Nominal Tape Widths vs Actual Widths

Nominal vs. Actual Widths Zoom In

Tape rolls are cut to standard tape industry metric widths of approx. 24mm per 1-inch of nominal width ordered. As a result ACTUAL tape widths are normally 5% narrower than the NOMINAL width shown in inches. Examples:

  • 1" Nominal width = 15/16" (24mm) Actual width
  • 2" Nominal width = 1-7/8" (48mm) Actual width
  • 3" Nominal width = 2-13/16" (72mm) Actual width

Note that tape rolls are NOT guaranteed to be splice-free.

Product Description

Pro Tapes Pro-Measurement Ruler Tape is a Kraft paper tape with adhesive backing which can be used as a repositionable ruler. It is a yellow paper tape printed black with markings. It is great for tough situations where a tape measure will not fit.

On the Imperial (English) version of the tape every 1/8 of an inch is marked and it is numbered 1 through 12 at each inch designation. It then repeats itself every 12 inches. The 1 inch wide size gives you room off to the side to write, e.g. you can put a strip down and then mark off foot designations at every 12 inches - 1', 2', 3', ....

The Metric version of the tape is numbered 1 through 10 at each cm designation. It then repeats itself every 10 cm. There are alternating markings on the Metric tape - for the first 10 cm it is marked at every mm designation and then for the next 10 cm it is marked at every 1/2 cm designation (after the 1/2 cm markings there will be a perforation in the tape and a small gap (about 2mm) before the next run of mm markings begins).

Please note that because paper tape elongates a bit it will stretch over longer distances. It is perforated every 12 inches because for each foot it will be very close, but for longer measuring runs you may need to match it up with a metal tape measure to be sure when it is stuck down it isn't stretched at all or the tape can be un-perforated and each foot set down to match.

AlertRoll Sizes/Widths:

Please note that tape rolls are NOT guaranteed to be splice- free. Tape rolls are typically cut to standard tape industry metric-cut sizes - or approx 5% narrower than the nominal size (i.e. 24mm per 1-inch of nominal width ordered).

Please contact us to inquire about pricing for full-cut widths (e.g. a 6 inch roll cut to exactly 152mm instead of 144mm).

Pro Tapes Pro-Measurement Ruler Tape
hot melt rubber (synthetic)
Offers the widest range of application flexibility available. Exhibits excellent processing performance whether manually or automatically applied. Has superior tensile strength, adhesion properties and holding force which ensures consistent, reliable seals. Hot melt adhesive will bond faster to a surface which is referred to as quick-grab or quick-stick. It typically has higher tack (will feel stickier to the touch), but is also softer. It has lower heat resistance, shear resistance, and sometimes UV resistance than an acrylic adhesive. NOTE: it is called hot melt because the adhesive is applied hot by the manufacturer and then hardens as it cools (you do not need to apply heat to the tape yourself).
natural rubber
Properties are similar to that of hot melt rubber, but natural rubber often holds where other adhesives won't (recycled fibers, dust, cold, heat and heavy loads). It provides good overall adhesion and moisture resistance.
Offer excellent performance, especially for applications in temperatures less than 40°F and greater then 120°F. It provides excellent clarity, has high shear strength, is usually more permanent/durable even when exposed to moisture, and it ages well over extended periods in fluorescent and sunlight. Since it remains clear for the life of the application and does not yellow over time it is ideal for applications such as sealing white cartons. While it has good initial adhesion it does take 24-48 hours to cure and to achieve its maximum bond strength (has gradual adhesion buildup). Another difference between hot melt rubber and acrylic adhesive is if you fold tape over making the two adhesive sides touch the acrylic adhesive will remain attached to the carrier (e.g. paper, film) while a hot melt adhesive will stick to itself and pull off of the carrier. It is the best choice for clarity, UV resistance and aging characteristics.
Is great for extreme temperature applications since silicone adhesive can work in continuous operating temperatures from -100°F to 500°F. They also exhibit good chemical resistance, retain electrical properties, and remove cleanly with little or no residue.
zinc oxide
Zinc oxide based adhesive formula is a skin-friendly adhesive which is commonly used on sports medicine tapes.
Thickness, AKA caliper or gauge, refers to the distance from one surface of a tape backing, or adhesive, to the other.
1 mil = 1/1000 of an inch
Examples: 1/16 inch = 62.5 mils; 1/32 inch = 31.25 mils
