3M Splicing Systems for Printing
3M™ Splicing Systems for Printing
Bringing it all together for flying and zero speed splices, high temp, low temp, non-repulpable, and repulpable.
3M™ Non-Repulpable Splicing Tapes
Adhesive transfer and double coated tapes for reliable overlap splices
3M™ Adhesive Transfer Tapes
For an overlap splice, simply press the adhesive side of the tape to one of the surfaces to be spliced. Peel off the liner and you have a neat strip of adhesive for immediate bonding. Select from a range of adhesive properties.
3M™ Double Coated Tapes
Adhesive is on both sides of a carrier that increases dimensional stability of the adhesive for easy handling and application in making overlap splices.
3M™ Polyester Tapes
These high strength single-coated tapes provide thin caliper with some of the highest tensile strengths available for overlap and butt splices.
3M™ Repulpable Splicing Tapes for Printing
From core starting to roll closing/tabbing and all the splices in-between, these totally repulpable single and double coated tapes offer you the shear strength, high tack, and heat resistance necessary for dependable productivity. Backings and adhesives are engineered for optimum strength for every type of splice: flying, overlap, butt, and general purpose.
3M™ Splicing Aids
Building on the wide variety of adhesives and backings, 3M has developed specialized tapes for splicing and other web process aids. For example, black crepe paper tape conforms to the roll and signals the knife cut during the splicing process. For reusing cores, double coated removable/repositionable tape features a permanent adhesive on one side of a carrier that bonds permanently to the core. Adhesive strength on the other side of the carrier holds paper and film with enough strength for reliable wind-up but easy release when unwinding.
