Scapa FR100 PolyFlex Plus FR Fire Retardant Polyethylene Tape

Scapa FR100 PolyFlex Plus FR Fire Retardant Polyethylene Tape

Product Description

Scapa FR100 PolyFlex Plus FR Fire Retardant Polyethylene Tape is an 8 mils conformable, polyethylene film tape, coated with a synthetic rubber pressure sensitive adhesive and designed to meet the fire test requirements of NFPA 701 standard and ASTM E84 for improved fire retardancy.

Uses & Applications

  • Temporary masking and sealing in safety-critical environments.
  • Hanging, sealing, seaming and patching of Polyethylene sheeting and heavy duty tarpaulins.
  • Protection of a range of materials and surfaces.
  • Multi purpose sealing, bonding and repair within disaster recovery applications.
  • General masking applications where fire safety and identification is a concern.

Features & Benefits

  • Provides a high visibility approved product for FR applications, with unique red stripe appearance allowing ease of identificaton on site.
  • Aggressive adhesive for superior bonding to a range of substrates.
  • Strong and durable for heavy duty protection.
  • Premium rubber based adhesive formulation allows for clean and easy removal after temporary use.
  • Bonds well to different surfaces over a wide temperature range.
  • Available with a straight or serrated edge option for easier tear or straight line application.
  • Excellent strength but flexible for application around awkward shaped objects and angles.
  • Provides a water tight seal and resistance against humidity, over a range of weather conditions.
Made in Canada.

Application Instructions

Application to Surface: Unwind adhesive film or tape and apply the adhesive side to the mounting surface. Apply firm pressure. Recommended application temperature to achieve the best results is 65F (18C) or above. Proper bonding may not occur unless adhesive and surface material are both at 65F (18C) or above. When applying pressure sensitive adhesive films to any surface, be sure that the surface is free from oil or other surface contaminants such as powder, dust, or release agents. Adhesive performance should be carefully checked when used on substrates containing plasticizers.

Scapa FR100 PolyFlex Plus FR Fire Retardant Polyethylene Tape
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.
acrylic
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.
silicone
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
