Velcro® Brand Press-Lok®

PRESS-LOK® Tabs are pre-cut self-adhesive rectangular tabs which are self-engaging, so separate hook and loop is not necessary. Using two of these PRESS-LOK® tabs for a positive and secure fastening is all that is required. 

Coated with PS-32 which is a high quality, general purpose rubber adhesive with an excellent immediate tack; these tabs are suitable for use on most surfaces including paper, card, rigid plastic, glass, and metal. They are not suitable for use on PVC, vinyl or anything containing plasticizers. Uses for these tabs include point of sale, retail display, stationery, and packaging applications. The industrial rolls are 50m long with approx. 3846 tabs per roll. The tabs are 20mm x 10mm.

Press-Lok® Rolls for Packaging

PRESS-LOK® rolls offer superior closure in the packaging industry. Instead of needing to perfectly align zippers, PRESS-LOK® closures easily engage when the two sides are pressed together. 

Industry feedback indicates that this is a benefit to older consumers, as the technology does the work, not the user. For even further assurance, one can actually hear the hooks securing. 

Velcro tests verify 100% performance even after 300 openings, which means goods are secure. All that and PRESS-LOK® maintains a low profile. The discreet, transparent closure adds functionality without disturbing existing design aesthetic.

Alfa-Lok® Self-Engaging Tape

VELCRO® Brand ALFA-LOK™ is a self-engaging high strength tape with interlocking mushroom shaped hooks that provide a strong, reliable and non-directional connection and closure. Simply press firmly together without the need for precise alignment or positioning. 

For use within a range of applications including bonding decorative panels, ceiling panels, semi-structural panels, plaster boards, solar panels etc. 

The self-engaging mushroom hook construction eliminates the need for a separate loop side. It offers a more rigid connection with less movement whilst maintaining the ability to remove, re-position and fasten whenever required.

VELCRO® Brand Weldable, Heat or Solvent-Activated Tapes

Solvent and heat activated adhesives, available on most VELCRO® Brand hook and loop tapes, provide the strongest bond to the tape itself. They can be made ready for instant bonding by many easy methods of application (e.g. solvent, heat, ultrasonic, dielectric). Also, they are recommended for applications where a more permanent bond is desired. Dry to the touch, these adhesives become tacky upon activation using ultrasonic, high-frequency welding, ironing, hot air application or solvents. The adhesives used are either based on nitrile rubber or urethane which can be activated by; high-frequency hot air, ultrasonic welding, ironing or solvents such as MEK or Acetone.

VELCRO® Brand Low Profile

Low Profile Velcro is something that is becoming more popular as there are numerous applications where low profile or ultra-thin Velcro is more suitable. So if you have an application that may require a thinner Velcro® product, please contact us. We can supply low profile hooks in in continuous roll forms in different widths or as coins etc. It is usually mated with Velcro® Velour. It is used in applications such as straps for helmets, closing systems on shoes and body armour and on abrasive discs.

VELCRO® Brand Velour

Velcro® Velour is a textile which is very similar to Velcro ® Loop
but is much softer to the touch. It is widely used in medical products
