Why ABI Tape's composite moulding tapes
ABI Tape composite moulding tapes are used in the production of composite parts like rotor blades, masts, radar arches, bearings walls, intermediate supports, housings etc.
A typical use of our tapes is to protect (the entering edge/attack side/tip of) the wind mill blades, to protect the upper parts of the wind mill and during the construction of the composite parts of the blades.
The tapes are available in several thicknesses, adhesive systems, colors and other characteristics to be used in the construction of wind mill parts.
Depending on the exact use of the tape, the maximum temperature and pressure, the needed colour, etc. a different tape may be chosen.Mostly the tapes are used to mask bond lines, to avoid or reduce flash (“the spill-over over the resin”), to protect the mould or different layers in the composite moulding process or simply to hold the foils, vacuum bag and films on their place.
