Home Splicing Tape

Splicing tape is a splicer for web press and paper mill that is used for continuous production. The tape to join 2 rolls of materials to increase the length or provide continuity of substrate. It works by “pasting” an expiring roll onto the next so that the press does not have to stop.

Zero-speed splicing tape

Normally splicing tapes are zero-speed splicing tapes that structure is similar to the normal Double-sided tape or Single-sided tape. They are repulpable tape that use to paper mill production line. It operates while the expiring roll and the new roll are both stationary.

In paper mill production line, Repulpable Splicing Tapes are water soluble modified acrylic adhesive, coated on a repulpable paper carrier. Repulpable means that it can be recycled. The repulpable tapes backing and glue can be dissolve in water.

Single-Sided Repulpable Splice Tape

General purpose tape for manual splice roll changes and fixing roll ends.
Butt splices, core starting, end taping.

Double-Sided Repulpable Splice Tape

Used in overlap splicing, manual splices, core starting, and roll finishing applications.

High-speed splicing tape

High-speed splicing tapes are used to make a manufacturing process continual, joining the end of a web of material to the beginning of a new web, or roll of material. This process of splicing the paper reels allows operators to avoid lengthy downtimes and run continuous production without having to re-thread the material through their equipment.

In Printing industry, commonly used splicng tapes are Web press splicing tapes, Flexographic printing splicing tapes, Releaseliner splicing tapes. They are provide superior adhesion to “difficult-to-adhere-to” surfaces such as plastic films, polycoated paper and boards, and other low-energy surfaces.
