Scotch® Reinforced Strapping Tape 863 is a high-strength strapping tape designed with a unique backing that is reinforced with continuous polypropylene monofilaments. This backing provides excellent resistance to cutting, nicking, tearing or puncturing that typically cause un-reinforced tapes to sever and fail.
The clearest high-strength tape available
Strong: proprietary tape construction features polypropylene backing with monofilament "ribs" for tape strength
Secure: resists nicking, cutting, tearing or puncturing during handling and use
Clear: no filaments that reduce tape clarity and obstruct carton graphics or marketing content
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.
Because of their excellent tape strength and clarity, 3M's family of Reinforced Strapping Tapes can be used in many markets and applications:
"L"-clip closure on non-standard corrugated fiberboard shipping containers
Bundling of pipe, tube or other building materials
Pallet unitizing for temporary load containment and storage
Bundling of rolled goods such as carpet, padding, laminates, vinyl sheets
Gaylord® or pallet box reinforcement
