Extreme Tape for Extreme Applications. Designed as a high-performance specialty packaging tape, Scotch® Bi-Directional Filament Tape combines a strong polypropylene backing, reinforced with continuous, bi-directional glass yarn filaments and a synthetic rubber resin adhesive. This heavy-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. It's an ideal choice for high-strength box reinforcing, heavy-duty sealing, shipping, splicing and palletizing. Industrial and commercial users include manufacturers and distributors of food and beverages, sporting goods, piping, metal fabrications, automotive parts and furniture. Translucent: underlaying brands, bar codes and other graphics can be read through the tape.
