3M™ Repulpable Single Coated Splicing Tape 901 is a semi-bleached kraft paper coated splicing tape comprised of a repulpable backing and adhesive mounted on a translucent red plastic film liner. It is primarily used for butt splicing and to tape lip and tail on unfinished splices.

Ideal for Uncoated and Bleached Papers
3M™ Repulpable Single Coated Splicing Tape 901 (PDF, 426.16 Kb) is a single coated splicing tape designed primarily for uncoated papers. This 9 mil thick tape is comprised of a white backing and a green repulpable adhesive. This tape is totally repulpable, eliminating the need to remove splice from waste. It is also repulpable in water and prevents contamination of paper mill broke by non-repulpable splice material. The white backing readily accepts most inks and coatings and can be printed on. A non-repulpable, translucent red, UPVC liner assists with tape application.

Recommended Application

  • Butt splicing
  • Taping the lip and tail on finished splices
  • Sealing leading or trailing edges of uncoated or highly starched paper grades

Heat-Resistant Adhesive
3M™ Repulpable Single Coated Splicing Tape 901 features a light green repulpable adhesive designed to provide excellent bonding strength and affinity to cellulose fibers. This heat-resistant adhesive reduces splicing failure due to high drying oven temperatures in order to help save money by reducing down time. Because of this resistance, this tape performs in web applications at temperatures are high as 400°F/204°C. This adhesive is ideal for uncoated and bleached papers.

Repulpable Adhesive won't Contaminate Paper Mill Broke
The repulpable adhesive on our 3M™ Repulpable Single Coated Splicing Tape 901 prevents broke contamination for non-repulpable splice material. This product meets or exceeds TAPPI UM-213, procedure A.
