The tape shall be manufactured with film, paper, or cloth backing, coated with a smooth and uniformly distributed layer of pressure-sensitive water-insoluble adhesive. The tape shall be in wound into rolls on cores of paper fiber or plastic and shall be free from defects, with the edges clean, straight, and unbroken.

We have earned our enviable industry reputation in part because of our four decades of experience and knowledge of the U.S. Department of Defense’s detailed military packaging specifications and regulations.
