Details

Highlights
  • Thick, aggressive tape ideal for sealing and moisture resistant applications
  • Very high tensile strength meets the needs of the most demanding applications
  • Easy tear backing won't require tools to cut
  • Good holding power and shear strength makes this tape ideal for holding and hanging applications
  • High tack rubber adhesive bonds well to many surfaces with excellent initial tack

Scotch® Polyethylene Coated Cloth Tape 390 is constructed with a polyethylene film laminated to cloth with a rubber adhesive. The aggressive rubber resin adhesive sticks instantly and holds well to many substrates. It is commonly used in applications requiring high strength and moisture resistance.

Strong and Pliable Backing
Scotch® Polyethylene Coated Cloth Tape 390 features a durable backing constructed from high strength polyethylene over a cloth scrim. This backing is conformable to wrap around curved or irregular surfaces. It resists moisture, wear and abrasion, yet remains easy to tear by hand. It offers excellent tensile strength for the most demanding jobs commonly found in the industrial, metalworking, military, government and MRO industries.

Recommended Applications
  • Sealing and protecting articles for shipment where moisture resistance is important
  • Maintenance repair and other (MRO) applications for patching, bundling, reinforcing, tabbing and temporary repair in construction, electrical, industrial, marine and military markets
  • Hanging polyethylene drapes, industrial masking and light sandblast overspray protection

Excellent Initial Stick and Good Holding Power
Scotch® Polyethylene Coated Cloth Tape 390 features a rubber resin adhesive that offers good shear strength for demanding applications such as bundling, strapping and reinforcing. This adhesive is formulated to provide good adhesion to many surfaces, including metals and fiberboard. It features a high tack for good, quick stick to these surfaces. Once bonded this adhesive also provides good, long-term holding power.
