Pressure sensitive adhesive tape is a self-sticky glue tape, called seal tape, or packaging tape with substrates like fabrics, plastic films, or paper. It has wide use in garments, boxes, homes, offices, and industries. We use it alone as an adhesive. But on more occasions, we coat it on various substrates. Then, process it into strips, and roll it into rolls of pressure-sensitive tapes. When you need to use it, tear off a strip. And press it lightly on the place to be glued, and it will stick. When you don’t need it, you can also peel it off. It’s just like sticking medical adhesive plaster.
It is a special type of tape. And it includes pressure-sensitive adhesive, substrate, primer, backside treatment, etc. Pressure-sensitive adhesive is the most important component of the tape. So, its role is to impart pressure-sensitive adhesive properties to the tape. The primer is to increase the bonding strength of PSA and substrate. When in use, press lightly to bond the tape to the surface of the adherent.
Custom pressure sensitive adhesive tape
We wholesale and make the custom adhesive tapes. Besides, it is ideal for packaging, shipping, factories, stores, offices, boxes, etc. So, you can customize the color, size, types of it with printed logos. Meanwhile, we can print patterns, pictures, websites, social links, and others on it. So, if you have any requests, you can tell us. And we can implement one-to-one support for you.
Features of pressure-sensitive adhesive(PSA) tape
- It will not pollute the adherent after peeling off. We can re-correct it when we paste it in the wrong way. And we can reuse it many times. In addition, it has excellent oil resistance, solvent & water resistance;
- Easy to operate. It can improve production efficiency and product aesthetics.
- It is not easy to break. And it has high transparency, good weather & heat resistance.
- It is non-toxic, odorless, and tasteless. So it is suitable for food packaging.
- We can take it as a partial replacement. For traditional screws, rivets, welding, and other mechanical fixation.
- It has an important effect on product weight reduction and cost reduction.

Various types of PSA tapes
Archiving tape is similar to clear office tape. The use of a low-acid adhesive will not degrade the surface to which it is attached. So, this prevents damage to documents during long-term storage.
Carton sealing tape
Carton sealing tape is known as “packaging tape“. And it is made of polypropylene or polyester. It is a transparent or opaque packing tape. Then, it is perfect for shipping packages on the inner or outer box. In general, it is 2 inches (48 mm) or 3 inches (72 mm) wide.
Drafting tape is similar to masking tape. But it is less sticky. So, it can be removed without damage. Or leaving a residue on paper or other fragile surfaces. And the pH is kept at 7 so as not to damage the substrate.
Double-sided tape has adhesive on both sides of the backing material. And we use it to join two surfaces together.
We call it an electrical insulating tape or insulating tape. And it is suitable for the insulation of various resistance parts. Then, it suits bundling, securing, overlapping, repairing, or sealing in industrial processes. So we can say it has an important role in our daily life.
It is an adhesive tape to cover areas on which paint is not wanted. Masking tape takes masking paper and pressure-sensitive glue as the main raw materials. We apply pressure-sensitive adhesive to the textured paper. Then, a roll of adhesive tape is made with a non-stick material on the other side.
Masking tape is resistant to high temperatures and has high adhesion. Besides, it is soft and compliant. And it will not leave any residue after tearing.
Surgical pressure sensitive tape
Surgical pressure-sensitive tapes use cloth, paper, non-woven fabrics, polythene films, soft polyvinyl chloride, etc. Then, they coat a non-toxic bed-sensitive adhesive containing the drug.
The tape has a good erection force on the skin. Therefore, it will not irritate the skin, and it has good breathability.
Transparent office tape
We all know the transparent/clear office tape. Transparent tape is suitable in offices and homes. What material is the transparent tape made of? The materials of backing include OPP, PVC, PET, PE, or BOPP.
Adhesive materials are natural (synthetic) rubber and Acrylic. In addition, we can customize and print the brand logo and company name on it.
FAQs of pressure sensitive adhesive tape
1. Is pressure-sensitive tape hypoallergenic?
-No, it is not hypoallergenic. The tape is an adhesive with some pressure-sensitive ingredients in it. And it means it is sensitive to pressure. That is, the greater the external pressure, the stronger the adhesiveness of the tape. Thus, we do not use it to prevent allergies.
2. What is the PSA tape used for?
-We mainly use it in packaging, office, electrical insulation, medical hygiene, labeling, marking, etc.
