These tapes feature a backing that is wider than the adhesive making leaving a non-adhesive dry edge. This makes the backing easier to remove. These tapes can be made from paper, plastic or unsupported adhesives for permanent or removable applications. This makes them perfect for envelopes, bags, light weight signs and business forms. The backing is generally printed with instructions. Custom printing is available with enough volume.
Made from tissue paper soaked with a very aggressive rubber based adhesive. It sticks very well to a wide range of paper, light plastics and metal surfaces making it perfect for envelopes, bags, light signs business forms and more.
Available in a wide range of widths and lengths for automatic or manual application.
Hi-Lo Tapes --
Double-coated tapes with a permanent adhesive on one side (Hi side) and a removable adhesive on the other (lo side). The permanent side sticks to most surfaces and the removable side comes off cleanly. They are available in a wide range of widths and lengths for automatic or manual application.
Use them to make re-closable bags, temporay signs and displays, removable labels or to position materials during machining.
Unsupported adhesive tapes --
These tapes (also called transfer adhesives) are made from pure adhesive, like rubber cement on a roll. They are available in a range of formulations for permanent or removable applications.
They offer the best value and the longest rolls but because they have no internal structure to support the adhesive they are finicky to work with. They should only be used with automatic equipment.
Bag Making Tapes --
These tapes have a plastic backing that can be side welded during the bag making process. Available in permanent and removable (reclosable) styles in a wide range of sizes.
Although these tapes can come in shorter lengths for manual application they are designed for automatic application.
