The Pressure Sensitive Adhesive Specialists in Adhesive Tapes & Glues
PSA1010, is a low noise polypropylene heavy duty carton sealing tape, carrying the same aggressive hotmelt adhesive but the surface is coated especially to reduce the noise of the tape unwinding.
This heavy duty packaging tape is ideal for volume users who are applying tape at speed with dispensers, due to its excellent mechanical resistance.
This tapes main features are that it has:
- Low noise
- High tensile strength
- Heavy duty tape
- Ideal for use with tape dispensers
Application surface information
Although self-adhesive tapes are usually compatible with most materials and application surfaces, some materials have anti-adhesive properties or low compatibility with the chemical composition of certain adhesives.
In some cases, adhesion may be affected by the excessive interaction between adhesive and material / surface. For this reason, carrying out a compatibility test is fundamental.
Condition of use
The tape should be applied at a temperature of 15°C and 25°C in a dry environment; it is advisable not to apply the tape at temperatures below 10°C.
Note that at lower or higher temperatures, the tape may react differently, depending on chemical composition or formulation.
For maximum efficiency please take the following into account:
- The substrate must be dry and free of dust
- Do not apply tape on surfaces which have been treated or contaminated with anti-adhesive materials
- Do not use paints which contain additives which may reduce adhesive properties
- The surface must be free of plasticizers or other chemical agents incompatible with the tape
- Tape adheres best to smooth surfaces
- When dealing with rough or irregular surfaces use tape with a higher adhesive coating weight
- Always test tape on a substrate to insure that there is no adhesive residue
It is recommended that tape be stored at a temperature of 15°C to 25°C with a maximum relative humidity of 65%; material must therefore be kept away from heat sources, if possible in its original packaging and avoid exposure to light. In case of storage at temperatures below 10°C tapes must be brought to room temperature before use.
The functional characteristics of the adhesive tapes are generally maintained for a period of no less than 12 months unless otherwise stated by the manufacturer.
