Product Description

Patco 5560 Removable Protective Film Tape combines a moderate tack, low adhesion acrylic adhesive with a conformable, durable polyethylene film backing that won't damage or leave residue on most surfaces. It's suitable for general protective masking on glass, metals and plastics that must be temporarily protected during assembly or shipping. It's highly conformable and is resistant to abrasion, solvents and moisture. It can be easily and cleanly removed. Patco 5560 removable tape provides just enough tack to remain adhered during a transfer process, yet since it's slightly less adhesive than blue painters tape, it is easily removable without leaving any sticky residue.

Product Applications

  • Mask metal, glass or plastic during assembly or shipping
  • Keep printer touchscreen free of smudges and oils
  • Protect handmade jewelry during shipping
  • Add protective cover to expensive keyboards
  • Keep surfaces free of scratches during home improvement projects

Note: Patco 5560 is the same product as Patco 5540. The different numbers were used to help Patco differentiate between the auto glass retention market (5540) and the general surface protection market (5560). Also, this product is not a static-cling-only type tape like the discontinued 3M 2112C. This tape is not crystal clear like a book repair tape. It is more transparent to translucent and is designed so end users can easily identify the tape in order to remove it. Country of Origin: United States.

* Multiple cases may be shipped per package in order to minimize the charge for shipping.

Special Order Policies

  • Special orders are non-returnable (and non-cancelable if materials have been already ordered or cut before the cancellation request was received).
  • Special order sizes often ship direct from our supplier so will not arrive together with stocked products.

Special Order Minimums

  • Minimum requirements apply because a size may be non-stock or if special setup is required to cut rolls to your desired custom width.
  • Minimum Quantities: If a particular size has a minimum item requirement, please only order that size in multiples of that minimum (e.g. if the minimum is 12, then use multiples like 12, 24, 36, etc).

Question & Answers

QUESTION: Will this stick to fiberglass?
ANSWER: Patco 5560 will adhere to a fiberglass surface; however it is a very low-adhesive tape designed for temporary protection applications (typically used to protect items when shipped). In comparison a blue painters tape offers almost twice the adhesion. For permanent protection applications a surface guard tape like ISC Helicopter-OG-HD would need to be used.

Fantastic product
Patco 5560 Removable Protective Film Tape
I used for labeling project work like charm, when I remove two week later I remove with no difficulty and no sticky residue left behind. Fantastic !!!
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).
