Red Tape
Thomas and Betts has added red flexible vinyl and clear permanent polyester tapes to its line of labels for the E-Z-Code EZL-100 thermal label printer. Both selections offer an EZ-Peel split backing, industrial-strength adhesive and smear-free printing, and are available in cassettes that hold 18 feet of tape. Available in three quarter-inch width, the red vinyl tape is designed to be highly visible, applicable in indoor and outdoor environments and is resistant to oils, dirt, grime and solvents. The tape offers flexibility and a strong adhesive, which enable it to hold firmly to flat or curved surfaces, as well as smooth to highly textured ones. Applications include pipe, wire and cable marking. Its vivid red colour makes it ideal for safety identification. The clear polyester tape, available in half- and three-quarter inch widths (catalog numbers EZ-CP12 and EZ-CP34, respectively), adheres permanently to smooth to moderately textured flat surfaces, such as bin tags, switch plates, terminal blocks, shelving and patch panels.
