Micro-Suction Tape - Sticks to flat surfaces with no glue

This tape has thousands of microscopic craters in its surface, functioning like micro suction cups. It sticks without glue to smooth surfaces such as glass, plastic, or painted wood. It has conventional adhesive on the other side for mounting on objects.


Used for:

It is used to fix chargers and docking stations for smartphones, digital cameras, and tablet PCs on tables and other flat surfaces. It is also used for gaskets in a cellular phone assembly. A gasket made from this tape shuts out the dust perfectly, but it can still be removed if repair is needed. Guitar players use the tape on guitar picks so they can stick them onto their guitars.


Details:
The tape loses some of its suction power when it becomes dirty, but it is possible to clean it by touching it repeatedly with sticky side of gaffa tape or by wiping it with a wet tissue. It doesn't work very well when wet. It is available in thicknesses of 0.3 mm, 0.5 mm and 0.8 mm in black and 0.5 mm and 0.8 mm in white. The 0.8 mm variant has the best holding force.

We currently stock: 

  • 0.3 mm thickness in black
