TAPERITE

PRESSURE SENSITIVE TAPES

Description

Taperite -Tensilized is highly oriented in the machine (MD) direction.  Unlike BOPP film, which has a higher degree of transverse (TD) direction strength, Taperite has a high degree of strength in the machine (MD) direction, where you want the strength.

Features

  • High MD tensile
  • Low shrinkage
  • Wide range of gauges and colors
  • Low MD elongation

Standard Colors

  • Clear matte
  • Black
  • White
  • Blue
  • Ivory
  • Yellow

Applications

  • Pressure Sensitive tapes
  • Bundling and Strapping of heavy items
  • Tear and Identification tapes
