Self-adhesive tape. Flexible, durable and water-resistant
This self-adhesive kraft tape, made in Japan by Sekisui, is the premium 504NS grade. The 70gm² brown paper has a pressure sensitive adhesive with a strength rating of 337. Surface is polycoated to make it water resistant. It is non-slip, sticks to itself – important at the corners, and bumpers will stick to it. You can also write on it.
Slightly stiff but easy to shape into the rebate and corners. Excellent durability over a wide temperature range.
Take care. Sekisui 504NS tape for framers is superior to Sekisui 500 grade tapes which have a lower adhesive strength rating of 277. 500 series tapes also have a surface which does not stick to itself and bumpers don’t stick to it.
Our Sekisui 504NS grade K Sekisui tape is in stock in 50m rolls on 75mm cores. Order loose or in full boxes. Often, each roll is packed in an easy-open clear bag to keep it in perfect condition.
Working with self-adhesive materials in cold weather:
When the temperature drops remember to let self-adhesive tapes, PVA glues, boards and mounting films come up to room temperature before using them. Keep them that way for a few hours after application while the adhesives cure.
