  • About differential tape

    A differential tape is a double sided tape that is coated with a different adhesive on either side of the tape’s carrier. Differential tape products are ideal for applications requiring temporary holding, repositionable placement and for permanently bonding two different substrates where one is easy to adhere to and one is difficult to adhere to.

    We offer an extensive range of differential tape products from World leading manufacturers; click on the products tab for more information.

    Differential tape characteristics:

    • Available with differing adhesive types
    • Available with differing adhesive strengths
    • Available with differing coating thicknesses
    • Available with a range of carrier materials
    • Humidity and chemical resistance
    • Bonds to a variety of substrates

    Our applications include:

    • Silicone keypad bonding
    • Medical device attachment to skin
    • Reclosable packaging systems
    • Short-term carpet fixation
  • Search differential tapes
