3M™ Flatback Tape 2517 is a general purpose tape with an easy tear kraft paper backing and a rubber adhesive. It is an excellent choice for applications where strong adhesion, a strong backing and high temperature exposure is required, such as splicing, holding and bundling applications.
Kraft paper baking with strong cross direction tensile properties makes it ideal for tabbing and splicing
Resistant to moist conditions to ensure a lasting hold
Rubber adhesive adheres well to a variety of substrates, including steel
Can be machine dispensed
Can withstand a bake cycle up to 300°F/149°C for up to 30 minutes
Strong and Easy to Tear Our 3M™ Flatback Tape 2517 is a general purpose flatback tape designed for a range of applications. It features a kraft paper backing that is easy to tear while still maintaining strong cross directional tensile properties. A rubber adhesive is mounted to this backing to provide an immediate initial tack to a wide variety of substrates, including steel. Once adhered it provides strong holding power and removes easily. This tape can be machine dispensed. It will perform in moist conditions and in bake cycles up to 300°F/149°C for up to 30 minutes.
