ATG Tape 999

POS Tapes are heavily involved in the print finishing and point of sale industries. We offer the adhesive solution to any requirements there are.

Recently, we had a customer contact us through our website. They had a problem with their current ATG tape from a different supplier. The adhesive didn't seem to be strong enough to stick to the new printed plastic material. This is a company who produce wallets for a large Blue-Chip company. Needless to day, that resolving this problem was of utmost priority.

After a search on the web and a call to our sales team to discuss the application, POS Tapes arranged free samples of our 999 ATG Tape on a next day delivery service. After a one week initial testing period and subsequent successful application of the product, we are now the proud new supplier to this company.

For more information about any of our tapes or specifically the 999 ATG Tape, please contact our sales team by email on or via phone on 0191 296 7810.

We can offer you the same excellent expert advice and provide samples to help with your adhesive needs.

Application Instrutions for Adhesive POS Tapes Products

POS Tapes have a large range of tapes and adhesives to cover every needs and individual or company might have.

Below are a few pointers on how to get the best results from any adhesive product you purchase from POS Tapes.


As a general statement, the best temperature for bonding adhesive tapes is between +15°C and +30°C.

Low temperature application is possible for modified adhesive systems, but there may be a compromise on the ultimate bond strength.


The surface of the parts must be clean, dry and free of moisture and condensation.
The surfaces must also be free of oil, fat, dust and other contaminants.
Porous surfaces can be primed to ensure a uniform, stable surface.


The cleaning of the surfaces has to be done with clean cloths together with suitable solvents, like alcohol or ethers, to remove any dust and oil.

For release agents and other contaminants you can use the following solvents: isopropanol-water mixture 50:50, heptane, ethanol, acetone, MEK or other suitable solvents that do not attack the substrate to be bonded. The selected solvent must be checked thoroughly before being used and the safe use of solvents must always be taken into consideration.


Adhesive tapes are pressure sensitive (PSA’s). The initial application pressure is critical to the ultimate performance of the adhesive tape. The target application pressure is 10-15N/cm², which is best provided by a roller or press. When application is only possible by hand, a firm even and overall pressure is essential and is best provided by use of an applicator or rubber based ‘squeegee’.
Firmer adhesive classes (such as pure acrylics) require more initial application pressure than soft ones.

The full bonding power of hard adhesives is attained between 24 and 72 hours, depending upon the substrates, application pressure and the application environment.

Force and Stress

Where possible, avoid leverage of the bonded components for as long as possible after assembly.
Shear and peel forces have to be evenly distributed across the whole of the bonded surface areas. During assembly, permanent shear loads should be avoided, as this will adversely affect the viscoelastic bonding. (e.g. arched, curved or bowed surfaces should be mechanically clamped and held for the bond to be effective)

Suitable Materials 

Typically, good adhesion can be attained on smooth surfaces, for rough surfaces you will also require a thicker tape or alternative product format.

Good or easily bonded surfaces are: metals, high energy surfaces such as smooth wood, ABS polycarbonate, PMMA, hard PVC, wood, stone and glass.

Critical Materials

Guidance should be sought for low energy surfaces, particularly plastics, where plasticisers may be present, which can adversely affect the bond. These critical surfaces such as polyethylene, polypropylene, rubbers, powder coats, silicones, polyurethane, Teflon and varnishes should be tested for performance and compatibility prior to specifications or recommendations for use are made.


The storage of adhesive tapes should be at room or ambient temperature and at 50-70% relative humidity and out of direct sunlight.

Extremes and fluctuations in storage temperature and humidity should be avoided.

Euro Shop is one of the World’s major retail exhibitions and with over 109,000 visitors from 110 countries it is a 5 day event not to be missed.

It was a very exciting opportunity for POS Tapes to exhibit at this prestigious show as it gave us the chance to expand our presence in the European Point of Sale market.
It was also a great opportunity to meet up with our existing customers and suppliers across Europe & the World as well as meeting new customers and creating new working relationships.

At POS Tapes it is all about the customer: we want to understand what demands they face in their businesses and how we can help them to make their life easier.

Euro Shop was the perfect launch date for our new Automatic Hang Tab application machine. This machine enabled us to show our customers and prospects how hang tabs can be automatically applied to a product. This makes the process of displaying products in a retail environment quick and easy, giving our customers more time to look after their customers!

It was 5 days of making new contacts and establishing relationships with customers and suppliers whilst at the same time learning more about the Point of Sales industry across the world.

We are proud of all the the inquiries we have received and we shall have your samples and quotations out in the next days. We will be back in 2017, exhibiting at the show again and we are already looking forward to it.
