RTape Introduces 4078RLA

RTape Corp. (South Plainfield, NJ) announces the introduction of 4078RLA, a standard weight Conform® Series paper application tape with a medium tack adhesive. 4078RLA is designed to transfer difficult-to-transfer films utilizing release liners with a tight release.

The new tape is ideal for wall graphics because it releases easily from applied graphics without pulling the graphics off of the wall surface. 4078RLA also features a unique RLA® Release Liner Adhesion formulation, which allows the tape to stick to hard-to-adhere-to release liners. The RLA® feature prevents tunneling and edge curling even when graphics are rolled. Graphics stay neater and cleaner in storage or when being shipped.

For easy unwind and trouble-free handling, 4078RLA is release coated. This feature helps prevent untimely and costly mishaps when laminating the tape to graphics.

4078RLA is available in factory cut rolls. Utilizing razor slitters each layer of tape is slit perfectly, one layer at a time. There are no adhesive balls, no gapping between layers of tape to dry out the adhesive and no nicked edges which can cause tape tears.
