One -Way 8 is an abrasion resistant, extra strong, biased splicing tape for use on abrasive belt butt splicing with heavy duty X and Y weight cotton and polyester backings. One-Way 8 is also recommended for very course grit applications or combination materials that require additional film thickness, and can be used with glue bond, resin/glue, full resin, and waterproof coated abrasives for narrow and wide belts.
All Adirondack One-Way products are supplied with our exclusive primer system which has been specifically designed to promote adhesion of urethane adhesives to the tape. This specially designed polymer primer impregnates the fiber bundles and reduces yarn splitting that can occur with high viscosity adhesive systems. In addition, the primer stops filament displacement that can occur during adhesive application on loop type knife coaters.
Primed ADK tapes are advantageously used in a two-way adhesive application using contact bonding under pressure with heat activation. The following are suggested parameters which have been successfully employed in joining endless abrasive belts:
|Adhesive Type:||Linear Polyester Polyurethane|
|Adhesive Application to Tape:||1.5-2.0 mils (37.5-50 microns)|
|Adhesive Application to Backing:||3-12 oz/yd2 (100-400 gm/m2)|
|Drying Time:||10-30 minutes at room temperature depending on the amount of curing agent and relative humidity.|
| Time:||10-20 seconds|
| Temperature:||72-150°F (23-65°C)|
| Pressure:||2000 PSI (140 kg/cm2)|
| Temperature:|| Room Temperature|
| Time:||Full cure will develop between 48 and 72 hours.|
One-Way 8 is stable for at least 1 year when stored under cool, dry conditions (about 72°F/23°C). It must be protected from exposure to humidity and direct sunlight.
