  • About adhesive transfer tape

    An adhesive transfer tape is a pressure sensitive adhesive with no carrier, directly coated onto a release liner. These tapes very quickly bond two surfaces and can be easily applied by hand, with a dispenser or using automated pick and place technology. They are designed to increase manufacturing efficiency by replacing traditional bonding and fastening materials, offering a reliable bonding solution.

    Adhesive transfer tapes are especially suitable where a thin and invisible bond is required and are ideal for bonding lightweight materials like paper, cloth or plastic. They are available in a variety of thicknesses and adhesive formulations and will attach a wide range of similar and dissimilar materials. Repositionable transfer tapes are also available and can be removed and reused numerous times without leaving any adhesive residue.

    We can easily combine transfer tapes with other materials,  such as laminating to foams. They are easily die-cut into convenient shapes and sizes; offering a variety of options to meet your individual needs.

    We offer an extensive range of transfer tapes from World leading manufacturers. Click on the products tab for more information.
