Custom Tape Converting and Tape Slitting Meets Your Specific Requirements

Tape Slitting – pressure sensitive tape

Pressure Sensitive Tapes

Oak Distribution has the custom tape slitting capabilities to convert tape widths according to customers' specifications. Oak Distribution has installed tape slitting equipment to slit pressure sensitive specialty tapes at our corporate headquarters in Los Angeles, California. This slitting machinery allows us to take a large "log" roll and cut it to a variety of custom sizes. Most tape manufacturers only produce pressure sensitive tapes in standard sizes. We have made it possible to order small or large quantities or custom size industrial tapes.

The following are some common pressure sensitive tapes that Oak Distribution offers tape slitting services for:

  • Kapton Tape - Amber colored polyimide high temperature resistant. Used in the horizontal solder leveling process. Removes without residue.
  • Double Coated Tapes - Varieties include white foam, paper, and permanent polypropylene in clear and opaque.
  • Striped Vinyl Tapes - Yellow/black, red/white. Yellow/Black is the standard for marking "Caution" or "Hazard".
