3M™ Venture Tape™ Double Coated Flame-Resistant Film Tape 3693FLE is a thin, flame-resistant film coated on both sides with an aggressive, cold weather acrylic PSA, with a removable liner wider than the tape on one edge. It is commonly used as a self-adhesive closure system on the longitudinal lap of jacketed pipe insulation (SSL – self seal lap) or a temporary closure system for PVC jacketing.
Flame-resistant tape with a Finger Lift Edge liner
3M™ Venture Tape™ Double Coated Flame-Resistant Film Tape 3693FLE is a flame-resistant double coated film tape that is UL723 Listed (0/0 Flame/Smoke Rating). The adhesive coating both sides of the film is an aggressive, cold weather acrylic pressure sensitive adhesive (PSA). This tape is commonly used as a self-adhesive closure system on the longitudinal lap of jacketed pipe insulation (SSL – self seal lap) or a temporary closure system for PVC jacketing.
This tape has a finger lift edge (FLE), meaning that on one edge the removable liner extends beyond the adhesive, making it easier to manually remove the liner. The tape width listed on the product description is the width of the liner, including the ¼” FLE. For example, 0.25" FLE + 1.25" adhesive = 1.5" total tape (liner) width.
Please pay attention to the full SKU description to understand if the FLE is on the right-hand or left-hand edge of the tape you are ordering:
