Double Sided Self Adhesive Fingerlift Tapes

Double sided self adhesive fingerlift tapes feature an extended liner on one or two edges, helping you as the user to apply the tape to your application and remove the liner quickly and easily.

As a manufacturer of double sided fingerlift tapes for over 40 years, we have highly flexible and efficient production capabilities, giving you the option to have almost any combination of adhesive and liner, in nearly any width and length.

Our most popular product solutions include our excellent high tack double sided tape, Avery FT239. We make this to bespoke sizes including:

  • 27mm/33mm x 1500 metre spools
  • 12mm/18mm x 500 metre rolls
  • 27mm/33mm x 500 metre rolls
  • 12mm/18mm x 250 metre rolls
  • 6mm/12mm x 50 metre rolls
  • 12mm/18mm x 50 metre rolls
  • 24mm/30mm x 50 metre rolls

As standard, our fingerlift tapes are available with the liner extended on both sides, but if required, you can have the fingerlift edge positioned on one side only, aka flush edge. This option can be added to to almost any of our carrier supported double sided tissue tapes.

Because the liner is wider than the adhesive, fingerlift tapes are commonly presented with the adhesive/liner size x the length of roll. For example, 6mm adhesive/12mm Liner x length or 6/12 x 50m

These sizes can be customised to meet your application needs, but please contact us if you want to discuss options in more detail.

Our fingerlift tapes can be made in roll lengths ranging from 50 metres to 1000 metres. Fingerlift transfer tapes can be offered in pancake rolls up to 2000 metres in length.

All of our fingerlift tapes can be presented in spool or bobbin wound format in variable lengths according to tape width.

We have standard fingerlift products available in two options:

FT5239 which is a higher coatweight adhesive system and FT7206 FL which is our general purpose option (FT7206 FL). Both of these options are hand tearable for ease of use.

FT7206 is available ex-stock in the following sizes:

  • 6mm/12mm x 50 metres
  • 12mm/18mm x 50 metres
  • 18mm/24mm x 50 metres

Our standard double sided fingerlift tapes are ideal for general purpose bonding, i.e arts, crafts and packaging, brochures, cards, paper and other similar applications.

It’s important to note that there is no ‘one size fits all solution’ to fingerlift tapes, or double sided tapes in general. To ensure that you are using the right product for your application, we would recommend that you try a sample first to ensure suitability.

If your application is more demanding, then you may need a higher performance fingerlift tape to get the results that you need. In this case, please contact us to discuss your requirements further because we have a wide range of higher performance adhesives which may be better suited to your application.

Custom Adhesive Stripe Patterns

Custom adhesive stripe patterns give you the option to build a fingerlift or adhesive-free area into your own laminates. We can manufacture these up to 1000mm wide and in variable patterns.

We specialise in the presentation of fingerlift liners and feature them in many aspects of our finished products. Increasingly, the use of high performance tapes in critical bonding applications means that the ability to remove a protective liner easily and efficiently is a necessity.

Our ability to convert performance adhesives into double sided fingerlift tapes means that the advantage of easy to remove process liners can be added into custom roll presentations and the most complex die cut shapes and composite constructions.
