EZ Zone Tape innovatively offers the perfect solution for preventing weld contamination when sealing the root gap between pipes to retain Argon gas. The welding tape is comprised of two adhesive coated aluminum strips on the outside edges, with an adhesive-free center “Zone.”

The unique design of the aluminum welding tape allows the edges to stick to the area surrounding the root gap on stainless steel and aluminum pipes with the adhesive-free “zone” being placed over the root gap. The adhesive portion of EZ Zone Tape is then prevented from ever coming into contact with the pipe as it is being welded, allowing for a clean and contaminant-free weld.

Halogen and chlorofluorocarbon free, EZ Zone’s 3 mil (75 micron) foil can conform to any irregular surface and is able to withstand temperatures up to 500°F (260°C).

EZ Zone Tape allows a welder to effectively prevent contamination in the weld joint and increase the number of pure finished welds.  That is why EZ Zone has become the ideal standard within the nuclear, chemical, power plant, and aerospace industries.

Features & Benefits

Contaminant Free Weld

  • EZ Zone Tape eliminates the worry of adhesive contaminating the weld area when sealing the root gap between pipes because it is composed of two outside adhesive sections, separated by an adhesive-free center “zone”

  • Only the adhesive-free “zone” is placed over the weld, therefore the adhesive never comes in contact with the pipe as it is welded; creating a clean, contaminant-free weld

  • The “Zone” acts as a centering guide, making correct placement of tape and ensuring no adhesive contamination

  • Reduces pipe clean-up time and avoids costly x-rays

 

Flexible & Heat Resistant

  • Malleable aluminum tape easily conforms to a number of complex shapes and uneven surfaces including stainless steel and aluminum pipes

  • Pressure-sensitive adhesive makes for easy application

  • Adhesive portion of aluminum tape withstands temperatures up to 500°F (260°C)

  • Aluminum foil portion of tape withstands temperatures up to 1100°F (593°C)

 

 

High Quality and Safe Components

  • EZ Zone Tape is free of halogens including fluoride, chloride and bromide as well as chlorofluorcarbons, increasingly important in today’s highly regulated safety environment

How EZ Zone Tape Works

Clean

  • Clean the weld area of all contaminants

 

 

 

Align

  • Line up adhesive – free section of EZ Zone Tape over the root gap
  • Adhesive sections of the EZ Zone Tape should be secured on each side of the root gap of the adjoining pipes

 

 

Introduce Gas

  • Insert purge gas needle into root gap, ensuring connection to gas line
  • Introduce noble gas, evacuating oxygen
  • Commence welding when desired PPM level is achieved

Contaminate Free Weld

EZ Zone Tape offers the perfect solution for preventing weld contamination.  The welding tape is composed of two aluminum adhesive areas on the outside edges, with an adhesive-free center “Zone”. The unique design of the aluminum welding tape allows the edges to stick to the area surrounding the root gap on stainless steel and aluminum pipes with the adhesive-free “zone” being placed over the weld. The adhesive portion of the tape never comes in contact with the pipe as it is welded, creating a clean, contaminant-free weld.

Pre-heat temperature

The maximum pre-heat temperature of EZ Zone Tape is 500°F (260°C). Please note if applying EZ Zone Tape after the pre-heat temperature is achieved, the adhesive will not bond to the metal surface. In addition, if you apply the EZ Zone Tape before the pre-heat temperature is achieved, the adhesive will “cure” or thermoset to the metal surface and may become difficult to remove.

Minimum Application Temperature

The minimum application temperature for EZ Zone Tape is 10°F (-12.5°C).

Safe Components

EZ Zone Tape is halogen and fluorocarbon-free, creating a safe work environment.

Common Uses

EZ Zone welding tape has become a standard in the nuclear, chemical power plant, aerospace, and many other advanced welding industries.
