Name

JUMBOTAPE

JUMBOTAPE (15 m x 19 mm x 0.20 mm). MD. (density: 0.6 g/ cm3). Use as for UNITAPE. Very strong and flexible - ideal for large, coarse or sharp thread (rustproof). Ideal for steam. Economical in use. Pipe diameter: 3/4” - 2½”. Recommended temperature range from -200°C to +160°C. JUMBOTAPE article no. 1000500

USE:

The types of tape described here are applied for the sealing of threaded joints on systems for water, drinking water, compressed air, cooling and steam systems and hydraulic systems. Applicable on all types of materials (iron, metal, plastic, fibre etc.). Thread seal tape is also suitable on systems where heavy hygiene requirements are made (hospitals, food industry etc.)

TECHNICAL PROPERTIES:

The exceptional strenght and high molecular weight of the carbon fibre-fluorine compound provides PTFE-tape series of outstanding qualities. Temperature proofed from -200°C to +260°C depending on tne density of the tape. On installations with a workintemperature higher than 90°C we recommed to use tape with a density of 1g/cm3 or more. PTFE-Tapes are resistant to almost all types of acids, bases, solvents, chemicals etc., however, with the exception of fluorine, some fluoride chemicals and melted alkali metals. Very low coefficient of friction. Non-inflammable (ASTM D-635 og D-470). Non-ageing. High tensile strenght even at low temperatures. Breaking-down resistant, especially, in connection with bending and vibrations. Sound electric insulating power independent of frequency and temperature.

DIRECTIONS FOR USE:

Remove any dirt and metal shavings from the thread before application of PFTE-tape. Put the tape on the thread joint in the direction of inclination of the thread. Apply the tape with an even, firm pull to be tight-fitting about the thread. Dependent on wanted thickness of layer the overlap should be from ½ to ¾ tape width. After assembling of the thread joints you should not disassemble. Dependent on pipe diameters the following type of tape is applied: Up to 25 mm UNITAPE is recommended. From 25 mm to 40 mm MAXITAPE is recommended. From 40 mm 65 mm JUMBOTAPE is recommended. Due to the fact that JUMBOTAPE is extremely flexible, it is ideal for coarse, damaged or sharp pipe threads. For very high pressure installations (e.g. hydraulic systems) thread seal seal tape with a high density is recommended anyhow (e.g. Maxitape). The tape is used alone and without any use of lubricants.

The information above is given on the basis of tests and experiences. However, since we have no knowledge about all details in the final use of the product we recommend a trial installation to ensure that the specification of the product matches the physical demands.
