Spandex extends its double sided tapes portfolio to include over 20 products from industry leading brands

All products are included in a unique Double Sided Tapes Product Selection Guide which aims to help customers match the right tape for each job

Zurich, Switzerland – 8 November 2016– Spandex, the one-stop supplier of innovative solutions to the digital printing and signmaking industries extends its successful portfolio of double sided tapes to include ranges from the world’s leaders in tape development and manufacturing including Orafol, 3M, Avery Dennison and Spandex’s own brand, ImagePerfect. All products are now in stock and available for next-day delivery.

The launch of the extended range is supported by a unique Double Sided Tapes Product Selection Guide which presents over 20 tapes and helps customers through the tape selection process by explaining their main technical characteristics and the factors graphic producers should consider when choosing tapes for specific jobs.

Chris Holmes, Category Manager at Spandex says ‘With so many choices in the marketplace, choosing what type of double sided adhesive tape to use can become overwhelming. We developed the range and the Guide to help make it easier for customers to choose the right tape. This choice is important because it can provide multiple benefits that will help to maximise productivity and profitability. Using the incorrect tape can lead to issues such as a sub-standard application, which, if repeated too often has the potential to impact on our customers’ reputation’.

The full range includes the following categories:

Acrylic Foam Mounting Tapes – highly conformable tapes which provide ultimate bond strength for uneven, textured and rough surfaces and are best suited to medium-high energy surfaces.

Foam Mounting Tapes – very thick and highly conformable tapes which are durable against high temperatures and help to disperse and evenly distribute stress.

Film Based Mounting Tapes – thinner tapes suited to everyday application involving flat and smooth surfaces or materials and offers good general surface compatibility.

Double Sided Transfer Tapes – transfer tapes that have a release liner making it perfect for joining or for applications where structure is not required.

‘With the new additions, we offer our customers a comprehensive, high quality and competitively priced double sided tapes range. As a one-stop supplier, customers know that they can also come to Spandex to purchase everything they need to prepare and install high quality graphics from tapes and accessories through to specialist materials and print and finishing equipment’, concludes Chris.

Spandex offers over 20 different types of double sided adhesive tapes coupled with the best service and products for our customers’ specific needs.
