US-based technology group 3M has introduced a new adhesive, Scotch clean removal strapping tape 8899HP, to help pack appliance parts and electronic components safely.
Designed to offer a strong and durable hold on the packaging, the newly launched tape does not leave sticky residue or stain on the packed products.
Developed with 3M’s proprietary pressure-sensitive rubber adhesive, the tape includes a tensilised polypropylene film backing that provides proper stiffness and resistance to moisture.
The new tape is available in various widths and colours and can be used both by hand and with a dispenser.
3M industrial adhesives and tapes division US product marketer Mitch Hallan said: “Customers were asking for a product that was easy to apply, allowing users to save time and costs associated with rework.
“Applying 3M’s expertise with adhesives, we developed a tape that can reduce costs by ensuring a secure hold with less tape and reducing the risk of residue damage.”
Additionally, the tape can be applied to and adhere to common surfaces, including vinyl, painted metal, stainless steel, plastic and glass.
While shipping, the tape can also be used to hold shelving, racks, doors, panels, electrical cords and other parts.
In August, 3M unveiled a new range of conceal film, which helps in removing visual pollution at wireless infrastructure sites.
The new 3M conceal film can be applied to adhere to antennas and blend cell site equipment into its surrounding environment without affecting radio frequency performance and signal transmission.
