Provide Traction Over Rollers
Constructed from a tan glass cloth reinforced backing and coated with a pressure-sensitive silicone adhesive, our 3M™ Traction Tape 5401 (PDF, 38 Kb) is an ideal choice for traction applications common in printing processes, such as flexo-printing. This tape helps provide traction for material passing over rollers, while also providing a non-stick surface. The long-lasting, silicone adhesive adheres well to most surfaces and removes cleanly with minimal clean-up. 3M™ Traction Tape 5401 performs in temperatures up to 300°F, allowing it to be used in high-temperature applications.
