Scotch Bi-Directional Filament Tape 8959 is a high strength, general purpose, clear fiberglass-reinforced tape with a synthetic rubber resin adhesive ideal for heavy box closure and cross web splicing. This tape resists center-seam splitting in RSC box closure applications. The synthetic rubber resin adhesive provides high adhesion to most surfaces.

  • Heavy-duty, cross directional, high strength tape for bundling, reinforcing and pallet unitizing applications
  • Bi-directionally fiberglass reinforced tape provides cut and tear resistance in machine direction and cross direction
  • Synthetic rubber adhesive bonds easily to most surfaces with high initial adhesion
  • Transparency provides clear visibility of box graphics, printing and illustrations
  • Able to withstand rough shipping and handling conditions

  1. What is 3M's Scotch® Bi-Directional Filament Tape 8959 made of?

    The Scotch® Bi-Directional Filament Tape 8959 is made up of a polypropylene film backing reinforced with glass yarn filaments that provide great tensile strength.

  2. How much tape do I get in one case of the 3M's Scotch® Bi-Directional Filament Tape 8959?

    Each case of the Scotch® Bi-Directional Filament Tape 8959 contains eighteen rolls per case, where each roll measures approximately fifty millimeters wide and fifty meters long.

  3. Can I see through the tape?

    Yes, you can. Our fabulous Clear version allows users to view graphics or text beneath it easily. It is translucent enough to allow for exacting placement on whatever surfaces it needs to be applied on without obscuring the material underneath.

Bi-Directional Reinforcement for Added Strength

Scotch® Bi-Directional Filament Tape 8959 is designed with continuous fiberglass yarns in both the longitudinal and transverse directions. This construction provides cut edge protection and resists abrasion and splitting. The tape has a synthetic rubber adhesive that provides high initial adhesion and holds well with minimum rub-down on most surfaces. The backing, filaments, and adhesive combine to provide high tensile and shear strength compared to general purpose tapes. Additionally, it allows for printing and illustrations to be seen through the tape. This tape holds under a wide range of application conditions with a minimum amount of tape, leading to lower cost for applications where high tensile strength is a main requirement.

Recommended Applications

  • Heavy box closure
  • Cross web splicing
