Polypropylene Tapes Our value tapes are made using 25-micron BOPP polypropylene film with a water-based, acrylic adhesive, making them both a cost-effective and environmentally friendlier option. For exceptional performance with reduced noise, choose our low noise polypropylene tapes. These combine strength with speed and are quiet off the roll. Macfarlane’s strong standard polypropylene tapes are renowned for their high performance, with on-going adhesion. Manufactured using 25-micron BOPP polypropylene, in buff or clear shiny-finish, standard tapes come either with solvent-based adhesives, for long-term sealing, or hot melt adhesives, recognised for their versatile application, superior tensile strength and ultimate fixing power. These standard tapes are hard to tear and therefore require a hand dispenser for cutting. For top performance with a quieter release, choose low noise polypropylene packing tapes.
