Various rolls of Film tapes

Film tapes come in several variations. At Cheever we work with several different manufactures and customers to provide these tapes. Polyester film tape is one of most common tapes that can be used for splicing and applications where chemical resistance and or/or clean removal is necessary. This is a Polyester backing with an Acrylic (transparent) adhesive in your choice of color.

With so many choices in a Tape configuration from acrylic, silicone, rubber-based, single or double side, coated, un-coated etc.. We thrive at the challenge of helping you work through these options for your next project. We have an array of different choices to help you define these decisions, all while giving you the option of having us hold Inventory for you. Below are some of our offerings and where they are commonly used. All though the list is not all inclusive so please contact us for just a quick question or to discuss your new project - we are listening!!
