Product Details

3M™ Venture Tape™ Aluminum Foil Tape 1517CW, Natural Aluminum, 99 mm x 50 m

The 3M 1517CW Aluminium foil tape features a pressure sensitive cold weather acrylic adhesive makes it easy to apply with soft aluminium foil backing. Its used for a number of general applications across a broad range of industries. It excels in demanding temperatures and humid applications where other tapes can fail.


The soft aluminium 3M 1517CW Foil Tape dissipates the heat over the surface of the foil backing to reduce heat spots and protects the subject from the effects of high temperatures. The 1517CW tape is capable of withstanding temperatures of 121°C and as low as -40°C without losing any of its fundamental properties. Specially designed for cold conditions as it can adhere and seal at temperatures as low as -23°C.

Benefits of choosing 3M Aluminium Foil Tape

Hot and cold temperature versatility. 3M foil tape works in temperatures to which other tapes can diminish. Performing in cold conditions allows this 3M tape to be a market leader, as other tapes see the adhesive harden and begin to lose sticking strength. On the contrary, extreme heat can melt adhesives of tapes, but not the 3M foil tape making it versatile for most applications.

An Acrylic Adhesive backing. This 3M Aluminium foil tape is coated in a superior acrylic adhesive, which works well in extreme cold and heat conditions. This matters when comparing to most duct tapes that are made with a rubber adhesive. This is then known to delaminate from its backing in these extreme conditions. Other adhesives can offer greater resistance but will lack mechanical strength, poor ageing resistance and UV light.

Longevity of foil tape. This tape is ideally used for electroplating or as a radiation barrier in applications where it needs to be conductive both thermally and electrically. Rubber adhesive provides a strong, resistant from flames, UV light, chemicals and radiation.
