Customer Reviews
3M™ Polyester Film Tape 853 is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 1.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Best lasting outdoor tape! This tape has been absolutely essential in 33 years of running experiments on elevated CO2 at the Smithsonian's Global Change Research Wetlands. We are always looking for something less expensive but nothing works as well as this. We use it to secure various clear films into panels for open top chambers used in measuring effects of elevated CO2 on ecosystems. It holds in all weather, lasts about 2-8 years in full sun, and our projects cant work without it!
