Polyken 105C-P Multi-Purpose Double Coated Carpet Tape [Paper Liner]
Before ordering, please read the "Product Description & Specs" tab content for more information about this item.
Depending on if our converter is cutting the rolls themselves from a log or getting them pre-slit from Polyken (Berry Plastics) the rolls will either be on a plain white core or on a Polyken core. Also due to the non-elastic properties of the paper liner vs. the flexible cloth the 105C-P may show gaps in the roll when they are cut to width which does not in any way affect the physical properties of the tape.
Polyken 105C-P Multi-Purpose Double Coated Carpet Tape [Paper Liner] is a high quality, double-sided cloth tape on a white paper liner used for carpet hold down and mounting (used to replace tack strips). Even though the tape is designed to remove adhesive-residue free it still offers 40 ounces per inch of peel adhesion so some customers alternatively use the tape as a type of lint roller to pull up loose residue from a surface.
Polyken 105C-P Tape is supplied on a paper liner instead of a standard film liner. The paper liner is typically easier to remove although it may have a tendency to rip when applying the tape across large areas, whereas a film liner would not. Because of Polyken 105C-P's cloth carrier and its ability to remove without leaving adhesive residue behind from most surfaces this tape is also sometimes referred to as double-sided gaffers tape. Low VOC content and can contribute toward satisfying EQ Credit 4.1 (Low Emitting Materials) under LEED®.
Note: Before applying this double-coated tape to a surface area, first test it in a small, inconspicuous area to ensure that it can be removed as desired. This tape is designed to not leave adhesive residue behind. However, depending on certain conditions such as chemical cleaners used on the floor, length of time and the substrate's composition, it may still pull up loose debris or finish from the surface.

Nominal Tape Widths vs Actual Widths
5% narrower than the NOMINAL width shown in inches. Examples:
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
- 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.
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).
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 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
