Shurtape PE-100 Temporary Flooring Tape [Discontinued]
Shurtape PE-100 Temporary Flooring Tape is a specialty tape used directly on wood floors with water-based finishes to secure protective coverings and for creating temporary lines & boundaries on gym floor courts. Shurtape PE 100 FloorMate tape comes up clean on a properly prepped/cured wood finish, is conformable enough to create curves, is more durable than paper tapes, removes without tearing or splintering, works for paint masking and is available in two colors (white and black).
Test tape in an inconspicuous area before using. It is for temporary use only. Finish damage is difficult and expensive to repair on wood floors, so assure preparation and finish application are done per finish manufacturer's recommendations. Allow the finish to cure fully before applying tape. Remove the tape slowly prior to 30 days on the floor.

QUESTION: We need gym floor tape to temporarily apply to a floating varnished wooden gym floor. The tape will be applied and left on for three days with a sporting activity taking place. We need it to stick to the floor but not remove the varnish when we remove the tape.
: The only product we sold that would not pull up finish was Shurtape PE-; however, Shurtape discontinued that product and no stock currently remains, unfortunately. JVCC V-36 (see https://www.findtape.com/p140/
) is the least adhesive vinyl product we sell and would be the one designed to remove the cleanest; however, if the finish/wax has recently been applied it could pull up some, unlike the PE-100 which was designed not to. Always best to test first on an inconspicuous part of the floor to see if removes as desired. Thank you.

QUESTION: I was asked to get this tape in White but that does not seem to be an option even though both colors are shown. Can I get it in white? I need 3 rolls of the 2" x 60 yd length. Thank you.
ANSWER: Shurtape has discontinued that product and the only remaining inventory we have left at this point is of the black rolls unfortunately. Thank you.
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).
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 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
