What is Vinyl Tape?
Adaptable to many uses, these rugged, conformable tapes can be found in automotive maintenance and repair, construction, marine, commercial vehicle, and other industries for their versatility and reliability. Vinyl tapes are fast and economical means for creating clearly marked lanes, corridors and hazardous or no-go areas in factories, warehouses, and hospitals, where they remain in place until no longer needed. Using vinyl tape for lane marking instead of painting eliminates drying time and the need to ventilate paint and associated solvent fumes. And since vinyl tapes can be removed quickly and cleanly, they are a fast, versatile, and cost-effective option to paint.
