2575 Provident – Non Asphaltic 3-Way Reinforced Water Activated Tape

Typical Applications:
Reinforced paper gummed tape for sealing lightweight cartons subjected to minimal shipping hazards and stress.



3-way reinforcing yarns laminated between 2 sheets of 20# and 24# kraft paper with a non-asphaltic, water-resistant, flexible, and non-staining amorphous polypropylene. Yarns in the machine direction average no more than 5/8′ apart. Yarns in the cross-machine direction are arranged in a diamond pattern with the spacing between the parallel sides of the diamond averaging not more than 1 1/4″
