An Aggressive and Permanent Hold

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