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.

Custom Tape Widths

Customer Jan 11, 2018
QUESTION: What color is the adhesive part on both side?
ANSWER: Medium Gray, all the way through (front/back/center). 
Customer Oct 29, 2017
QUESTION: When the red protective tape is removed what color is the sticky part?
Customer Oct 17, 2017
QUESTION: Can I use this tape on my stucco wall?
ANSWER: This tape is best for smooth surfaces such as glass, metal, wood, etc. I wouldn't recommend that you use this on a stucco surface because it is uneven. Maybe it would work if the item was light weight like light weight fabric.
Customer Oct 03, 2017
QUESTION: Would this work to stick carpet treads onto wood stairs?
ANSWER: Yes, strong adhesive, even use outdoors, works quite well.
Customer Aug 20, 2017
QUESTION: If I remove the tape in the future, will it remove the paint as well? I want to mount a solar wall light to my house.
ANSWER: I used the Scotch 4011 Exterior Mounting tape to mount a solar motion detector light on the exterior side of my home. I can tell you this is excellent exterior tape as my light has not slipped or moved at all. My big problem would have been the tape loosing its adhesiveness and my light falling. That has not happened. I would highly recommend this tape to anyone.

User Reviews

3M 4011 Scotch Permanent Outdoor Mounting Tape
Made in the USA
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
