They come with rubber, acrylic or silicone adhesives for a wide range of applications, including splicing, sealing, fastening, bundling, marking, masking, protecting and insulating.

    Cloth tape is commonly used for consumer applications, such as repairs on material, and for industrial applications, such as aircraft maintenance and repair. Glass cloth tape offers high tensile strength, high abrasion resistance and excellent performance in extreme temperatures up to 450°F.

    Single sided cloth tape characteristics:

    • Conformable
    • UV resistance
    • Range of adhesive types: silicone, rubber and acrylic
    • Very strong abrasion and puncture resistance
    • High temperature resistance
    • Flame resistance
    • Water resistance
    • Long ageing
