About Polypropylene Tape

Polypropylene tape is a versatile material used in paint masking and packaging applications. The polypropylene plastic backing provides resistance to solvents or moisture and can withstand high temperatures that are often part of paint processes. The low profile nature of the material makes it ideal for paint masking as it helps to ensure a smooth and minimal or non-existent ridge from a paint edge. The advantage of working with a specialty converter like Strouse is that we can create custom products by laminating the adhesive you need to the backing of the polypropylene film. This ensures you're using the exact products you need for your application.

Converting Polypropylene Tape

Strouse converts polypropylene tape and other pressure sensitive adhesives to custom sizes, shapes, and formats. Strouse has the technology, people, and process with over 3 decades of experience to accurately convert tape into finished components that can meet tight tolerance standards. 

Strouse also provides rolls of polypropylene film slit to custom widths or parts that are cut to custom shapes and dimensions. Finished parts can be provided in multiple formats including parts wound on a roll of liner, parts on singular sheets of liner, or parts as individual pieces with a liner on one or both sides to protect any potentially exposed adhesive. These formats are designed to simplify assembly and packaging processes, so whether you apply the tape by hand or using machine automation, Strouse can design a solution that solves a functional need but also one that is customized to fit within your existing processes.

We work on projects of all types from concepts drawn on a napkin to pre-designed components already spec'd into a project. Our diverse manufacturing capability allows us to provide you the material you need in the exact size, shape, and format required for your design and process while being able to scale for production in a cost-effective manner.
