Shrink Tape 2

Polyester Thermal Compaction Tape

Shrink Tape 2 is a polyester compaction tape that shrinks during a heated cure cycle.  The shrinking action applies pressure to the composite part, increasing part consolidation and reducing void volume.

Shrink Tape 2 can be wrapped around a composite cylinder or mandrel, and secured in place with pressure sensitive tape. Shrink Tape 2 can then withstand a cure cycle between 175°F (79°C) and
400°F (204°C) (see chart below for optimal compaction), and achieves shrinkage in approximately 15-20 minutes. Shrink Tape 2 can come with a combination of options, including: perforated, non-perforated, and/or release coated.
