This formaldehyde-free tape system is part of Adchem's 300 series. It uses the quick-stick properties found in rubber-based systems and the temperature performance of acrylic systems. It offers maximum performance at a lower price, with a differential caliper coating of 1.7 mils on the exposed side and 1.3 mils on the liner side, and typical peel values of 72 oz-inch width on the exposed side and 64 oz-inch on the liner side. It has many liner options including 55-lb densified Kraft, 74-lb polycoated paper, 12-point board and a 2-mil PET liner. It is made for substrate-bonding applications, and is useful for low surface energy materials and foams such as cross-linked polyethylene, low perms, ethers and esters.
