3M™ Repulpable Splittable Flying Splice Tape is a 5.0 mil (0.13 mm) splicing tape ideal for lower-temperature applications including newspaper, gravure, offset and flexographic printing as well as offline splice preparation and subsequent roll storage. It features easy-release break-open mechanism for fast, smooth flying splices. This straight-across tape helps eliminate complex or multi-tape setup, thereby saving time.
3M™ Repulpable Flying Splice Tape is ideal for low- to medium-temperature ovens on a range of substrates. Its 2.5 mil (0.06 mm) repulpable adhesive is suitable for light- to medium-weight paper as well as substrates including polyethylene, BOPP, polyester, cast polypropylene and aluminum foil. This splittable flying splice tape features a split liner that allows for easy roll preparation. The 3M proprietary break-open mechanism releases easily for smooth, reliable splices. Unlike the competitor, 3M™ Repulpable Flying Splice Tape is fibre-free. This can result in less contamination on your blankets and throughout your process. This may lead to fewer printing defects and less downtime spent on cleanup. Both the adhesive and the liner of 3M™ Repulpable Flying Splice Tape are repulpable, which prevents broke contamination caused by non-repulpable fibres helping to increase the value of waste paper. The adhesive and backing meet or exceed TAPPI UM-213, procedure A.
