Tape (Protection), Kapton
Kapton is a registered trademark of DuPont. Polymide protection tape is a special heat resistant durable adhesive tape. Used for masking selected parts of objects like watch bracelet or watch case surface areas during polishing and buffing to obtain varying finishes. Leaves no residue after removal.
Good for watchmaking and jewellery applications. Conveniently available in various widths and can also be cut to size. Having a strong adhesive backing it will not lift during the polishing process, thus giving a very clean precise edge. It also acts as a heat barrier, minimising the risk of heat discolouration.
