SILCA Platinum Rim Tape is the finest Tubeless Conversion (or traditional rim tape replacement) tape on the market featuring a special Adhesive optimized for Carbon and Rough surfaces, resulting in improved sealing on both Aluminum AND Carbon Rims. There are only 2 companies that make these types of tape currently, all of the tapes on the market come from one of the two, so to start, we went to both of them. We were able to quickly baseline the state of things and ask two simple questions: 1. What is the BEST substrate (tape material) you make? 2. Can we optimize the adhesive system to better fill in the carbon surface imperfections while using a system that wants to bond to the mold release? The result of 2 years in the lab, is the finest 'Platinum Grade' substrate currently produced, which is both stronger than other tapes AND has higher elongation at failure (it stretches more before breaking). This rare combination (typically stronger things are more brittle) allowed us to make the tape 25% thinner while keeping the same strength. The thinner, more compliant tape is immediately noticeable on installation as it more easily conforms to even the most complex tire well geometries. Secondly, we apply our Fully Synthetic, Carbon Optimized adhesive 15% thicker than standard tapes which is just enough to allow the adhesive to flow into the deeper crevices on carbon rim surfaces for improved sealing. Best of all, this full-synthetic adhesive is also stronger on both raw and anodized aluminum surfaces.
