Lifecycle of Tape

All adhesives begin on a 48” log or sometimes referred to a jumbo roll. Tape is manufactured to specification then shipped to converters or resellers. Tape is then cut or “slit” based on the customers requirements. If you wanted 3” for instance, we would pull a log and then cut and package them into a case of 3” with 16 rolls (3” * 16 = 48).
