As well as regular tapes Manuli Packaging are able to provide a wide range of more specialist tapes which are used for more specific applications.
Masking tape is an adhesive tape with an easy to tear paper backing. The adhesive on masking tape allows it to be easily removed from the surface it is applied to without damaging the surface. These properties make masking tape popular for marking off areas when painting and doing DIY.
Manuli Packaging stock an economy masking tape in the widths of 25mm, 50mm and 75mm but is available in widths of 4mm – 1350mm with 50m per roll. There are many different grades of masking tape available with more heat specific properties and varying strengths of adhesion. Please enquire for more bespoke options that are available to meet your requirements.
Double Sided Tape
Double sided tape is a tape with an adhesive layer on both sides with a paper layer that stops the tape sticking to itself which is then peeled away to expose the top layer of adhesive. Double sided tape is often used to stick two surfaces together without being visible.
Manuli Packaging stock double sided tape in a 38mm width but it is available in tissue or polypropylene varieties in widths of widths of 4mm – 1350mm with 50m per roll.
Mono filament tapes contain fibreglass filaments running the length of the tape in the backing material. Crossweave tapes have the additional reinforcement of filaments running the length and width of the tape in a criss-cross pattern. These filaments give the tape a greatly increased tensile strength.
They are used for case sealing of heavy boxes and bundling heavy products. Manuli Packaging stock filament tape in 25mm and 50mm widths but are available in widths of 4mm – 1350mm with 50m per roll. Filament tapes are available in different adhesives and with different tensile strengths depending on the application.
Cloth tapes are commonly referred to as “Duct tape” or “Gaffer tape”. Cloth tape is manufactured with a fabric weave in the backing of the tape. This weave can be made out of a variety of materials such as cotton, nylon or fibreglass depending on the strength required by the application. This weave allows the tape to be very strong whilst remaining flexible and has a strong adhesive.
Cloth tape is water resistant and is available in a variety of colours although black or silver are the most common. Available in mm wide rolls with 50m per roll.
Rather than the backing of the tape being one solid colour it is possible to print on the backing with text or a company logo. Printed tapes are available in any of the adhesives and any size.
