  • About plastic film tapes

    Our single sided film tapes are available in a variety of backings, colours, thicknesses and performance characteristics. They come with rubber, acrylic or silicone adhesives for a wide range of applications, including bonding, masking, bundling, damping, splicing, reinforcing, colour coding and sealing.

    The plastic film tape backings include polyester, polypropylene, polyethylene, polyvinyl chloride (vinyl), polyimide (e.g. Kapton), polyamide (nylon), PTFE, polyvinyl alcohol (PVA), polyurethane and polyvinyl fluoride. These backing materials all affect how the underlying surface relates to the environment, for effective solutions under a variety of conditions. Click on the products tab for more information.
