Pressure Sensitive Tape Base

High-performance papers for a broad range of specialty tape and label applications. Monadnock manufactures tape bases polymer-reinforced flatback base stocks for pressure-sensitive adhesive tapes and labels.

These bases range from 3 mil to 15 mils in thickness and are used as carrier and protective sheets for vinyl sign making as well as a protective masking for wood, glass, and metal surfaces during shipping, handling, and final installation.

These tape bases have a high level of polymer saturation resulting in high elongation, a barrier for high tack adhesives, and superior runnability
