Frequently Asked Questions

How does adhesive transfer tape differ from other types of adhesive tape? 

Adhesive transfer tape stands out from other adhesive tapes due to its unique construction. Unlike traditional tapes, it lacks a visible backing material, offering a thin profile and precise bonding. Its clean, nearly invisible appearance enhances aesthetics, making it ideal for discreet applications. Supplied on a release liner, it is easy to handle and apply accurately, making it versatile for various industries and projects requiring strong, reliable bonding with minimal bulk.

What are the advantages of using adhesive transfer tape? 

  • Thin Profile: Ideal for space-limited applications, reduces weight.
  • High Bonding Strength: Creates strong and durable bonds for critical tasks.
  • Clean and Invisible Bonding: Provides a neat and discreet appearance.
  • Easy Application: Supplied on a release liner for accurate placement.
  • Versatility: Suitable for bonding various materials.
  • No Residue: Leaves little to no adhesive residue upon removal.
  • No Edge Sealing Required: Simplifies application and reduces material waste.
  • Resistance to Temperature and Moisture - Reliable performance in challenging environments.

Is adhesive transfer tape suitable for indoor and outdoor applications?

For indoor applications 

    • Product Assembly: Used for assembling components, bonding parts, and securing materials together indoors.
    • Electronics: For bonding electronic parts, securing flexible circuits, and other electronic assembly applications.
    • Graphic Arts: Used for mounting photos, posters, prints, and artwork.
    • Signage: Employed in mounting signs, posters, banners, and other displays.
    • Paper and Packaging: Bonding paper materials, envelopes, and packaging applications.
