Tapes for Hook and Loop Fasteners

Hook & loop systems combined with transfer tapes are clever solutions for many consumer and industrial applications. This special adhesive offers high initial tack and cohesion values for a secure bond to plastics. The composite of hook & loop and 3F transfer adhesive tape was tested for its fire resistance in accordance with FMVSS 302 and approved. This makes it ideal for use in motor vehicles, for example; to fix wiring harnesses, interior trim, seat covers, carpet coverings or insulation mats.
