Bundle and Reinforce

Scotch® Filament Tape 897 is a general-purpose solution for bundling and reinforcing applications. It is designed with an adhesive that provides good initial adhesion and holds well with minimum rub-down. The backing, filaments, and adhesive combine to provide high tensile and shear strength compared to general-purpose tapes. This tape allows for printing and illustrations to be seen through it. It 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
  • Carpet bundling
  • Strapping
  • Box reinforcing and closing
