3M™ Heat Tabbing Tape 5081 is a 0.10 mm (0.004 in) thick, blue, heat-bondable film that shows excellent adherence to the polyolefin release liner found on most 3M™ Acrylic Plus Sealing Tapes and 3M™ Acrylic Foam Tapes.
Makes Removing Tape Liners an Easier Task3M™ Tabbing Tape 5081, Blue, 0.10 mm is a heat-bondable tape that shows excellent adhesion to the polyolefin release liner found on most 3M™ Acrylic Plus Tapes and 3M™ Acrylic Foam Tapes. This ensures a reliable means of liner removal in a production environment. It has a matte finish on the exposed surface to enhance slip and handling characteristics. For Use on a Variety of Tape LinersHeat-activated tabbing tapes can be used with all non-siliconized tape liners. For siliconized liners, the silicon layer must mechanically be removed before applying the heat-activated tabbing tape. 3M applicators are recommended for this process. Recommendations for Heat-Activated Tabbing TapesBefore using this product, make sure that the surface is clean and dry, free from dirt particles, oil, silicon layers or other contamination. 3M™ Tabbing Tape 5081 is thermally applied to the liner. The sealing temperature and sealing time must be adjusted according to application and equipment used. Under lab conditions the temperature range 130° to 155° Celsius is used for about 0.8-1.2 seconds with a pressure of approximately 30N/cm².
