Designed with an adhesive that provides good initial adhesion and holds well with minimum rub-down, Scotch® Filament Tape 897 is a general purpose solution for a variety of bundling and reinforcing applications. The backing, filaments and adhesive combine to provide high tensile and shear strength compared to general purpose tapes. It allows for printing and illustrations to be seen through the tape. This tape holds under a wide range of application conditions with a minimum amount of tape, leading to lower cost for applications where high tensile strength is a main requirement.
