An Aggressive and Permanent Hold

Our 3M™ Polyester Film Tape 850 is a high-strength tape that is commonly used for splicing and web applications. The tape features a thin, abrasion-resistant polyester backing that helps to reduce splice failures and resist breakdowns during rough handling and web processing. It is coated with an aggressive pressure-sensitive acrylic adhesive that grabs on contact and holds securely. The tape meets low-caliper requirements to ensure it won't interfere with most machinery. It can withstand a wide temperature range from -60°F/-50°C to 300°F/150°C.
