Intertape Polymer Group Launches New RG400 100# Tensile Strength Filament Tape

Published on 2008-09-09. Author : SpecialChem

BRADENTON, FLORIDA -- Intertape Polymer Group announces the introduction of a new Intertape® brand filament tape product, RG400, constructed for applications where the highest performance of 100 pound tensile strength is needed. RG400 performs best for product applications such as bundling, strapping, palletizing, load stabilization and temporary encasement. It allows end-users to dial in their desired filament strength through various widths while giving them optimal performance with high adhesion levels, read-through clarity, and delamination resistance, all at an affordable price point.

"Our Research and Development team was able to create a filament tape that can boast the highest level of adhesion for this level of tensile strength currently produced in the market," explained Lisa Nalette, IPG Product Manager for Industrial Products. The reinforced tape market represents approximately $130 million.

Its hand-breakable construction and excellent resistance to delamination sets RG400 apart from its competition. These features make it easier for the end-user to stop, break and restart a roll, and it eliminates the need for costly application equipment or knives.

From an aesthetics perspective, RG400 offers contact clear 'lanes' between evenly-spaced and straight filaments for easy read-through of graphics.

Response from the market has been fantastic and customers have begun enjoying the benefits that this new filament tape now offers," Nalette added. "We want to give customers a choice based on application and pricing point needs. RG400 now adds that additional element to our comprehensive line of filament tapes. We are pleased that we have been able to bring this new product to market."
