Product Details

Nitto's Hydrogen Detection Tape allows for the visual detection of leak locations by changing color from amber to black when the adhesive comes in contact with hydrogen gas. 

  • Utilize for system start-up, post change-out assurance, or continuous leak detection

  • Detects as low as 1% hydrogen concentration 1

  • Fast acting color-change technology 1

  • Versatile for indoor or outdoor use

  • Permanent color change 2

  • Standard application temperature range -40° C to 100° C (Short-term up to 200° C) 1 , 3 

  • Easy to apply tape and lasts up to 6-months 4

1.  Color-change is influenced by flow rate, temperature, exposure time, and percent concentration of hydrogen gas.
2.  Tape will not return to its original color once adhesive is exposed to hydrogen gas.
3.  For applications outside the standard temperature range, customer is responsible to ensure product meets intended application requirements before approved use. For higher temperature applications, you will need to monitor and change out more frequently. 
4.  It is recommended that tape be replaced after a leak has indicated (and leak location has been properly fixed) or after 6-months to minimize potential adhesive residue build up. 
*Please review Product Data Sheet and Application Manual for additional data and information for your intended project or application(s).

Description: We purchased Nitto tape to detect hydrogen leaks on our first alpha prototype. We applied it at fittings and connections and spotted a leak. This is enormously helpful because it will lead to the successful demonstration of our hydrogen production method. BoMax Hydrogen, LLC has developed a hydrogen production method that operates at ambient temperatures and pressures and uses an inexpensive bio-inspired catalytic material that harvests light to produce green hydrogen.
