Perm / Peel Tape

At UK Industrial Tapes we produce our High Tack / Low Tack double sided Polyester Tape. We manufacture this on 1040mm wide logs meaning this can be cut to any required width, the most popular being 12mm, 15mm, 25mm and 30mm.

Also known as Perm / Peel, or product code 3220, this tape is fast becoming one of the most popular double sided tapes in our range with the point of sale and poster mounting industries.

Due to the low tack adhesive on one side the 3220 product is ideal for application where temporary use is required, allowing for the  removal of tape leaving zero residue on the applied surface. The high tack adhesive will ensure your item stays in place for the duration of your promotion or display. Our Perm / Peel tape is clear showing no sign of adhesion for all displays.

Today is the Day UK Industrial Tapes turn 18 years old. The years have been fantastic to us and the company has seen substantial growth.

Brian our Managing Director brought over his knowledge and experience from working with another Manufacturer and Launched UK Industrial Tapes 1st April 1997. In the beginning it was Brian and a small team producing our range of tapes we started trading with. Brian saw what the market needed and Launched the Picture Framing range and then developed products to be used for the Glass, Glazing and Construction Industry.

In 2003 Brian launched POS Tapes to supply the market with specialist adhesive tapes, foam pads, hanging solutions and both flexible and ridgid parts for POS applications. POS Tapes is now a large part of the business serving over 1,000 Customers both High Street brands and Distributors across the UK, Europe and America.

With growth every year the Stix2 team are going from strength to strength and have a customer base over 3,000 who regularly purchase stock and promote the range.

Due to growth it was time to move and in 2010 the company moved from Team Valley Trading Estate to our current HQ, Brumwell House, Throckley, Newcastle Upon Tyne, NE15 9EW. With over 20,000 Square feet. This allowed us to both produce and store all our products to make this immediately available for our customers.  In our production department we have; Automatic log slitters, Ident automatic rotary converting machines, Automatic re-wind machines, Automatic shrink and roll labeling lines, Screen printing process and a contract packing department.  We have grown from 3 people in 1997 to a team of 40 in 2015.
