Product Description

Scapa 0485 Rubber Adhesive Strip Tape is a very tacky rubber resin transfer tape. Its unique transferable adhesive sticks to almost anything, even when in wet or low-temperature conditions. Also referred to as a Toffee Tape. This double-sided product is an ideal choice for all your general-purpose mounting and bonding applications. Even works great on hard to bond to substrates like glitter paper (see alternative photos to see us trying to remove the invitation from the glitter paper). To remove the tape don't try and ball it up; instead pull on the tape to stretch it out lengthwise away from whatever it is stuck to (removes like 3M Command Tape). Should not be used where good chemical resistance is required though.

Uses & Applications

  • Bonding lightweight wall insulation panels and kickplates.
  • Securing flooring materials such as carpeting, tile and threshold strips.
  • Joining of plastic sheeting and filter membranes.
  • Fixing of edgings, sheeting, signs, and displays.
  • Bonding trim and fabrics during furniture construction.
  • Bonding interior padding in protective headgear.
  • Mounting posters and other lightweight items on walls.

Features & Benefits

  • Easy-to-peel oversized liner (the liner on the tape is extended so there is a 1/4 inch dry ungummed edge at both sides of the tape so the 3/4 inch tape will actually come as 1-1/4 inches since there is a 1/4 inch dry edge at both the top and bottom. The liner color may be either blue or white.
  • Clean, easy to use alternative to brush on adhesives. If want to cut tape with a scissors hold tape very taught when cutting to get a nice clean edge.
  • Very aggressive pressure sensitive adhesive offers excellent bond strength.
  • Non-hardening and permanently flexible.
  • Non-cured (NC) adhesive so it requires no cure time.
  • Solvent free, therefore no fumes.
  • Forms a strong waterproof bond.

Question & Answers

User Reviews

Made in the USA
hot melt rubber (synthetic)
Offers the widest range of application flexibility available. Exhibits excellent processing performance whether manually or automatically applied. Has superior tensile strength, adhesion properties and holding force which ensures consistent, reliable seals. Hot melt adhesive will bond faster to a surface which is referred to as quick-grab or quick-stick. It typically has higher tack (will feel stickier to the touch), but is also softer. It has lower heat resistance, shear resistance, and sometimes UV resistance than an acrylic adhesive. NOTE: it is called hot melt because the adhesive is applied hot by the manufacturer and then hardens as it cools (you do not need to apply heat to the tape yourself).
natural rubber
Properties are similar to that of hot melt rubber, but natural rubber often holds where other adhesives won't (recycled fibers, dust, cold, heat and heavy loads). It provides good overall adhesion and moisture resistance.
Offer excellent performance, especially for applications in temperatures less than 40°F and greater then 120°F. It provides excellent clarity, has high shear strength, is usually more permanent/durable even when exposed to moisture, and it ages well over extended periods in fluorescent and sunlight. Since it remains clear for the life of the application and does not yellow over time it is ideal for applications such as sealing white cartons. While it has good initial adhesion it does take 24-48 hours to cure and to achieve its maximum bond strength (has gradual adhesion buildup). Another difference between hot melt rubber and acrylic adhesive is if you fold tape over making the two adhesive sides touch the acrylic adhesive will remain attached to the carrier (e.g. paper, film) while a hot melt adhesive will stick to itself and pull off of the carrier. It is the best choice for clarity, UV resistance and aging characteristics.
Is great for extreme temperature applications since silicone adhesive can work in continuous operating temperatures from -100°F to 500°F. They also exhibit good chemical resistance, retain electrical properties, and remove cleanly with little or no residue.
zinc oxide
Zinc oxide based adhesive formula is a skin-friendly adhesive which is commonly used on sports medicine tapes.
Thickness, AKA caliper or gauge, refers to the distance from one surface of a tape backing, or adhesive, to the other.
1 mil = 1/1000 of an inch
Examples: 1/16 inch = 62.5 mils; 1/32 inch = 31.25 mils
The cut level indicates how many grams of cutting load a glove can withstand from a sharp blade before being penetrated.
Lower gauge gloves are heavier - have thicker construction, fewer stiches knitted per inch and offer less dexterity.
Higher gauge gloves are lighter - have thinner/finer construction, more stitches knitted per inch and offer more dexterity.
Gloves offered typically runs from 7 to 18 (12 and 13 are in the middle of the scale).
