Consumers demand for environmentally-conscious double-coated tape sets the manufacturing standard for ITC, International Tape Company

When consumers speak, smart companies respond. So when it came time to improve its company's products and invest in capital improvements to keep them ahead of their competition, International Tape Company (ITC) was obligated to listen and lead the way in their industry.

The physical properties of tape products are more important than the average consumer realizes. What many people may not be aware of is that millions of dollars are wasted every year because of the failure to properly qualify a tape product for a particular application. A failure in tape performance can lead to additional waste in our landfills. For example, when a large company is applying a tape product to one of their costly parts and the double coated tape fails to maintain its expected performance, the tape and the part are not usable. This increases company costs as now they need to replace the product, reship and dispose of damaged goods, thereby reducing company profits and increasing waste. Further, they have now delayed the shipping to their customer, which creates a potential problem for customer service on both sides of the transaction.

"It's a simple matter of responding to consumer needs and understanding the effects your products have on your customers' business," remarks Catherine Santa Fe, Sales and Marketing Manager. "We work closely with our customers to qualify the right tape product for each specific application. We offer complimentary samples and trial orders to assure proper testing and performance evaluation. Our engineering staff is constantly working on discovering new methods to address various application uses so our customers can be guaranteed they are utilizing a double coated tape product that will perform under most environmental and UV conditions."

ITC's double-coated tapes are of high quality and specially designed to be used for diverse application purposes for both permanent and semi-permanent uses. A variety of formulated adhesives are applied to films, papers, vinyl, cloth, tissue, foam and other specialty substrates.

The end result - good, responsible, green business practices, customer loyalty and profitable growth for ITC, its customers and their consumers.
