Conforms to FDA SPECS: 21 CFR 175.105 and CFR 177.1520 (clear tape only)
Complies with environmental considerations of ASTM D 1974-14

Application and Operating Conditions

Under normal conditions the tape should unwind and adhere to the substrate properly, and perform as normally 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).  The information listed above has been obtained from controlled laboratory tests and is reliable, but should not be used for the purpose of writing specifications. It is offered in good faith, but without guarantee, as conditions and methods of use of STA products are beyond STA’s control. It is recommended that the prospective user determine their suitability before adapting them on a commercial scale.
