DURACO BHT: Banner Hem Tape

Essentra Introduces DURACO BHT: Banner Hem Tape, a New Adhesive Tape Designed Specifically for Use with Banners

Duraco® BHT Banner Hem Tape is a perfect adhesive tape for seaming and finishing edges of vinyl, mesh or fabric signs and banners. Moreover, Duraco BHT eliminates the need and added cost for stitching or welding. It is available in three different widths: 1, 1½ and 2 inch widths.

With the continued expansion into new adhesive tape markets, Essentra identified the need for a high performance banner hem tape that is suitable for both indoor and outdoor banners. Additionally, the unique construction is ideal for pole banners as it supplies extra strength during high winds.

Duraco BHT utilizes an innovative adhesive tape and carrier technology which exhibits superior performance compared to competitors; it delivers a smooth hem, allowing for clean corners and easy grommet application.

With the addition of the Duraco BHT Banner Hem Tape, Essentra again exhibits its diversified experience, understanding and knowledge in the various double-sided tape markets and the necessary solutions required. With this new product introduction, Essentra demonstrates its commitment in solving market challenges with its full offering of specialty adhesive tapes.
