Twin Tape for Print and Display

Twin Tape, a commonly used expression within the print and display industries.
UK Industrial Tapes has a range of double sided / Twin tapes designed specifically for these industries;

Our 7001 and 7003 high performance tape is available in a range of sizes with vast log stock allowing for quick service. We also offer the industries favourite, Nitto 500. The Nitto 500 along with our 7003 are the strongest hand applied Twin tapes currently available.

NEW for 2016 UK Industrial Tapes has decided to launch our 7001 high strength twin tape with the option of a finger-lift liner due to popular demand. Large printers are having more and more problems finishing some folders / units simply because the industry standard finger lift tape currently available isn’t suitable for laminated or UV varnished board.

If you are using a double sided tape for making dump bins or any other POS / POP displays and it isn't the Nitto 500, 7001 or 7003 please contact us on 0191 2697810 or for free samples and pricing.
