Adhesive Transfer Tapes Image

Adhesive Transfer Tapes

A common type of tape that we convert at JBC Technologies is adhesive transfer tape.  Unlike a double-coated tape, which has a carrier lined on either side with an adhesive, transfer tapes have no carrier.  The rubber or acrylic-based pressure-sensitive adhesive is coated onto a removable release liner, typically made of film or paper.  Transfer tapes are typically thinner than double-coated tapes, but because there is no carrier, they tend to be more conformable.  Industry use cases range from electronic components and displays to membrane switches, automotive, appliances, medical devices, and more.

Types of transfer tape

As with double-coated tapes, there are many different types of transfer tapes with both permanent and removable bonds, all applicable for different situations. Examples include:

  • Medical Adhesive Transfer Tape
  • High-Performance Adhesive Transfer Tape
  • Optically Clear Transfer Tape
  • High-Temperature Transfer Tape
  • Low Surface Energy Transfer Tape
  • Very High BondTransfer Tape
  • Double Linered Adhesive Transfer Tape

How do transfer tapes differ from double coated tapes?

When compared to double-coated tapes, transfer tapes tend to be thinner, more conformable, and more apt to perform at higher temperatures.
