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.

Special Order Policies & Footnotes:

Special Order Policies

  • Special orders are non-returnable (and non-cancelable if materials have been already ordered or cut before the cancellation request was received).
  • Special order sizes often ship direct from our supplier so will not arrive together with stocked products.

Special Order Minimums

  • Minimum requirements apply because a size may be non-stock.
  • Minimum Quantities: If a particular size has a minimum item requirement, please only order that size in multiples of that minimum (e.g. if the minimum is 12, then use multiples like 12, 24, 36, etc).

Product Description

Jaybird & Mais 2153 Cobird Co-Adhesive Stretch Tape is an economical cohesive designed for everyday needs of the medical professional. Its dry bond formula (the tape only sticks/adheres to itself and not to other surfaces) is great for compression wraps, wound care and pad application. This is the replacement for their old 1953 product. An easy and cost effective way for an athlete to apply a clean, dry pressure wrap after a home ice bath. Also can be used as an underwrap to any Jaybird adhesive taping product for additional skin comfort. Jaybird 2153 has the following features:

  • 5 yard hand tearable rolls.
  • Easy and even tear.
  • Comfortable to the skin.
  • Consistent unwind tension.
  • Conforms easily to anatomical angles.
  • Non-sterile.
  • Cohesive formulation contains Dry Natural Rubber (DNR).
  • Non-woven stretch fabric (Spandex, Viscose and polyester blend).

Please see Jaybird's Taping Techniques reference for the proper way to tape preventative and post-injury applications.

* Multiple cases may be shipped per package in order to minimize the charge for shipping.

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).

Jaybird & Mais 2153 Cobird Co-Adhesive Stretch 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.
1 mil = 1/1000 of an inch
Examples: 1/16 inch = 62.5 mils; 1/32 inch = 31.25 mils
