Anti Slip Tapes: Appropriate for a Diverse Range of Industries

April 12, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 137

Adhesive tapes, also popularly known as sticky tapes or anti slip tapes, find varied applications in modern day industries, including building and construction, automotive, marine, glass and glazing, medical, aerospace, electronics, signs and labels, sports and leisure, etc. The importance of these tapes cannot be underestimated, primarily because they are not only a very safe and economical choice, but they are also greatly functional and durable. Their cost and time efficiency also greatly contributes towards their overall appeal and popularity. It is better to invest in these means rather than spending a bomb on litigations and compensations arising out of accidents and injuries.

A non slip tape can be used to serve a wide variety of purposes. They can be used for bonding, cushioning, securing, masking, protecting and repairing. They create an anti slip surface that greatly minimises risks and hazards. Because these tapes quickly attract attention, it is safe to use them to mark aisles, safety equipment and dangerous equipment parts, thus reducing the risk of accidents. Some variants of these tapes include photoluminescence and reflective tapes, which glow in the dark, guaranteeing extra visual safety during the night or under low light conditions. These special adhesive tapes can also help builders and manufacturers to meet DDA Regulations (Disability Discrimination Act 1995) and document M of building regulations.

When it comes to special adhesive tapes, quality and standards are very important. The anti slip tape should have a good initial tack, high strength, good conformability, should provide maximum slip resistance, and should be immune to heavy traffic, water, oil and grease. Some other aspects that should be considered before opting for these tapes include dimensional stability, chemical resistance, and maintenance of electrical and physical properties over a wide range of temperature. If a tape cannot maintain its adhesive properties in high temperatures, it might totally fail to meet the needs and requirements of industries where high temperatures are standard.

These tapes are available in a wide selection of colours, textures, sizes, widths and shapes, which makes it very easy to find one according to the needs and specific demands of an industry or situation. They can be chosen to either stand out or blend in with your flooring. You can also purchase them in rolls, sheets, tiles and cleats for easy application or installation. Sometimes, certain industries might have very specific tape requirements, which would involve customisation of the tapes to fulfil the specific necessities.
