Type
           
   Your choices are...         
   Single-Sided       With single-sided tapes and films, only one side is coated with adhesive. 
   Double-Sided       With double-sided tapes and films, both sides of the backing or carrier are coated with adhesive. Two different pressure sensitive adhesives (PSAs) can be used on each side. This is useful for applications that involve bonding together very dissimilar materials. Double-sided products are supplied with a coated release liner. 
   Transfer       Transfer tape is a highly versatile product that consists of a thin adhesive film without a carrier or backing. It can be readily transferred to most dry surfaces from a peel-away release liner.

Configuration
   Backing:      The carrier or backing is a relatively thin, flexible material to which an adhesive is applied.
   Your choices are...         
   Cloth - Woven  Fabric       Cloth products incorporate woven cloth or a fabric layer(s) for reinforcement, improved strength, heat resistance, or electrical properties. 
   Cloth - Felt / Non-woven       Felt or non-woven tape, film, or laminates are applied to substrates to prevent scratching. 
   Glass / Fiberglass       Tape and film products are reinforced with fiberglass, fiberglass composite material, or a glass layer. 
   Filament       Filament is generically referred to as strapping tape. Filament tape draws its strength from thousands of individual filaments woven into yarns that are embedded in adhesive on the tape's backing. 
   Fluoropolymer       Fluoropolymer films, layers, or coatings consist of plastics such as polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE) or polyvinylidene fluoride (PVDF). Fluoropolymer coatings are used in applications that require superior chemical resistance, good dielectric properties, and water and stain repellent characteristics. Fluoropolymers are also used in applications where the material handled must not stick to the belt, fabric, or laminate. Polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE) is an insoluble compound that exhibits a high degree of chemical resistance and a low coefficient of friction. It is sometimes marketed in proprietary classes of materials such as Teflon®, a registered trademark of DuPont Dow Elastomers. 
   Foam       Adhesive-coated polyolefin foams include an adhesive that is protected by a liner in the form of a tape, film, or laminate.  
   Metal Foil / Sheet       Metal foil tapes have aluminum, aluminum-reinforced, and lead backings 
   Paper       Paper or flatback products have a paper backing. 
   PET / Polyester       Polyethylene teraphthalate (PET_ / polyester products use a PET or polyester backing in the form of tape, film, or laminate. 
   Plastic / Polymer       Plastic products incorporate one or more plastic layers, or consist of plastic film or sheets that can be clear or colored, printed or plain, single-layered or multilayered, and combined with materials such as aluminum and paper. There are two general categories of plastics: thermoplastics and thermosets. 
   Polyimide (e.g., Kapton®)       Polyimide film maintains excellent physical, mechanical, chemical, and electrical properties over a wide range of physical environments. Kapton® tape is made of polyimide film and a heat-resistant, silicone adhesive. Kapton is a registered trademark of DuPont Teijin Films. Polyimide films are very useful substrates for the manufacture of flexible circuit materials. 
   PVC / Vinyl       Polyvinyl chloride (PVC) / vinyl products use a vinyl or PVC backing in the form of a tape, film, or laminate. 
   Rubber       Products use a rubber backing in the form of a tape, film, or laminate. 
   Silicone       Products use a silicone backing in the form of a tape, film, or laminate. 
   Specialty / Other       Other unlisted backing materials.

   Adhesive:       
   Your choices are...         
   Epoxy       Epoxy resins are adhesives that exhibit high strength and low shrinkage during curing. Epoxies are known for their toughness and resistance to chemical and environmental damage. 
   Hot Melt / Heat Activated       Heat activated, thermally activating, or heat bond adhesives become tacky or sticky when heat is applied. The adhesive may soften, but not necessarily melt. Hot melt adhesives can be repeatably softened and melted by heat, and hardened or set by cooling. Cooling allows the removal or repositioning of parts during assembly.  
   Pressure Sensitive (PSA)       Pressure sensitive adhesives (PSAs) or contact adhesives are aggressively and permanently tacky at room temperature in dry (solvent free) form. They adhere firmly to a variety of dissimilar surfaces upon contact, requiring only the application of finger or hand pressure. PSAs do not require water, solvent, or heat activation in order to exert a strong adhesive force on materials such as paper, plastic, glass, wood, cement, and metal. PSAs have a sufficiently cohesive holding and elastic nature so that despite their aggressive tackiness, they can be manipulated by hand and removed from smooth surfaces without leaving a residue. In terms of general trade usage, leading tape manufacturers do not sanction the extension of the term “pressure sensitive” to include tapes and adhesives just because they are sticky (e.g., fly-paper), or just because they adhere or cohere. 
   Rubber       Rubber-based adhesives provide highly flexible bonds and are usually based on butadiene-styrene, butyl, polyisobutylene, or nitrile compounds. 
   Silicone       Silicone adhesives and sealants have a high degree of flexibility and very high temperature resistance. 
   Specialty / Other       Other unlisted adhesive types. 
   Acrylic       Acrylic adhesives provide excellent environmental resistance and faster setting times than other resin systems.

Performance Features
           
   Your choices are...         
   Anti-static / ESD Control       Tapes or film products have anti-static, static dissipating, or electrostatic discharge (ESD) control features. Typically, ESD control products have conductive, friction reducing, or ionizing characteristics. 
   Dielectric / Insulating       Dielectric tapes are used as membrane dielectrics in multilayer capacitors. These tapes consist of an acrylic polymer mixed with a dielectric solid. 
   Electrically Conductive       Electrically conductive products can conduct electricity and provide protection from electrostatic discharge (ESD). They may also provide shielding from electromagnetic interference (EMI) or radio frequency interference (RFI). Conductive tapes and films are used in electrical heating elements and other electronics applications. 
   EMI / RFI Shielding       EMI or RFI shielding products can provide protection or shielding from electromagnetic interference (EMI) or radio frequency interference (RFI). Most shielding products use a conductive material to surround the device or equipment requiring shielding. Conductive EMI shielding works on the electric field portion of the electromagnetic wave or interference. Magnetic shielding is less common. 
   Permanent       Once applied, products become permanently bonded to the substrate. 
   Reflective       Reflective films are used to control radiant heat or enhance display brightness. Reflective tapes are highly visible and provide warnings about unsafe conditions. Reflective tapes are used in rotating or moving equipment to trigger proximity sensors, or enable a tachometer to make readings. 
   Protective Tape       Products are used to form a protective layer on the substrate, and to provide protection against wear, corrosion, dust, water, electrical discharges, oil or grease, and other environmental conditions. 
   Removable       Removable tapes can be applied and then removed without damaging the substrate, but not necessarily reused or repositioned. 
   Safety / Flagging       Safety film and tape products are used for flagging, or as barricade tape. Reflective tapes are often used in safety applications. 
   Thermally Insulating / Insulative       Thermally insulating or insulative products, such as structural insulative panels (SIP), provide insulation from heat. 
   Transparent       Transparent products allow the transmission of light. A tape is rated as transparent if 10-point type can be read easily when the tape is applied directly over it. 
   UV / Weather Resistant       Weather resistant products are suitable for outdoor use and resistant to ultraviolet (UV) light, cold, heat, water or other weather conditions. 
   Other       Other unlisted or proprietary features. 
   Search Logic:      All products with ANY of the selected attributes will be returned as matches. Leaving all boxes unchecked will not limit the search criteria for this question; products with all attribute options will be returned as matches.
