3M™ Scotch® 6147 Water Activated Paper Tape
Simplify your packing operations with a proven solution. 3M™ Water Activated Paper Tape 6147 is an easy, economical solution to a range of basic carton sealing challenges. Designed for light duty, this water-activated "gummed" adhesive tape provides a strong seal to a wide variety of corrugated surfaces. A 3-way fiber glass reinforcing pattern in the backing adds strength in all directions.
3M™ Water Activated Paper Tape 6147, with 3-way fiber glass reinforcement and high-tack, water activated adhesive, ensures your corrugated boxes stay sealed until ready for opening. The three-way fiber glass reinforcing pattern has threads laced in a diamond cross-machine pattern of 75 Denier Fiberglass at 33/64". The spacing ratio is 2-1-1-1-2. Cross machine threads using 50 Denier Fiberglass are used to complete the diamond pattern with slightly less than 1-1/4" spacing between threads. In tandem with the reinforced virgin kraft paper, high-tack water activated adhesive system holds the tape in place throughout shipping, handling and storage. The tape is 3" wide, 8.5 mil thick and is available in natural and white colors.
3M™ Water Activated Paper Tape 6147 is recommended for sealing packages weighing a maximum of 45 lbs. The optimal method for securing a box is to form two C clips on each carton top and bottom. When water-activated, this tape easily and quickly conforms over carton edges and corners to form secure, tamper-evident C clip and I clip seals. Water-activated, or "gummed," tape is very effective for sealing corrugated cartons, as the adhesive will bond with the fiberboard material to create a strong durable seal and endure the toughest handling and shipping scenarios. This tape works well on recycled cartons and non-unitized loads. Its reinforced construction assures reliable performance across a range of environments and applications. This economical packaging tape meets the needs of numerous industries and general industrial applications such as food, beverage, medical pharmaceutical, paper, print, electronics, shipping and distribution centers.
Application is most easily accomplished at room temperature and once applied; the tape performs well throughout the normal temperature ranges typically encountered by packaged products in shipping and storage environments.
