What is the carrier of your black masking types? What is the thickness? I would like to use a laser marker (at 1064nm, 10W) for cutting openings of various types in them and use them as masks in exposition of photoresist plates. Another application would be for defining an area of interest on a sample before its inspection by means of various devices - a microscope, a scatterometer, a spectrometer etc. In either case low tack and absolutely no residua after removing the mask is essential. I have had some experience with a low tack black tape for advertising purposes which I use to minimize reflections by the rear side of a photoresist plate. I verified that I can cut the opening with that laser marker. I would like to test your tapes too. I am planning to attend Laser World of ..2019 in Munich. Would it be possible to get sample amounts of the types (some 50-100cm)? Any recommendations which of the types would suit best?

Black Masking Tape
  • 1" (25 mm) and 2" (50 mm) Wide Versions Available
  • Paper-Based Masking Tape for General Purpose or Blackout Applications
  • Aluminum Foil Tape for Total Blackout Applications
  • Can be Torn by Hand and Removed Easily Without Leaving Residue
  • Not Intended for Use in Laser Safety Applications

Thorlabs offers a standard and high-performance black masking tape, as well as an aluminum foil masking tape. All types of tape can be torn by hand, are easy to remove, and do not leave a residue. The T137-1.0 and T137-2.0 black masking tape can be used for general applications. For applications requiring minimal ambient light transmission, the T743-1.0 or T743-2.0 high-performance black masking tape is recommended. For total blackout requirements or high-power applications, we offer the T205-1.0 or T205-2.0 non-reflective, flame-retardant aluminum tape. This foil tape has been tested to withstand up to 10 seconds of exposure from a 20 W, Ø6 mm, 10.6 µm laser beam.

In the photographs shown above, a collimated LED (Item # M530L2-C2) with approximately 170 mW output power was used to illustrate how the T743-2.0 high-performance tape allows very little light transmission as compared to the T137-2.0 standard black masking tape. The table below gives the measured power and percent transmittance when various wavelengths of light were incident upon each type of tape.

  • Tested using the former-generation HRS015 Stabilized HeNe Laser, which has been replaced by the HRS015B.
  • Tested using the LDM850 laser module.

Colored Vinyl Tape

  • 1/2" (12.7 mm) Wide Vinyl Tape
  • 108' (32.9 m) Long Roll
  • Available in Red, Green, or Yellow

Colored rolls of vinyl tape are ideal for color coding fibers cables, electrical cables, tools, and samples. The semi-gloss finish can be written on with permanent marker, and the tape can be used in environments from 40 °F to 170 °F (5 °C to 76 °C), although it is best to apply the tape at room temperature.

Kapton Tape can be used to protect a circuit board during soldering.

Kapton tape is commonly used as a wire and cable wrap as well as to protect electrical components during soldering. It is effective for both hand-soldering and mass soldering applications, such as wave soldering. In the electronics industry, Kapton tape is applied to circuit boards before wave soldering to shield gold fingers from the solder material and prevent unwanted electrical connections. The tape is also easy to trim with a razor blade and can be used as a temporary dust cover for ports in devices.
