Overview

TP Tape is a system designed for use as a thermal transfer printable, self-laminating identification label for the various types of tubes found in the aerospace, defence and marine industry.  Made from an optically clear polyester and a coloured printable coating with a high performance acrylic pressure sensitive adhesive. This cost and time saving system allows you to print on a unique range of pre colour-coded labels on demand thus eliminating the need to use maintenance paints, stencils, hot-stamps and etching tools.
