BLADE TYPES.

Hultafors tape measures blade types

1. Lacquered steel tape - an impact resistant steel tape covered by an anti-corrosion phosphorous layer that is then painted yellow or white. The scale is protected by a coating of matt polyester lacquer. Can withstand contact with most common solvents, but should not be folded. Also available in stainless steel, making the tape highly resistant to corrosion and wear.

Blade types

2. Nylon coated steel tape - a steel tape covered by an anti-­corrosion phosphorous layer and then painted yellow. The scale is protected by a nylon coated. Treated with an extra thick nylon membrane to make the tape really durable. Withstands contact with the majority of chemicals, solvents and other liquids. Can also be bent, twisted and crushed without any problem.

3. Fibreglass tape - a tape measure made from fibreglass threads cast in plastic. Can withstand contact with the majority of chemicals, moisture, water and temperature fluctuations. A fibreglass tape can be bent, is lighter and more flexible to work with. The tape is non-conductive and is therefore safe to use when working in close proximity to sources of electricity.

4. Stainless steel tape – a premium quality deep etched stainlesssteel blade. Suitable for use in areas where solvents and chemicals are heavily used. (TR range only).
