Scope:

This specification establishes the requirements for an expanded polytetrafluoroethylene (EPTFE) in the form of sealing tape requiring no curing.

This tape has been used typically for sealing aircraft access panels, pressure barriers, mold line surface close-out panels where gaskets are required, but usage is not limited to such applications. The tape is resistant to aircraft fuels, fluids an lubricants, and is capable of withstanding long-term exposure from -65 to +450 degrees F (-54 to +232 degress C) with short term exposures up to 600 degrees F (315 degrees C).

Rationale:

AMS-3255 requires updating to include new materials and configurations which are available for use; format and reference changes consistent with other sealant specifications are also to be incorporated.
