Aluminum foil tape is a adhesive tape use for HVAC. Different thickness aluminum foil as the backing, coating with different pressure-sensitive adhesive.
The thickness of aluminum foil backing from 18um to 150um. But the actual common thickness is up to 50um. The thicker the aluminum foil is, the higher the tensile strength of the tape becomes.
But the thicker the foil, the more expensive it is. We usually use reinforced foil to increase its tensile strength but not much production costs.
