UNDERSTANDING TAPES
 
As a single source supplier, Movers Warehouse's ability to furnish a wide range of pressure sensitive tape products has enhanced our value to our distributors.  We are proud of the progress we have made, and pledge a continuation of our performance in this area.

Movers Warehouse was established as a cost effective alternative to 3M and other major producers.  Our steady growth over the years is a testimony to the quality of our products, the caliber of our sales representatives, and adherence to a strong distributor policy.

Adhesive Tapes

Masking Tape - is a type of adhesive tape made of easy-to-tear paper backed with a relatively weak adhesive.  It is used mainly in painting, to mask off areas that shouldn't be painted.  The adhesive is the key element to its usefulness, as it allows the tape to be removed without stripping off newly-applied paint.
 
Packaging Tapes - MWI's  carton sealing tapes feature a non-yellowing and UV resistant acrylic based adhesive system.  Acrylic carton sealing tapes maintain their adhesive properties better and longer; they perform better at temperature extremes.  They are more resistant to ageing, weathering, sunlight and discoloration than hot melt tapes.
 
Adhesive Tapes - is an adhesive-coated fastening tape used for temporary or, in some cases, permanent joining.  Single-sided tapes allow joining of two overlapping or adjoining materials, while double-sided tape (adhesive on both sides) allows joining of two items back-to-back.

Aisle Marking Tape - is designed for industrial, commercial and recreational safety marking applications.  Used to identify aisles, steps, equipment and potentially hazardous areas.

Aluminum Foil Tape - is coated with an aggressive, high temperature acrylic adhesive system and are designed for superior conformability in vapor sealing of fiberglass duct board, sheet metal ducts & FSK systems.
 
Cable Tiesis a product that quickly and tightly secure without slipping.  Our Cable Ties self locking head assures reliability while holding loads tight. MWI's cable ties are made at superior quality 6/6 nylon and are available in lengths ranging from 4" to 48" in tensile strengths of miniature, standard, light heavy, and heavy duty.
 
Double Coated Tapeis a domestic pressure sensitive, water-clear, solid acrylic tape system designed to provide a superior bond between a variety of substrates.  The tape possesses a uniform high-tack acrylic adhesive on both surfaces and will bond to most clean, dry, oil-free substrates.

Duct Tape
Polyethylene-coated cloth tapes are durable that can be used for a very wide range of applications.  Noted for their water, chemical and abrasion resistance.  Polyethylene-coated cloth tapes can be used for masking, sealing, packaging, bundling and other general purpose applications.
 
Electrical Insulating TapeAll purpose such as coil / transformer insulation, inter-phase insulation, outer wrap for coils and capacitors, harness wrap, lead anchoring, slot edging, wrapping wire pull-outs in stick transformer.

Filament Strapping Tape - MWI's Filament Strapping tape is an uni-directional, fiberglass strand reinforced, film backed, rubber based pressure sensitive strapping tape.

Glass Cloth / Polyesterprovides heat stable insulation for hot spots.  The woven electrical grade cloth backing is recommended where resistance to high temperature and maintenance of mechanical strength is required.  The tape has excellent thermal stability, high adhesion, and high tensile strength.

Polypropylene Strapping TapeAn economical alternative to filament strapping tapes for most of your palletizing, bundling and unitizing applications.  Properly applied tape shrinks around loads and holds them tight while its impact strength allows for give and take without snapping.

PipewrapsSpecifically designed to protect pipe surfaces from corrosion, abrasion and electrolytic action.  These rugged tapes are ideally suited for corrosion protection jobs on pipe, conduit, and joints and valves both indoors and outdoors, either above or below ground.

Protective Filmsis specifically designed to provide residue free surface protection under the most demanding applications.  Ideal for such applications as window / casing protection from spills and sprays during building construction using concrete, mortar, stucco, EIFS and paint.

Safety TapeUsed for a wide range of color coding applications, lane marking and safety coding to meet OSHA requirements, decorating, striping, and sealing. Moisture, weather and chemical resistant offering excellent protection against abrasion.

Stucco TapeStuck-O-Tape is the brand of choice for stucco trim tapes.  Is coated with an aggressive natural rubber-resin adhesive with excellent weather UV resistant aging characteristics.  Ideal for indoor or outdoor use as a surface protection and masking tape.  Removes easily from surfaces as varied as masonry, wood, vinyl, painted metal and glass even after prolonged periods.

Thread Seal Tape - For thread sealing iron, stainless steel, copper, brass, glass or rubber pipes to ensure leak proof connections.  Provides chemically inert, no hardening, non-contaminating permanent seal capable of withstanding temperatures from - 375ºF to 500ºF.

Vinyl Electrical Tapeis designed to perform in temperature environments up to 80ºC (176ºF), has excellent resistance to: acids, alkalies, abrasion, moisture, corrosion and varying weather conditions (i.e.: sunlight).

Vinyl Foam Gasketing Tapeis low density single-coated vinyl foam, 6-10 pound per cubic foot depending on thickness, and available from 1/16” to 1” thick. PVCFLD series has water-borne acrylic adhesive one side for a variety of gasketing functions, including seaming, sealing, spacing, squeak and rattle abatement, dust and light barrier, dissimilar metals separation, etc. Compare with products from St. Gobain, Foamseal, and Gaska Tape .

Window Film - The specially formulated acrylic adhesive system offers extended UV weather-ability, temperature & abrasion resistance. Ideal for such applications as window / casing protection from spills and sprays during building construction using concrete, mortar, stucco, EIFS and paint.
