The Clearest High-Strength Tape Available
A high-strength strapping tape, Scotch® Reinforced Strapping Tape 863 features a unique polypropylene backing that provides excellent tape strength and clarity. With a total thickness of 5 mil, this strapping tape comes with a tensile strength of 155 lbs./inch. The polypropylene backing, with a monofilament "ribbed" construction, offers excellent resistance to abrasion, moisture, nicks, punctures, tearing and scuffing. This unique polypropylene backing is strong and clear and does not obstruct graphics, product instructions or important marketing content. The versatile, synthetic, rubber resin adhesive is formulated to provide good adhesion (60 oz./inch) to metallic and fiberboard surfaces and features good shear strength for demanding applications, such as bundling, strapping and reinforcing. When compared to staples, reinforced gum tapes and standard tensilized polypropylene tapes, 3M's family of Reinforced Strapping Tapes offers superior clarity to enhance a package's "on-shelf" presentation at point-of-purchase and permits accurate bar code scanning during checkout.
