DP 401 Professional Grade Double-Coated Polyester Film Tape
Professional grade double-coated polyester film tape designed for polyethylene (PE) foam fabrication and lamination processes, including lamination processes that do not use heat. DP 401 is ideal for packaging applications that require cushioning, protection or stabilization of contents, and can also be used with die-cuts, gaskets, POP merchandising and shelf displays. This clear tape features a differential adhesive system that allows it to stick quickly and eliminate the edge lift, tunneling and need for extra adhesive commonly associated with applying tape to PE foam.

“We had high expectations for DP 401. We needed a double-sided tape that offered a good bond to low-density PE foam – something that would eliminate the need to prime the material. And, our expectations are being exceeded! The bond will tear the foam before the tape can be removed.” – Brett Matthews, VP of Operations, Diversified Foam, Inc.
