3M™ Thin Printable Repulpable Single Coated Splicing Tape 9969B


3M 9969W

An ultra-thin, printable/coatable cover tape that is available in blue. Ideal for coated and uncoated grades of paper.

The ultra thin caliper (2.2 mil) of 9969 tape makes it a very good option for covering overlap splices as the splice travels through the coater or nip rollers. It accepts inks and coatings and can be used as a butt splicing tape when the optional split liner is utilized. 9969 white is also used as a hole patch and can be ordered in two oval shapes. FDA compliant.


  • Sealed plastic bags assure product stability for consistent performance
  • Tape and liner repulpability are excellent and eliminate possibility of contamination of the paper mill broke with non-repulpable materials
