Other standards & specifications

Conforms to FDS SPECS: 21 CFR 175.105 and CFR 177.1520 for indirect food contact (Clear tape only). Complies with environmental considerations of ASTM D 1974-14′.

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 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 firmly 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 adopting them on a commercial scale.
