In general, cloth tapes are strong and offer good conformability. All cloth tapes from Advance Tapes have non-corrosive adhesives keeping any reaction with the surface applied down to a minimum. Some cloth tapes will peel clean from surfaces, usually polycoated tapes perform better in this respect although surfaces should be tested if this is critical.
If you wish to write on the tape for identification purposes, uncoated cloth tapes may be the best choice. Alternatively, tapes with a matt surface will perform better than gloss coated tapes. The most popular colours for cloth tapes are black, silver and white. For a much wider range of colours, polycoated tapes offer the best choice.
Cloth tapes have flexible, durable, and versatile cloth backings. They are commonly used in the medical, HVAC, and construction industries for a variety of attaching applications. Highly conformable (easy to shape), they have low acid content, which makes them suitable for paper and fabric. Cloth tapes can also be coated with a glossy, waterproof finish for use in plumbing, low-strength bundling, and sealing applications.
