Preview: Essentra to Feature Specialty Tape Products at Upcoming Events

Essentra Specialty Tapes will display its extensive line of specialty tape products at two premier industry events this Fall: the Shopper Marketing Conference and Expo in Minneapolis, October 13 to 15, and also the upcoming SGIA (Specialty Graphic Imaging Association) Expo in Atlanta, November 4 to 6. The company will also be introducing several new products at the SGIA Expo.


Essentra Specialty Tapes plans to highlight its core products at these key industry events, including the following unique tape product lines. Free tape samples will be available for all booth visitors.


Twin Stick®: These double-sided foam tapes feature a permanent adhesive on both sides; they are available in many sizes—in pieces and diameters (coins).


Remo One/Two®: The Remo One family of double-sided foam tapes has a permanent adhesive on one side and a removable adhesive on the other. Remo Two tapes provide a removable adhesive on both sides. These are available in many sizes—in pieces, diameters (coins), or rolls.


Dubl Kote®: This line of double sided foam tapes is ideal for flexible and conformable requirements, such as joining irregular surfaces and can be used on many types of surfaces. It features a permanent adhesive with a strong bond on both sides. Dubl Kote tapes are available in rolls in a variety of sizes; an acrylic version is also offered.


Finger Lift Tapes: These user-friendly tapes feature a release liner with a dry edge on each side of the tape. The liner extends beyond the width of the adhesive strip, allowing the liner to be removed more quickly and easily. Other tapes with flush-edge liners, where the liner and adhesive are the same width, are not as easy to use. This finger lift tape feature is offered in the Essentra tissue, transfer, film, and bag sealing tape families.


In addition, a new high-speed hot melt coater was recently installed by Essentra for manufacturing finger lift tapes in their Forest Park, Illinois facility. The addition of the new state-of-the-art hot melt adhesive coating line allows Essentra to provide the service and quality needed to meet the fast-paced demands of the consumer goods industry. As a result, they now offer 300 standard sizes in stock, available to ship the same day, and the potential for custom solutions with a quick turnaround time.


More information about these products will be available at Essentra’s Booth 212 at the Shopper Marketing Conference and Expo, and at Booth 1237 at the SGIA Expo.
