IPG’s new RG89 provides the strength and adhesive characteristics required in critical applications in various industries including Oil & Gas, Appliance, and General Industrial Manufacturing.

RG89 was designed to help optimize operations and reduce risks in the Oil & Gas industry by helping to prevent the deformation known as ‘birdcaging’ during manufacture and use of Subsea Umbilical cables,

Risers and Flow lines (SURF). Similarly, in the Appliance industry, RG89 can be used for securing heavyweight baseloid lift-flap cartons during appliance manufacturing and transport.

“IPG is committed to providing the markets we serve with high-quality and cost-effective application specific solutions,” said Nicole Houston, Product Manager for Filament Tapes. “RG89 is the solution for applications requiring one of the highest tensile strength products.”

“This new product launch strengthens IPG’s commitment to provide manufacturers with unique and leading-edge solutions that improve productivity while keeping costs down.

RG89 is the latest in a series of new introductions from IPG,” stated Cindy Stoner, Senior Director – Market Development.
