Scotch® Bi-Directional Filament Tape 8959 is a tough box-sealing tape with exceptional adhesion that also resists nicks, abrasions, moisture, scuffing, and center seam splitting in both longitudinal and horizontal directions.
Extra security - with filaments down the length and across the width, tape is difficult to hand-tear in any direction
Fiberglass filaments run in bi-directional pattern, providing high tensile strength across the width and length of the tape
Ideal strength for heavy-weight packages and overseas/export packing and shipping
Aggressive adhesive sticks to fiberboard and other substrates
Extreme Tape for Extreme Applications
Designed as a high performance specialty packaging tape, Scotch® Bi-Directional Filament Tape 8959 combines a strong polypropylene backing reinforced with continuous bi-directional glass yarn filaments and a synthetic rubber resin adhesive. Our -duty tape is specifically formulated to provide good adhesion to a wide variety of surfaces, including metal, plastic, and fiberboard. A multi-layer synthetic-rubber adhesive system prevents delamination while protecting the tape from shearing. Scotch Bi-Directional Filament Tape 8959 is an ideal choice for high-strength box reinforcing, heavy-duty sealing, shipping, splicing, and palletizing.
Built for Strength
Scotch Bi-Directional Filament Tape 8959 is reinforced with continuous glass yarns in both the longitudinal and transverse direction along with a biaxially oriented polypropylene backing. The multi-level synthetic-rubber adhesive prevents delamination of fiberglass from backing. Brands, bar codes and other graphics can be read through the translucent tape.
Use fiberglass strapping tapes where strength is critical. It is ideal for securing loads and sealing packages for shipping and handling. Industrial and commercial users include manufacturers and distributors of food and beverages, sporting goods, piping, metal fabrications, automotive parts and furniture. Applications include box closing and sealing, packaging, holding, strapping and general bundling. Apply with a portable hand-held dispenser or stationary definite-length dispenser.
