It´s not tape without a substrate – or how to make paper

Today’s tapes are a marriage of complex components. The substrate, in this case paper, contributes significantly to the physical properties of the finished tape. There is significant engineering required to generate the desired properties and still provide an economical product. This presentation will outline the steps and processes required to go from timber to ready-for-adhesive tape papers and includes pulping, papermaking and polymer post treatments.
