E. L. Hatton Sales Co., maker of Banner Ups PowerTape, a high tensile strength single-sided adhesive banner hem tape, introduces a new improved version of the popular product. New Clear PowerTape is made of a translucent film which is virtually invisible when applied, allowing banner graphics to show through, especially on double-sided banners. Clear PowerTape is used to make banners of much higher wind resistance than traditional sewn, welded, or taped banners, in minutes without any special equipment. Available in 1.5” width, Clear PowerTape is does not require folding of banner hem, saving up to 80% of the time required for double-sided banner hem tape.
Clear PowerTape is made with a fiber-reinforced composite polymer film created by E. L. Hatton Sales specifically for the banner application. The resulting tape is 10% stronger than original white PowerTape. In recent hurricane velocity wind-tunnel tests, a banner made with Clear PowerTape withstood winds up to 99 MPH. In addition to the strength benefits, the Clear PowerTape is ideal for use for finishing mesh banners without an unsightly opaque band along banner edges.
The improved Clear PowerTape is also lower in cost than the original white PowerTape, which will not be discontinued. Both products are stocked for immediate shipment.
