Protective paper tape is typically single coated with adhesive to be used for surface protection, graphic application, and identification. The paper carrier allows for the tape to be torn by hand yet also provides a level of rigidity to the material, and the conformability of the tape makes it extremely useful for many industrial tasks.
Strouse converts protective paper tape and other pressure sensitive adhesives to custom sizes, shapes, and formats. Unlike other specialty materials, the rigid carrier of paper tape allows for the material to be accurately converted producing finished components that can meet tight tolerance standards.
As a specialty adhesive tape converter, Strouse provides rolls of tape slit to custom widths or paper tape 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 your assembly process, so whether you apply adhesive paper tape components by hand or using machine automation, Strouse can design a solution that solves a functional need but is also customized to fit in with 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.
Strouse is a 3M Preferred Converter and can source paper tapes from 3M at discounts due to the large bulk orders we often place. We have over 75,000 rolls of material and more than 2,000 individual materials in stock at any given time. If you're looking for a specific material or you aren't sure what material is right for your application, just ask our engineers.
