What is Polyethylene Tape, PE Tape?
Polyethylene (PE) tapes are a highly effective alternative to cloth tapes, particularly in harsh conditions and low temperature environments, providing a high-performance solution for end users. These are specialist adhesive tapes that can combine a multitude of performance characteristics including abrasion resistance, excellent adhesion (particularly to PE film), good strength and reliable bonding to a wide range of surfaces and substrates. In addition, many PE tapes offer clean peel and additional characteristics such as UV performance.
Polyethylene (PE) tape is used extensively for a full range of multi-purpose, industrial assembly applications ranging from general masking to heavy duty surface protection. PE tapes are also widely used for barrier containment, lane marking, and social distancing per global COVID-19 public health directives. In addition, Scapa's specialist range includes the new Polyflex Plus PE tapes with fire retardancy and UV performance for more specialist applications. Examples of applications where Scapa's PE tapes are used include:
