Cibo Inoxitape: Shim Stainless Tape
One of the simplest and most innovative ideas for re-creating a simple clean mitre corner finish after welding.
Simply cut a length of Inoxitape, stick it onto the surface of the stainless steel surface and brush over with the Cibo Tex or Combination flap brushes to create a clean and pin-sharp mitre corner finish.
Keep the surface cool and Inoxitape can be re-used mitre after mitre.
What are the advantages of Inoxitape?
Before Inoxitape was developed there were traditionally 2 methods used for trying to create a sharp mitre corner.
1. Multiple layers of masking tape placed across the corner.
- This left a very uneven edge as the tape wore away quickly whilst also smearing glue all around the workpiece.
2. Thicker stainless plate ground to try and create a thinner edge.
- Apart from all the upproductive time taken to try and make a masking plate which then had to be clamped onto the workpiece it was always diffcult to shape it thin enough to leave a clean mitre edge on the workpiece.
Among other benefits when, used in conjunction with the Cibo Time Saving Kit set 1 not only does Inoxitape create a clean pin sharp mitre corner but it also siginficantly reduces the time taken to achieve a professional finish.
Can the Inoxitape be re-used?
Inoxitape uses a PSA double sided tape to fix it to the metal. Keep the workpiece cool when you are using the Inxoitape and you will be able to re-use it multiple times.
Is Inoxitape safe for use on stainless steel?
Yes. Inoxitape is made with 0.15mm shim stainless steel with a psa adhesive on the back which contains no free-iron which could contaminate stainless steel.
Can I use Inoxitape on other metals?
If you need to create a precision mitre satin finish on your metal then you can use Inoxitape. The only question is which wheel or brush you need to use for your particular application.
