Double Sided Filmic Tapes
Double-sided filmic tapes are relatively thin and dimensionally stable. They are also ideal for bonding to flat, smooth surfaces such as glass, metal and non-embossed plastics.
Double-sided filmic tapes are relatively thin and dimensionally stable, providing an excellent balance of adhesive peel and durable performance. Filmic tapes are also ideal for bonding to flat, smooth surfaces such as glass, metal and non-embossed plastics.
What are Double Sided Filmic Tapes?
tesa Double Sided Filmic tapes feature a a film substrate coated on both sides with either a polypropylene (PP), polyester (PET) or polyvinyl chloride (PVC) carrier. This type of carrier is dimensionally stable and has good resistance to chemicals and heat.
Double sided filmic tapes are relatively thin and are ideal for bonding to flat, smooth surfaces such as glass, metal and non-embossed plastics. For uneven surfaces such as wood it is necessary to select a double sided filmic tape with either a high adhesive coat weight or thin carrier, or both of these.
The films are usually clear or white, although there is a range of polyester (PET) tapes with black carriers in our assortment.
These double sided filmic tapes are usually combined with acrylic adhesives - usually tackified (or modified) or pure - which feature similar properties to the filmic carriers in terms of resistance to UV, chemicals and heat. Natural rubber and synthetic rubber adhesives are also used; however, these do not offer the same properties as acrylic adhesives and are more suited to general purpose, internal applications
