Butt splices for paper manufacturing

  • Whether for temporary splicing applications inside the mill, or permanent splices that go to your customers, butt splices are a good option for thick papers—or for passing through nips that don’t allow thick stacks of paper. For best performance, use a 3M butt splicing tape.

    • Repulpable to prevent broke contamination from non-repulpable splice material (Repulpability determined according to TAPPI UM-213, Procedure A)
    • High shear strength that won‘t slip at high web tensions—a problem that can leave exposed adhesive and can cause web breaking because of adhesive “blocking”
    • Heat resistance to withstand high oven temperatures (typically associated with web printing), which helps reduce downtime at your customer due to splice failure
    • FDA compliant 21 CFR 176.170 and/or 21 CFR 176.180 so the tape can be used on most food grade papers
