Helpful Tips for Taping Success
- Butt splicing, supercalender and winders
- High shear/high temperature splicing
- Lightweight coated papers
For the best results, apply firm and even pressure to the taped area to create the best possible adhesion between the tape and paper surface. Optimal application temperature range is: 70° to 100°F (21° to 38°C).
