Our durable tape is constructed with a clear polypropylene backing reinforced with fiberglass filaments and has a synthetic rubber resin adhesive for a reliable adhesion to a wide range of materials.Scotch® Filament Tape 898 is 6.6 mils thick, has adhesion of 70 oz/in width and elongation at break of 5%. Other applications include combining, pipe bundling, high strength reinforcing, and heavy duty strapping.

One of 3M’s most enduring product constructions since the 1940’s, Scotch® Filament Tape 898 combines instant adhesion, superior cut and abrasion resistance, and 380 lbs./in width tensile strength, making this tape ideal for a range of heavy-duty strapping, bundling and reinforcing applications. Scotch® Filament Tape 898 dispenses without curling for easy, controlled handling. Its multi-layer synthetic-rubber adhesive system prevents delamination while protecting against shearing.

Filament-reinforced tapes and strapping tapes from 3M are high strength, reliable and affordable solutions for product and package integrity. For closing boxes, stabilizing pallets, bundling and reinforcing, securing appliance components during transport and easy-open tear strips, high strength tapes provide important application benefits for manufacturers of piping, metal products, furniture, appliances, automotive parts, sporting goods, and also food and beverage processors.
