide, making correct placement of tape and ensuring no adhesive contamination
Reduces pipe clean-up time and avoids costly x-rays
Flexible & Heat Resistant
Malleable aluminum tape easily conforms to a number of complex shapes and uneven surfaces including stainless steel and aluminum pipes
Pressure-sensitive adhesive makes for easy application
Adhesive portion of aluminum tape withstands temperatures up to 500°F (260°C)
Aluminum foil portion of tape withstands temperatures up to 1100°F (593°C)
High Quality and Safe Components
EZ Zone Tape is free of halogens including fluoride, chloride and bromide as well as chlorofluorcarbons, increasingly important in today’s highly regulated safety environment
