Application & Operating Conditions

The conditions at which the tape is unwound and applied to the substrate. Under normal conditions, the tape should unwind and adhere to the substrate properly and perform as normally as expected. The tape should be used within 1 year of the date of shipment.

Notes: *Shear is the tape’s ability to resist the sliding of two substrates relative to each other’s planes of contact. (To hold flaps down)
