Orafol has historic roots and long experience as a tape coating company. The company itself, however, is new. It has the advantage over many other long established companies, of operating from a large greenfield site. The factory itself and all the plant and equipment is very modern, as is the management ethos.
Orafol's quality is second to none, and production is highly efficient. As a result they have expanded from a single factory in 1995 to the current impressive size. They are now one of the largest tape coating companies in Europe.
A large range of adhesives are available but they fall into a few groups. Solvent based pure acrylic adhesives (PA) give the highest performance but with some limitations. Solvent based modified acrylic adhesives (MA) give high to very high performance and are extremely versatile. Dispersion or water based acrylics (DA) are more economical but with generally lower performance. Synthetic rubber adhesives (SR) give medium to high performance under limited conditions:
Transfer Tapes - Orafilm
Transfer tapes are an unsupported adhesive film coated on release paper. Because of this they are very flexible - which may be an advantage or a disadvantage. Transfer tapes will preserve the flexibility of a material rather than reinforce it, but they are more difficult to handle. Sometimes a tissue or filmic tape will be a better option.

Thin Double Sided Tapes - Orabond
Carrier tapes are true double-sided tapes: adhesive coated on both sides of a carrier. The carrier provides reinforcement making these tapes easier to handle. Typical carriers are tissue, films and woven materials. Tissue is quite flexible, films are reinforcing, woven materials reinforce in one or two directions only. The films include polypropylene (PP), an economical transparent film, Polyester (PES) for higher temperature performance and PVC where a white film is required. Various adhesives are available, from low performance economy adhesives to the highest performance for demanding applications. The large range includes the following:

Foam Double Sided Tapes - Oramount
Foam tapes are used for bonding two rigid materials together, providing gap-filling to ensure full adhesive contact to both surfaces. Typically these tapes use high performance adhesives. Double Sided Foam tapes are a Technibond speciality, so in some cases we stock alternative, non-standard products. We also carry some additional thicknesses and colours. We apply our own film liners, so we can offer a range of release papers and films on any of the products.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
We slit most of our products to order, so we have no standard roll width. If you want 13mm or 133mm, you can have it.
As a standard, the minimum is 6mm. We can slit most products narrower than this (we have slit down to 1.6mm) but we charge the same per roll as if it were 6mm, due to the increased slitting and packaging difficulty and the increased waste. The maximum width depends on the product, but is usually at least 1 metre.
We hold large quantities of bulk rolls in stock and manufacture to order. That's the only way we can offer the number of products and product variations that we do.
UK deliveries on rolls, 3 to 5 working days. Spools, pads and die-cuts are 10 working days. If your order is urgent, please speak to our sales department and we'll try to help. Export orders are subject to longer delivery times.
Our MOQ on most rolls is £100. On rolls of Techniflex and on other formats it is £200.
On UK orders over £200 delivery is free. On orders between £100 and £200 we add a small order charge of £20. We can arrange a.m. and courier deliveries for additional charges.
As our products are made to order, we cannot generally accept returns unless the goods are faulty.
We are proud to guarantee the quality and performance of all our products and will quickly provide a replacement or refund if they fail to meet our standards.
Yes, we export around the world. Currently we export to Europe, the Far East, Australia and the US.
