General Information

FlameShieldä Mil spec MIL-I-4852 Silicone Tape is a non-flammable self-extinguishing tape without an adhesive specifically designed for military, aviation, industrial & marine use.  MIL-I-46852 tape forms an excellent seal that is weather, water and air-tight when wrapped around electrical connections and connectors, wire & cable splices, hydraulic hose protection sleeves, duct, vent and metal chimney joints and other electro-mechanical devices.  The special silicone formulation of the MIL-I-46852 tape self-fuses (self-amalgamating) when stretched and over-wrapped.  Completely flexible at cold temperatures and can be used to +500ºF / +260ºC continuous exposure.  MIL-I-46852 tape does not support combustion and resists heat, flame, solder drips, slag, sparks, Ozone, UV light and contamination.  Can be wrapped over oily or wet surfaces and is an excellent emergency repair tape.  Used extensively as an aviation and avionics pure silicone tape for bundling wiring and protecting electrical connections and splices.
Easy & Clean to Use

FlameShield™  Silicone Tape incorporates a blue marking stripe along its center, making it easy to over-wrap at 50% when taping long lengths.  The triangular profile of the tape (thickest in the centre and reducing thickness towards each edge) ensures a smooth finish to the installation with minimum ridging.  Easy to remove with a sharp blade while curing or when completely cured and does not leave a gummy or sticky residue the way pressure sensitive adhesive tapes such as standard vinyl electrical tapes or duct tapes do.
Silicone Tape is available
in a 1" / 25mm and
1.5" / 37mm width.
Each roll contains
432" / 36' / 10.9m of tape.
How to Install FlameShield™ Pure Silicone Tape

Lift off the end of the tape from its backing film and then hold the free end onto what the tape is being installed on.  With your other hand which is holding the remainder of the tape roll, moderately pull or stretch the tape while over-lapping the wrap.  The stretching action activates the special formulation of silicone rubber with the result of the tape self-binding / self-fusing to itself.
Silicone Tape is
Self-Fusing / Self-Bonding
and non-flammable.
Highly Resistant to Harsh Environments

FlameShield™ Pure Silicone Tape resists fuels, oils, acids, solvents, UV, Ozone, high-heat, flame exposure, solder drips & sparks.  The proprietary silicone formulation provides optimal thermal dispersion (high thermal conductivity) and also gives this tape its iron-oxide red colour.
Fusing / Bonding Time

FlameShield™ Silicone Tape when over-wrapped under tension adheres to itself and fuses, forming a solid protective shield in 24 hours at room temperature or in just 4 hours at  +356ºF / +180ºC.  The tape starts to self-fuse / self-bond as it is used, and can be re-seated if necessary within a few seconds of over-wrapping.  After a few minutes it is usually necessary to remove the tape with a knife.
Many Practical Uses

FlameShield™ aviation silicone tape makes for easy hose and cable bundling, replacing tie-wraps.  Excellent for fixing leaks in piping and hoses.  Makes a good emergency fan belt.  Provides excellent weather protection for outdoor electrical and electronic connections. Great as a first-aid tape to hold splints & bandages in place.
