3M™ Polyester Tape 8992 is a dark green polyester tape with silicone adhesive. Ideal for masking in high temperature applications, the translucent green backing is tear resistant. The silicone adhesive allows this tape to function well in masking for powder coating to provide sharp paint lines. It removes cleanly and in one-piece from most surfaces, avoiding slivering and breaking. With excellent chemical resistance, this tape works effectively in chemical processes and demanding work conditions, such as anodizing. The pressure sensitive silicone adhesive performs under a broad range of temperatures ranging from -60°F (-50°C) to 400°F (204°C).
