The first pressure sensitive tape products we manufactured, back in 1950, were industrial masking tapes designed for OEM paint applications. Since then, we’ve committed ourselves to offering a broad range of quality products that can be found in all sectors of the industrial marketplace. Cantech tape products seal corrugate boxes in cold storage freezers, help with sterilisation applications in steam autoclaves, bundle steel rods in metal fabrication facilities, provide double-sided bonding capabilities in glass manufacturing and window framing…in thousands of applications, our products help to protect, mask and keep things stuck together.
Our team of R&D chemists and technicians are always working on a range of tape parameters – increased temperature range, thinner substrates, new colours, lower tack. This on-going work shows our commitment to developing new products and enhancing older ones as we strive to keep distribution partners current with new tape developments.
We entered the construction market place with the launch of our sheathing tape 20 years ago. Since then, we have been steadily increasing our product offering with a range of products including a generation of heat-resistant duct tapes, masking tapes for outdoor stucco applications and foil tapes that can be used to seam metallized bubble insulation.
This market sector requires the ability to supply products that must sustain the harsh realities of long-term exposure to the elements, the rough conditions of a construction site and the demanding needs of professional designers. Our growing sales in this category demonstrate our stability to satisfy both the architects and contractors as they build homes and office towers across the continent.
Cantech’s involvement in the retail market is very focused and highlights our desire to ensure profitability to our retail partners. We offer a complete line of retail tape products that yield high margin to mass merchandisers, hardware wholesalers, paint specialty stores and stationery outlets. The product line is constantly evolving as we introduce new products that reflect the changing needs of the marketplace. We are also very mindful of not introducing potential “dust collectors” that only soak up the capital and shelf-space of our retail partners.
Our product line formats include print overwrap, carded, dispenser-filled and club-packs. We also offer a unique range of modular tape merchandisers, as well as a series of specially labelled corrugate display boxes that assist in bringing product information to the shelves of retailers across the continent.
Hockey, Athletic and Laces
Soccer is global while baseball and football are true America sports…but the game of hockey is something that Canadians take real ownership over. And for almost as long as Canadian Technical Tape Ltd. has been coating adhesive tapes, we’ve been producing a selected range of quality hockey and trainer’s tapes. Whether it’s specially constructed cloth tape to protect a stick blade or a cast polyethylene film to wrap equipment, our tape products have proven themselves at all level of play.
Our Sportstape brand is well known and widely used by NHL® and other professional leagues players. And our Sportstape tapes, being for the professional market or the retail market is made of the same high quality and standard required by the professional players. Professional, amateur or organized league players will find with our tape real customers satisfaction and greater performance on the ice.
Dispensers and Sealers
Using a pressure sensitive tape often requires a device to hold and dispense the product. We offer a wide assortment of hand-held dispensers that allow for the easy use of both single and double-sided tape products.
Cantech also makes available a line of automatic case sealers, both semi and fully automatic. With easy load tape heads, stringent safety features, a one-year warranty and advanced options including photo-electric sensing, the product line offers a complete range for all high-volume box closure applications.
