Product Description

Scotch 897 Filament Tape is a medium-strength, general-purpose, clear fiberglass-reinforced tape with a synthetic rubber resin adhesive ideal for medium-duty strapping, bundling and reinforcing. Its synthetic rubber resin adhesive provides good adhesion to most surfaces, including a variety of plastics, fiberboard, carpets, natural fibers, and metals. Designed with an adhesive that provides good initial adhesion and holds well with minimum rub-down, Scotch Filament Tape 897 is a general purpose solution for a variety of bundling and reinforcing applications. The backing, filaments and adhesive combine to provide high tensile and shear strength compared to general purpose tapes. It allows for printing and illustrations to be seen through the tape. This tape 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. A brand of 3M.

Features & Benefits

  • UL recognized 969 file MH26206.
  • Abrasion and moisture resistant; maximizes package performance when exposed to outdoor and humid environments.
  • Allows printing and illustrations to be seen through the tape; clear display of graphics, artwork, and other important messages.
  • Good shear and initial adhesion (hold with minimum rubdown); good holding with minimum amount of tape under wide range application conditions..
  • Good aging; boxes remain closed for long period of time.
  • Less tape needed for applications where high tensile strength is a main requirement.

Uses & Applications

  • Carpet bundling.
  • Strapping.
  • Box reinforcing and closing.
  • General packaging.
Country of Origin: Canada.

3M filament tape review
Scotch 897 Filament Strapping Tape
As with all 3M products.....................AWESOME!
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
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).
