About Us

Experts in converting pressure sensitive adhesives

For over 35 years, we have provided standard and bespoke adhesive bonding solutions for a variety of simple and complex applications.

We can convert almost any of our raw materials to meet your desired format or presentation. Whether it’s a standard roll of tape or a bespoke and innovative construction designed to your specification we can help you to enhance or add value to your product, process or application.

Technical Tapes, Technical Solutions

Most of us know that a double sided tape is sticky and bonds things together, but there are a number of factors that we have to assess before providing you with the right solution. These include temperature, UV, weathering and load and any of these can affect how a double sided tape will perform.

The right solution can make all the difference in ensuring that your product or application performs to the highest quality without failing.

Our double sided tapes contain some of the most advanced adhesive technology. In some cases they can match or outperform mechanical fixings such as welds, screws and rivets. This can save you on time, cost and labour because a double sided tape offers you the benefit of an instant bond and lightweight, easy application.


Tangent started life in 1980 and has proudly been a family run business ever since.

Our passion has always been to help people solve problems and we saw the early advances in double sided tape technology.
