Trust Dunstone Hi-Shrink Tape When the Heat is On

Historically, a variety of low-shrink compaction woven tapes have been used when vulcanizing rubber components. These include cotton strapping and nylon wrap tape. However, more effective materials are needed to help reduce costs and maximize the use of steam autoclaves. This is where a rubber vulcanized tape comes into play — and where the Hi-Shrink Tape solutions from Dunstone excel.

Dunstone is a leading developer and supplier of a full portfolio of Hi-Shrink Tape products designed to consolidate and compress rubber in high-temperature applications. In particular, our 100 Series and 200 Series lines of Hi-Shrink vulcanized rubber tape serve these applications well. And to ensure that the resulting part is void-free and has the proper surface finish, many of these tapes are available with release coatings. Contact our engineering team today to learn more about our Hi-Shrink Tape products and to discuss your application.
