Double sided adhesive transfer tape
is an unsupported tape which means pressure-sensitive adhesive is pre-applied to a special release liner (the tape has no carrier). ATG transfer tape comes reverse wound on a 1" diameter core and requires the use of an ATG gun to apply it and normal non-ATG transfer tape comes regularly wound on a 3" diameter core. If you are in the market for a double sided transfer tape, some of the leading brands are JVCC, 3M Scotch, Scapa and MacTac.
