One of the questions we are regularly asked in our sales office, is what exactly is the difference between a film liner and a paper liner? So we set out to answer that question.We think we are pretty much the experts on film liners. One of our original products, HSA, has always been supplied on a film liner as standard. We put our own film liners on products - we are probably the only converter in the UK doing this. And over half our double sided tapes are supplied on film liners. But they are not always the best option!

We quickly realized that what appeared a simple question, was actually a bit more complex. And it was difficult to put across some of the differences and complexities in words. We decided to create our own video and now, finally, we have it!


In outline, the differences are:

  • Strength
  • Flexibility
  • Moisture resistance
  • Cleanliness
  • Perceived value
  • Price
