Elite Tape offers a wide variety of Flatback Paper Tapes. We offer several Brown Flatback Paper Tapes from economical to premium. Our Elite #532 is our most economical with a soft buttery release unwind and quick stick rubber adhesive system. Elite #532 is the ideal choice when you need a tape that has more strength than a paper masking tape but at a much more affordable cost vs. heavy duty flatback tape. Elite #538 is our “Contractor Grade” brown flatback tape and has an excellent balance between machine and cross direction tensile strength. It performs well under a wide range of temperature and humidity conditions. Elite #530 is our most popular brown flatback tape and offers an excellent combination of strength, conformability and value. It is our leader when used in the manufacturing of corrugated boxes. Elite #534 is a step up in performance from our #530 and is offered as our “Premium” brown flatback tape. Elite #534 is the industry leader in brown flatback tapes. All of our flatbacks are stocked in master “jumbo” rolls 58″ wide x 2000 yds in length. This allows us the unique ability to provide custom widths and long length machine rolls for continuous processing applications.

Elite Tape also offers a wide selection of “Colored” Flatback Paper Tapes. Our Elite #527C is our “Printable” colored flatback paper tape. We offer this in 6 bright colorful stock colors; (White, Red, Blue, Green, Orange & Yellow). We stock master “jumbo” rolls 57″ x 1440 yds so we have the ability to convert these into printer rolls 6″ & 12″ wide x long length for continuous printing applications or other custom sizes. Our Elite #546C is our heavy duty colored flatback paper tape that is moisture resistant and ideal for applications requiring a color for identification but also the strength of a flatback paper. #528BL is ultra strong and therefore an industry choice for heavy duty splicing, bundling, wrapping and holding applications. #539W is a printable flatback tape with excellent tensile strength making it a wise choice for the most demanding bundling, tail tabbing and reel closure applications.
