Shurtape Offers Tape for Manufacturing Lines

HICKORY, NC | Shurtape reports its new FP 115 high-performance-grade flatback paper tape keeps paper, tube and, core manufacturing lines running at peak production.

FP 115 is designed to secure the paper to the core during roll startup, hold the splice during processing, and anchor the end of the roll securely. It is also said to be ideal for tasks in which the tape must stick well to itself, including shingling and overlapping applications.

Company says benefits include the following:

• Strong Hold: The aggressive, rubber-based adhesive sticks quickly to both smooth and porous papers, including 100% recycled paper. It also adds shear strength, allowing it to hold safely during processing at both ambient and elevated temperatures.

• Easy Handling: A unique release coat enables tape to start-up easily off the roll, unwind smoothly and consistently, and tear cleanly by hand—even while wearing gloves

• Tough Construction: The reinforced flatback paper backing adds strength and stability, which allows the tape to endure the production process, including the pressure of rollers and tension devices.

• Moisture and Humidity Resistance: Tape is designed to maintain a strong hold, even in operations where humidity and moisture are present, to prevent tape lifting, puckering and curling.

“Tape is an essential tool in paper, tube, and core manufacturing,” says Kelly Patrick, product manager for industrial tapes at Shurtape. “These manufacturers don’t have time to waste worrying about whether or not it will hold throughout the production process. From the durable paper backing to the unique adhesive combination, we’ve engineered FP 115 to withstand the rigors of the job, delivering a high quality tape solution you can count on.”
