Mactac Adds Innovative Permanent/Removable Double-coated Tape

The new product—IB5121-72—offers exceptional performance for applications that require a high initial tack and permanent bond to one surface and clean removal or repositionability from another surface. To achieve this unique application solution, MACbond IB5121-72 features Mactac’s aggressive 1.2-mil XT high performance rubber adhesive on the unwind side of a 0.5-mil PET carrier and a unique 1.0-mil low-tack removable acrylic adhesive on the liner side. The dual-performance adhesive is protected by a two-side silicone-coated 72# bleached poly-coated, dimensionally stable liner.

“We designed IB5121-72 specifically because our customers requested a high-performing double-coated tape that could meet their specialized dual-purpose permanent/removable needs,” said Janet Page, Senior Marketing Manager, Mactac Performance Adhesives. “Not only is this new product cost-effective for our customers, it truly showcases the breadth and depth of Mactac’s innovative 100% solids adhesive technology.”

MACbond IB5121-72 is ideal for fastening foam and low-surface energy materials, paper and cardboard, and most felts and fabrics to surfaces that require clean removal, such as glass, plastics and metal. With excellent handling characteristics and superior die-cutting capabilities, it is designed for the following applications:

  • Protective packaging
  • Point-of-purchase displays
  • Shelf marking
  • Promotional displays
  • Credit card mailers
  • Foam gasketing

It is also an excellent option for re-closable bags for parts assembly or work-in-process aids.

MACbond IB5121-72 is available in fifty-four-inch rolls and features a two-year shelf life.
