3M ATG Double Sided Tape ApplicatorATG Transfer Tape System

ATG stands for Automated Transfer Gun and is one of the fastest ways to apply double sided tapes by hand. Using the well-known yellow applicator gun from 3M you can simply load a cartridge roll of double sided tape and start applying. In tests it has been proved to be up to 50% faster than cutting and applying tape from rolls by hand. The Guarantape ATG double sided tape system cartridges are easy to use, quick fit into the guns and apply to your work.

What are the benefits of ATG double sided tape?

ATG (Adhesive Transfer Gun) double-sided tape offers several benefits for various applications. Here are some of the advantages associated with ATG double-sided tape:

  1. Clean Application: ATG tapes are applied using a transfer gun, which results in a clean and precise application. This is particularly useful when working on projects that require accuracy and a neat finish.
  2. No Liner Waste: Unlike traditional double-sided tapes with liners that need to be removed, ATG tapes are supplied on a release liner. This liner is wound up on a take-up reel as the tape is applied, eliminating liner waste and making the application process more efficient.
  3. High Tack: ATG tapes often have high tack, meaning they provide a strong initial bond upon application. This can be beneficial for applications where immediate adhesion is crucial.
  4. Versatility: ATG double-sided tapes come in various formulations and thicknesses, making them suitable for a wide range of materials and surfaces. They can be used for bonding paper, cardboard, plastic, fabric, and other materials.
  5. Convenience: The dispensing gun used with ATG tapes makes the application process quick and easy. It allows for controlled dispensing of the tape and is ergonomically designed for user comfort.
  6. Precise Placement: The design of ATG tape guns allows for precise placement of the tape, making it suitable for projects that require accuracy and control. This is particularly useful in crafting, scrapbooking, and other creative applications.
  7. Bond Strength: ATG tapes often provide a strong and durable bond, making them suitable for applications where a reliable and long-lasting adhesion is required.
  8. Consistent Thickness: ATG tapes are available in consistent thicknesses, ensuring uniform bonding across the entire length of the tape. This consistency is important for achieving reliable results in various applications.
  9. Ease of Use: The dispensing gun simplifies the application process, making ATG tapes easy to use for both professionals and hobbyists. The quick-loading mechanism of the gun allows for efficient tape replacement.
  10. Customisation: ATG double-sided tapes can be found in various widths and lengths, providing options for customisation based on specific project requirements.

It’s important to choose the appropriate ATG tape formulation and thickness for the intended application to ensure optimal performance. Whether it’s for crafting, framing, or other projects, ATG double-sided tape offers a reliable solution with the added benefits of clean application and reduced waste. Presco offers a standard permanent adhesive level that is perfect for all regular paper print finishing jobs and a much stronger Ultrastick level of tape for more demanding jobs and laminated work.
