There is a wide range of applications that aluminum foil tapes can be used for due to its versatility. It is widely used in all kinds of industries, from manufacturing to construction. It has even made its way into the aerospace industry.

Aluminum foil tapes provide multiple benefits for a range of industries:

  • A great sealant due to low moisture vapor transmission rate
  • The acrylic adhesive, in combination with the aluminum backing, makes the tape ideal for indoor and outdoor application
  • Excellent reflection of both heat and light, protecting heat-sensitive components
  • Resistant to flame, moisture, UV and chemicals for long-term durability


Aluminum foil tape was first used for packaging during the first World War. Due to the tapes ability to protect the contents from moisture and heat, it was the preferred tape for packaging items for long distances. It is still used today as a preferred choice for securing packages.


Since aluminum foil tape is polymer coated, it is often used for coating electrical cables. It is a great solution for any temperature sensitive electrical material and provides flame resistant security.


Aluminum foil tapes within the construction industry are commonly used for securing and protecting other materials. It can adhere to fiberglass and mineral thermal wood insulation and can be used for repairing roofs and gutters. 


Aluminum foil tape started to become available for commercial use around 1945. Since then, it has been commonly used within the HVAC industry. These tapes are frequently used to seal ductwork because it easily conforms to irregular surfaces.
