RTape Introduces 4078RLA

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.

Vinyl films with air egress release liners have almost eliminated bubbles and wrinkles from applied graphics. Here’s how the product works. These release liners are comprised of multiple layers of paper, a polyethylene coating and a siliconization layer. The polyethylene coating of the release liner is embossed with a textured pattern. The textured structure of the release liner imparts tiny air channels in the adhesive of the vinyl film. Think of these as escape routes for air. As the installer squeegees the facestock, the air between the film and the substrate is directed through the air channels to the edge of the graphic.
