Product Description

Do you need to measure something that's difficult to measure? Whether it's fabric or an oddly-shaped gourd that you're decorating, Pro Tapes Pro-Measurement Ruler Tape can come in handy. This Kraft paper tape with an adhesive backing is easily repositionable, making it ideal as a ruler or tape measure alternative.

Pro Tapes Ruler Tape is highly visible yellow paper tape with clear black printed ruler markings. Use it in tough applications where a tape measure isn't practical. This tape is conveniently rolled on a 3-inch diameter core, has an easy unwind, and will remove cleanly from most surfaces.

You can choose either Imperial (English) or Metric versions of this tape. On the Imperial version, each 1/8 of an inch is marked and is numbered 1 through 12, and then repeats. The larger 1-inch width size allows space for writing. For example, you can indicate each foot for added convenience when making a long measurement.

The Metric tape version is numbered 1 through 10 at every centimeter (cm) designation, and then repeats. The first 10 cm are marked off at every millimeter (mm) and then for the next 10 cm the tape is marked for each .5 cm designation. After the set of .5 cm markings, there is a perforation in the tape plus a small gap of approximately 2 mm before the next series of millimeter markings begin.

Product Applications

  • Mark irregularly shaped objects
  • Perform inspections easily
  • Create growth charts in a classroom to teach measuring
  • Take pictures of sections that need measurements for tracking and documentation purposes
  • Use on fabrics when placing bead embroidery, sequins, etc.
  • Hang pictures and decorations around the house without having to mark-up walls
  • DIY projects in your home or business

Measuring Note: Since paper tape can elongate when stretched over long distances, Pro Tapes Ruler Tape is perforated and can be easily separated and placed every 12 inches. For longer measuring runs you may need to match the tape to a metal tape measure to be sure the measurement markings are not off slightly due to the elongation.

Alert Roll Sizes/Widths

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.

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.
acrylic
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.
silicone
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
