3M™ Polyester Film Tape 853 is comprised of strong, thin polyester backing. It features a high shear strength acrylic adhesive that is solvent resistant and produces a reliable bond to a wide variety of substrates. This tape is ideal for applications where solvent exposure is a concern.
Polyester backing provides strength without thickness, making it ideal for splicing and label protection applications
Transparent backing allows visibility of information protected by the tape
Acrylic adhesive is resistant to many solvents including jet engine fuel, hydraulic fluid and lubricating oils
Versatile adhesive sticks to a wide variety of substrates
Thin and Solvent Resistant
Our 3M™ Polyester Film Tape 853 is a transparent 2.2 mil polyester film tape with solvent resistant acrylic adhesive. It is designed to withstand the rigors of processes where exposure to solvents is a concern. This includes many splicing applications, for which this tape is ideally suited because of it is thin but durable design. The backing has a low moisture vapor transmission rate. It is a long term aging, transparent backing that provides visibility through the tape. This protects vital information without obscuring important details. This tape can be qualified to meet Federal Spec. L-T-100 Type 1. It meets flammability requirements of FAR 25.823(a) Appendix F Part I (a)(1)(ii)
High tension splicing application
Critical label protection
Aerospace applications that require FAR flammability rating
Sealing critical area from moisture intrusion
Superior Adhesion with Acrylic
This tape features an acrylic adhesive that adheres immediately on contact to a variety of substrates. Once bonded this adhesive will provide high, secure adhesion for extended periods. This adhesive maintains adhesion in climate and temperature change variations. It is also resistant to many solvents, including jet engine fuel, hydraulic fluid and lubricating oils, making it an ideal choice for applications where solvent resistance is needed.
