Introducing Hook and Loop Tape from Essentra Specialty Tapes




Essentra Specialty Tapes (formerly Duraco Inc. and Duraco Express) introduces Duraco Hook and Loop tape, which includes four product families: regular, low profile and thick versions, plus a line of sew-on hook and loop tapes. The popular hook and loop micro-fastening technology has been enhanced by Essentra Specialty Tapes with a large variety of innovative tape options, mated sets and sizes to accommodate many closure or fastening needs.

Essentra Specialty Tapes offers a large selection of continuous rolls and coins of hook or loop tapes. However, an “Essentra Exclusive” is their unique offering of mated sets of Hook and Loop pre-cut pieces and coins, which save time in assembly and mounting. Mated sets allow the user to easily match up the tape position on each substrate without measuring or guesswork. Essentra Specialty Tapes offers the largest variety of mated Hook and Loop pre-cut pieces and coins in the market.

Duraco Hook and Loop Tape is an ideal closure for many applications which require frequent opening, closing or updating of signs or components. Popular mounting uses include signage, banners, trade show graphics, exhibits and P.O.P. displays. Duraco Hook and Loop can also be used as a closure device for folders, boxes, binders, enclosures, sample kits and books. In addition, these tapes are ideal for a variety of industrial applications, including sewing and auto/marine seat coverings. These Hook and Loop tapes bond well to corrugate, chipboard, glass, wood, powder coated metal low surface energy plastics and others.

The Duraco Hook and Loop Tape product offering includes:

1. Duraco Hook and Loop spools, continuous rolls, pre-cut pieces and coins on a roll, plus mated sets of pre-cut pieces and coins.

2. Duraco Hook and Loop Low Profile tapes are approximately 40% less thick for closure applications that require a less conspicuous presence, and yet maintain strength and durability features.


3. Duraco Thick Hook and Loop tapes are offered in pre-cut pieces and coins, and include the addition of a foam tape in thicknesses of 1/32”, 1/16”, or 1/8”. This hook and loop tape is often used when a pop-out or 3D dimensional effect is desired or for better gap filling and conformability with substrates.
4. Duraco Hook and Loop Sew-on tape is available in continuous rolls.

All Duraco Hook and Loop Tapes are made of 100% nylon. They feature a permanent rubber-based adhesive, and include a clear polyester liner. Application temperature ranges from +65°F to +100°F and service temperatures range from -20°F to +150°F.
