Insulation Resistance

The ability of tape to prevent the flow of electrical current across its surface, usually measured on the backing.

Label Stock

Pressure sensitive insulation, materials furnished in roll or sheet form with liner, which can be later printed, frequently die cut, and intended for use as labels.

Lap Joint

A joint made by lapping one material over another to provide a mated area that can be joined with an adhesive.

Latent Stain

A stain in a surface to which tape has been applied, which does not become noticeable until some time after the tape is removed, usually after the surface has been exposed to sunlight or heat.


A situation where a section of tape has pulled away from the surface to which it has been applied.

Metal Foil

Thin flexible sheets of metal, such as aluminum, copper, and lead, used as tape backings because of their inherent properties such as weather resistance, electrical conductivity, reflectivity, etc.

Moisture Vapor Transmission Rate

A measure of the rate of water vapor transmission through a pressure-sensitive product, usually measured in grams/square meter/24 hours.


A roll of tape in which the layers are in correct alignment, but the tape is displaced sideways on the core.


A "squeezing out" of the adhesive from under the backing.   Occurrence when a tape is in a roll form causes the edges of the roll to become tacky.


The ability of a tape to prevent the transmission of light.


The release of volatile components under heat or vacuum.

Pattern Coated

A term that refers to the width and spacing arrangement of strips of adhesive laid down parallel to machine direction and across the width of pressure sensitive stock during its production.

Peel Adhesion

The force per unity width required to break the bond between a pressure-sensitive adhesive tape and the surface to which it has been applied when the tape is peeled back at a controlled angle at a standard rate and condition.


The softening of an adhesive when exposed to migrating plasticizers or oils.

Pressure Sensitive

A term commonly used to designate a distinct category of adhesive tapes and adhesives which in dry form (solvent/water free) are aggressively and permanently tacky at room temperature and that firmly adhere to a variety of dissimilar surfaces upon mere contact, without the need of more than finger or hand pressure.

Application of a thin layer of adhesive-like material to a backing that serves as a bonding agent between the backing and the final adhesive coat.

Release Liner (aka Slip Sheet or Interliner)

A web of sheet material used as a protective liner, which covers the adhesive side of the tape.  It is removed prior to application.  Most frequently found on double-sided tapes and label stocks.

Release Force

The measure of the force required to separate a unit width of pressure sensitive tape from a release coated surface at a controlled angle and speed. 

Rope Stock

A smooth paper made wholly or largely of hemp fiber for tensile strength.
