Currently the specific double-sided tapes offered in the pack include: Polyken 105C-P Cloth Tape; JVCC DC-4199CS Polyester Film Tape; JVCC DC-1503 Polypropylene Film Tape; JVCC DC-4420LB Clear PVC Film Tape; JVCC DCP-01 and DCP-02 Crepe Paper Tape; JVCC DCP-04 Flatback Paper Tape; JVCC DCT-40R Tissue Tape; JVCC DC-SCRIM-9 Polyester Scrim Tape; JVCC DC-PEF06A Polyethylene Foam Tape; JVCC DC-UHB45FA-G Foamed Acrylic Tape; and JVCC DC-UHB45 Solid Acrylic Foam Tape.
Platypus Designer Duct Tape is now being stocked in 12 patterns which include Argyle, Candy Cane, Denim, Diamond Plate, Grass, Houndstooth, Jolly Roger, Leopard, Paisley, Polka Dot, Wicker and Wood Grain. Also two new patterns for the holidays should be arriving soon which are Snow and Stocking. Its the perfect tape to use for your next duct tape project. The polyethylene coated cloth is 10.5 mils thick and offers 32 ounces per inch of peel adhesion.
2 inch x 30 yard rolls of Shurtape PC-626 Camouflage Duct Tape are now being stocked. It is the first duct tape that features the official digital pattern used for U.S. Army combat uniforms, making it the closest match to soldiers' camouflage. The 30 yard length rolls make it very easy to carry around although we do allow you to still special order the regular 60 yard length rolls. The cloth tape's lusterless film reduces light glare, an advantage for both the military and for hunters. Shurtape PC 626 is an ACU digital camouflage pattern duct tape with high holding power. This high performance, polyethylene coated, waterproof tape is also used for sealing, packaging, waterproofing, holding, camouflaging, sound deadening, covering reflective surfaces, and patching applications.
We've recently added the 1/8 inch wide by 40 foot long sizes of 3M's Scotchcal Reflective Striping Tape to the web site in all 25 colors it comes in. It is a reflective film coated on one side with adhesive which is intended to provide light reflective properties in darkness. The 1/8 inch wide sizes are typically used to create single stripe patterns on vehicles - in order to match existing stripes or to create original striping designs on them. Other uses include commercial vehicle, marine, motorcycle, railroad and bus graphics; and sign graphics. The tape also resists gasoline and chemicals. These tapes are also known as the Scotchlite Reflective Film Series 680 products and they can help improve safety and nighttime visibility.
We've been selling the clear low profile dual lock in several widths and lengths for a while now (see the 3M SJ5470 dual lock product). This is the tape often times used to hold riders' E-Z Pass tags to their car windshields. Recently our converter has started to stock the low profile dual lock in 1-inch wide black also - see 3M SJ4575 dual lock. You can purchase the full 50-yard rolls or you can also purchase the tape in 10-foot pieces instead. For those not familiar with low profile dual lock it is thinner and stronger than other reclosable fasteners like Velcro. There isn't a seperate hook and loop side either; it has just one side that is mated or connected together (both surfaces have plastic mushroom-shaped stems which are joined by pressing them together which firmly locks them into place). They work great for attaching items to car dashboards and windows as well as anywhere else you need a reclosable fastener around the house or garage.
We've had inquiries in the past from customers looking to purchase replacement blades for their Powerseal dispensers. Our distributor has finally started stocking bag trimmer blades for both the Powerseal 7605K and Powerseal 808K as well as the inside roof/cutting blade for the Powerseal 7605K. Both replacement blades are now available for immediate shipment from orders placed on the web site.
3M 9415PC is a translucent polyester film differentially coated with a removable/repositionable, low tack, adhesive on one side (back/liner side) and a permanent, high tack, adhesive on the other (face/exposed side). Unlike the other differentially coated tapes on the web site the removable side on this tape is also repositionable so its good when you need multiple openings and closings. Also its removable low tack side offers only nominal adhesion so its good for paper mailings since it will not cause delamination from most paper stock.
Scapa S301 is a clear UPVC film tape coated on both sides with an exceptionally high tack, high peel, acrylic adhesive system. It offers excellent adhesion even to demanding surfaces such as sports jerseys. It also meets the compositional requirements of FDA regulation 21 CFR175.105 (adhesives) for indirect food contact.
3M 4952 VHB tape is a closed-cell firm acrylic foam which is coated on both sides with a low-surface energy synthetic adhesive. This is the tape in the 3M VHB family best suited to bond to many lower surface energy substrates including many plastics and powder coated paints. The tape offers excellent adhesion, durability and solvent and moisture resistance.
Besides the standard retail-packed 5/8 inch x 10 foot size of 3M SJ4570 Low Profile Dual Lock; 50 yard rolls of 5/8 inch, 1 inch and 2 inch wide are now available for purchase on the web site. For the 1 inch and 2 inch wide sizes our converter is also offering those for sale in 10 foot pieces which they custom cut from the 50 yard rolls. Please note that unlike Velcro which has two different types of sides (hook and loop) which are mated together dual lock mates to itself so typically the roll received by the end user is cut in half and then connected together.
Due to customer demand we've recently added the Powerseal 808K bag sealing dispenser to the web site. It has a wide neck so it handles heavy mil bags better than the Powerseal 760K dispenser which we've had for a while now on the site (but which has a standard size neck). In general these bag sealers are used with UPVC film sealing tape like the JVCC BST-24 to seal produce bags, bakery products, candy items, floral arrangements, industrial parts, newspapers and hardware.
Scapa has recently discontinued their 142 economy-grade duct tape which our converter had log roll stock in so they were able to offer it in wider widths. They've recently starting stocking log rolls of Polyken GP2280 (available in black, blue, green, olive drab, red, silver, white and yellow) and Nashua 395 (offered in brown and tan) as an alternative. Both tapes are 9 mils thick and are for general or multi-purpose use and they have similar specifications.
