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.

tesa Double Sided Filmic Tapes

tesa Double-Sided Filmic tapes use 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 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
