History

Rice paste, animal glue, and tree resin.  The long history of adhesive that started with liquid adhesive advanced to easy-to-use pressure activated adhesive tape today.  From children’s classrooms to satellites in space, life without adhesive tape is now unimaginable.  Currently, in a world full of new types of substrates in different shapes, sizes, weights, and application procedures, adhesion is more difficult than ever.  Bow Tape is here to provide the solution.
