3M™ Printable Repulpable Single Coated Splicing Tape 9103 is a blue kraft paper with a blue, repulpable adhesive on an easy-release liner. It is primarily used for butt splicing coated paper and board at the re-reeler and winders.
Excellent for Use on Lightweight Coated Papers
The combination of high initial adhesion and very good heat resistance makes 3M™ Printable Repulpable Single Coated Splicing Tape 9103 ideal for coated papers and boards. This tape can withstand web temperatures up to 400°F (204°C) to help prevent splice failure and reduce down time. The kraft backing is untreated and readily accepts most inks and coatings.
Prevents Broke Contamination from Non-Repulpable Material
Repulpable construction means there is no need to remove splice from waste. The tape’s water dispersability eliminates the danger of contaminating the paper mill broke with non-repulpable material. It meets or exceeds TAPPI UM-213, procedure A, so it helps to save labor costs and increase the value of waste paper.
All components of the adhesive and backing meet the requirements of indirect food additive regulations as described under 21 CFR 176.170 and 21 CFR 176.180.
