Radioactive materials are used regularly in the medical, industrial, and academic communities. When working with these materials, safety must be the number one priority. Employers in these facilities are responsible for clearly posting labels and signage that indicate possible radiation exposure levels in any given area.
NADCO has been a well-known and trusted supplier of labels, tapes, plaques, and signage used to notify people of potential hazards such as radioactive materials. We also offer tapes and various other products that can be used for sealing and radiation leak testing within the nuclear industry.
What Are Some Common Nuclear Tape Applications?
Some industries that rely on nuclear tape include medical, shipbuilding, steel fabrication, nuclear power, and more. It is also commonly used in abatement and remediation applications, where it is used in combination with abatement tapes to create secure containment systems in contaminated areas that must be blocked off.
Nuclear tape is used for sealing, holding, identification, and protection, and it is capable of resisting UV exposure, wear, moisture, and abrasion for up to 12 months. This tape is individually wrapped and manufactured on a plastic core, ensuring a low halogen content and enhanced protection against paper contamination and other residues. It also features a resin adhesive specifically designed for use in nuclear power plants and submarines. This makes it especially useful for sealing, insulation, and wrapping of pipe ends within these environments as well as sealing HVAC metal ductwork, holding signs and labels on stainless steel pipes, sealing end caps, color-coding, and more.
What Are The Benefits Of Using Nuclear Tape?
