Hole patching at the re-reeler

  • You can achieve reliable hole patching with 3M™ Repulpable Single Coated Printable Splicing Tapes. Just cut the printable splicing tape into a rounded- or diamond-shaped patch larger than the hole, then press the patch into place over the hole.

    The thin, strong backing provides reliable hole patching that holds through coaters and supercalenders—increasing yield through mill or printing operations. The backing is also printable and accepts coatings to help assure high quality printing without flaking or print distortion. The high shear strength adhesive holds firmly to many grades of paper to help reduce the number of splices.

    • Repulpability to prevent broke contamination from non-repulpable splice material (Repulpability determined according to TAPPI UM-213, Procedure A) 
    • All of these tapes—except Splicing Tape 901—are FDA compliant 21 CFR 176.170 and/or 21 CFR 176.180 so the tape can be used on most food grade papers
