E. L. Hatton Sales Co. has introduced the new Banner Ups MegaTape, a double-sided version of the Banner Ups PowerTape, a single- sided banner hem reinforcing tape. MegaTape, PowerTape and PowerTab products used to finish advertising banners without sewing or grommeting.
MegaTape is made of the same super-strong film as PowerTape, but is adhesive coated on both sides. This provides banner makers with the strength of PowerTape and the fold-finished banner edge which some prefer in a single product. Available in 1.5-inch width, MegaTape is applied just like ordinary double-sided banner hem tape, but has more than triple the strength, plus it adds firmness to the banner edge for a much cleaner appearance. Banners made with MegaTape withstood winds of over 90 MPH in wind tunnel tests. Also, MegaTape can be used to reinforce hems in two-sided banners, as the tape itself is invisible after folded into the hem.
"Customers have been asking for a double-sided version of PowerTape for years," said company president Rick Hatton, "Using MegaTape together with our PowerTabs is a faster, easier, and ultimately less expensive way to make banners compared to ordinary tape and grommets."
