Pressure Sensitive Tapes


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.


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