Questions asked about the clear tapes in this range

Question: Thank you for your prompt delivery of my double sided tape with red mopp lining. I will be using it fpr craft work with paper and card. Can you tell me if it is acid free? I forgot to enquire prior to purchase and have not been able to see any wording to that effect on the website, though I may not have been looking in the right place - Jean

Answer: Hi Jean - yes I can confirm that this is acid free - Ian, Product Support Manager

Question: Hi there, I'm looking for a high-transparency double-sided tape; something that could be used for microscopy applications such as embryo fixation onto glass slides. Do you have any suggestions on what may work / any samples that I could test? Thank you in advance. Best regards, Miha

Answer: Hi Miha this product may well work for what you need - - Ian, Product Support Manager

Question: Do you have double sided tape that is suitable for repairing mobile phones - Live Chat

Answer: What type of repair are you carrying out on the phone? - Ian, Product Support Manager

Question: Replacing the digitizer glass. Actually PSA 1397A seems suitable. But the description says it is suitable for temporary phone repair. What does that mean? - Live Chat

Answer: Temporary as in until you might want the glass replacing by the dealers - Ian, Product Support Manager

Question: That's great. Thank you for your help - Live Chat

Question: Hi, looking at PSA1397A...was just wondering how thick the tape is please? - Live Chat

Answer: The polyester carrier is 12mic without adhesive 9:53 am 1mm thick would take you into the realms of foam tape, and to be honest 1mm foam tapes are difficult to slit in 3mm - Ian, Product Support Manager

Question: ah, do you do anything a little thicker. Need 3mm wide, but nearer 0.5mm thick? - Live Chat Would that be the carrier you need to be thicker or the total thickness including adhesive? - Ian, Product Support Manager total thickness - Live Chat

Answer: Okay, well the 3mm polyester tape you have been looking at has a total thickness of 300 micron without the carrier Again to get into 0.5/1mm you would be looking at structural bonding tape for clear, or standard foam tapes. The issue would be slitting to 3mm though - Ian, Product Support Manager

Question: well in that case I think we might be there with the one Im looking at. Will have a word with my boss and get him to place the order...thank you for your help - Live Chat

Answer: Not a problem, let me know if you need any further help and have a good day - Ian, Product Support Manager

Name: Patricia Bazett

This tape is the strongest, best crafting tape on the market. The price and size of rolls make it extremely good value for money. I'm going to tell all my fellow crafters about this company.
5 stars



Name: Ivana

Excellent tape, sticks so well that I cannot imagine using any other alternative for my creative paper-engineering projects. It is easily removed by lighter fluid, and once the fluid evaporates, the film can be reapplied as it gets sticky again. Quick and efficient delivery from PSA is an extra bonus. I can highly recommend this product and its supplier. Score 5 out of 5 5 Stars.

Customer reviews of tapes in this range

Name: JVHL

Afraid I'm not an industrial user, just a person with things to wrap, but here are some brief comments. I have used J-Lar 50mm tape for many years, to seal cases of wine wrapped in polythene sheeting to protect bottle labels from damp and snails in a 450 year old cellar for a minimum of ten years. Without fail, J-Lar tape has remained clear and pliable, and has never lost its adhesive powers. It's easy to cut, and is kink resistant. I've also used 50mm J-Lar frequently on parcels - yes, it's more expensive than brown tape or Cellotape, but it's much, much easier to use. Unlike brown tape, J-Lar can be stuck over an address without obscuring it, and the end result looks neater, tidier and more presentable. Compared to Cellotape. J-Lar is much easier and quicker to use - cut a length and it hangs without curling or kinking or sticking to fingers and clothes (or itself). J-LAR tape is reassuringly sturdy, and doesn't break the way cheap Cellotape does - and finding a lost end is very much easier. Parcels are wrapped quicker and easier, wastage and irritation are hugely reduced, and parcels just plain look neater and tidier. Discovering that J-LAR is available in rolls of 25mm width means that I can now face the challenge of Christmas wrapping with a smile on my face (well, almost).

Name: James

Great item for crafting it has real sticking power. I use it all the time for my card making as I know it will hold many types of heavy weight craft card.
5 stars



Name: Chris Forman

So far I have only used the 6 mm Double Sided Polyester tape. I use it for joining panels and adding reinforcement to model racing yacht sails. It has higher tack than the tape I had been using and was far superior in a comparative shear test that I performed on a join. For some short seams for high draft I prefer to use 3 mm tape but I have had failures of the seam on some materials and expect that the higher tack may solve this problem.
5 stars



Name: June Hannon

I bought this tape because it's great for my card making. It's also made a great job of mending one of my attachments for my vacuum. It's really good quality and less than half the price of buying it from a craft shop. Definitely 5/5!

Name: Susan

5 stars



Name: Jean

I am now on my second 50 mtr roll of this double sided tape and am very satisfied with it. It provides a clear, strong bond for my card making. I have used it to bond paper, card and ribbon with great success. Before I found PSA solutions I used finger lift tape from craft shops as the red lined tape was too expensive for general use. However now I use only Red MOPP liner tape for all my craft projects. I would rate it a 5
5 stars



Name: Stephen Vail

The tape is good and I am delighted with the purchase. Arrived promptly.It is not often that the postage is higher than the item price. Overall value remains good.

Regarding the product it is useful to us because it is 50m long (others are much shorter), 3mm wide (many are wider) and therefore exactly what we need for our purposes!

This is a great buy. The tape is thin enough to attach a length of narrow ribbon to a card and strong enough for stiff card toppers. Hope this helps

Name: Jannette

Thank you for the prompt delivery of my order. I use the red liner tape for my card making and papercraft projects and find this type of tape to give a strong bond. Your service was very quick and the large size of rolls is more economical than buying from small craft shops. I will definitely order again in the future

Name: Stuart

I required this tape to complete the partial repair of my Sony Z2 tablet. I had the cracked screen replaced professionally but they must had forgotten to replace the adhesive tape and relied on the original tape. After noticing the screen was loose I decided the replace the tape myself and was happy to find the 3mm PSA tape online. The repair was simple to do and the backing tape easy to remove prior to refitting. The screen is now fully attached as per the original installation.
