3M(TM) Super Bond Film Tape 396
Our 3M™ Super Bond Film Tape 396 offers the thin caliper tensile strength of polyester and high immediate holding strength of rubber adhesive for creating butt splices on low surface energy materials such as polyethylene and other difficult-to-adhere-to surfaces. Often referred to as a single-sided adhesive splicing & core starting tape.
  • Polyester backing offers abrasion, chemical and thermal resistance
  • Rubber resin adhesive provides aggressive grab to irregular surfaces
  • Ideal for use on polyethylene and other low surface energy materials
  • Good temperature resistance from 40 degrees to 200 degrees F
  • Often used in butt splicing and core starting applications

Overview

Thin Caliper with Long-Term Strength
The thin caliper and tensile strength of the transparent polyester backing, combined with the quick adhesion and holding power of the rubber resin adhesive, make 3M™ Super Bond Film Tape 396 work well on a wide variety of applications, including repairing and reinforcing high-wear areas of rip-stop nylon, holding polyethylene barrel liners in place, splicing large photographic acetate transparencies and splicing polyester conveyor belts. The tape's polyester backing handles temperatures from 40 degrees to 200 degrees F, and resists chemicals and abrasion for long lasting hold.

When purchasing this tape, consider the overall thickness (backing and adhesive) before making your decision. A small variance can make an important difference in how the tape performs in your application.
