Scotch® Filament Tape 897 is a medium strength, general purpose, clear fiberglass-reinforced tape -with a synthetic rubber resin adhesive ideal for medium-duty strapping, bundling and reinforcing. The synthetic rubber resin adhesive provides good adhesion to most surfaces, including a variety of plastics, carpets, natural fibers, and metals.
- Medium-duty, high strength tape for utility bundling, reinforcing and pallet unitizing applications
- Synthetic rubber adhesive bonds easily to most fiberboard, plastics and metal surfaces
- Glass yarn filaments add strength for box closing, bundling and more
- Tape resists nicks, abrasions, moisture and scuffing
- Transparency provides clear visibility of box graphics, printing and illustrations
What makes Scotch® Filament Tape 897 different from other tapes?
Scotch® Filament Tape 897 is unique because it has a clear polypropylene backing that offers good abrasion and moisture resistance. It also features high tensile strength due to its glass filaments, which provide excellent reinforcement for heavy-duty jobs.
Can I use this tape on any surface?
Absolutely! Scotch® Filament Tape 897 can be used on rough or irregular surfaces such as wood, metal, and plastic without worry of peeling or fading. However, we recommend testing a small area first to ensure adhesion.
How long will the adhesive last once applied?
With strong adhesive qualities and great tack, our Scotch® Filament Tape 897 ensures you’ll have years of performance with no loss in quality. To extend the life of your applications even longer store the tape in its original packaging at room temperature away from heat sources.
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
