This 3M tan colored masking tape is widely used in many industries including automotive, general industrial, military, construction, and marine.
3M 501+ is a high performance high temperature masking tape for applications requiring high temperatures from industrial paint bake systems. It has a maximum operating temperature of 300 degrees Fahrenheit for up to 30 minutes creating extremely sharp paint lines in room temperature or paint-bake operations.
3M 501+ can be easily die cut and converted into custom formats depending on your needs.
Strouse can slit rolls of masking tape to custom widths and lengths. This provides you with tape in the exact width you need for your task at hand. No excess or waste and no more using rolls that are too large and bulky or too small to get the job done.
This is the process of cutting a wide roll of masking tape into a custom shape or usable part for your process. Parts can be cut into different formats to fit seamlessly into your assembly.
Die cut solutions are great for hand assembly or automated processes but sometimes removing the backing from an adhesive die cut can be difficult. Strouse simplifies this process by adding a tab to the part or extended liners that make it easy to remove the liner and place the adhesive. Liners can also be split backed saving your assembly team the frustration of removing thin liners while saving you time and money in the process.
Strouse die cuts and converts paper tape and flexible materials to solve many different adhesive applications. Our diverse manufacturing capability allows us to provide you the material you need in the exact size, shape, and format required for your design.
