PoleTape & PoleTape Pro

Pole Banner Tape

Banner Ups PoleTape & PoleTape Pro is a highly aggressive pure adhesive film used to make pole pocket hems or for splicing banner media together. PoleTape is a faster and more cost-effective solution than sewing or welding pole pockets. Ordinary double-sided pole banner tapes do not have the strength needed to make reliable pole pocket hems. PoleTape can be used to make strong pole pocket hems without sewing or welding. We also recommend grommeting through the PoleTape at both ends where longer-term outdoor use is expected.

PoleTape is recommended to use with double-sided blockout banner material. PoleTape Pro is recommended if you require bonding in higher temperatures between 0-200F°. If using 13 oz 1-sided banner media we do recommend that you pre-test PoleTape with your specific media and environment to make sure you are satisfied with the pole banner tape adhesion levels. Samples available upon request.

How to hang pole banners using PoleTape. PoleTape is a super strong double sided tape used to create pokle pocket banners without sewing or welding. Just apply PoleTape along the top and bottom edge of your banner, remove the tape liner, and fold the pole pocket edge. No more sewing needed. PoleTape is a very aggressive sticky tape. It comes in 1/2″ x 200ft and 1″ x 200ft rolls.

ATTENTION: Best Practices

  • It is important to use a high-quality double sided blockout banner media for making pole pocket banners. Using 13 oz single sided media is NOT compatible with PoleTape or PoleTape PRO for outdoor durability. The reverse side surface is generally not intended for ink or adhesive application.
  • UV Printed banners are NOT recommended for use with PoleTape or PoleTape PRO. UV Ink has a very low surface energy making it minimally receptive of adhesives. For best results combine PoleTape with banners printed with eco-solvent or solvent inks.
  • When making pole banners for outdoor use, often there is a requirement to include grommets for attachment to light poles. For best results, we recommend grommeting through the PoleTape adhesive at both ends to ensure maximum holding power

Will PoleTape stick to all banner media?

While PoleTape is extremely aggressive we have found that some low-cost media have non-adhesive receptive films on the backside. We recommend pre-testing PoleTape with the media and conditions you intend to use. Please contact us for a free sample roll.

What is PoleTape’s temperature range?

PoleTape is a rubber based adhesive and that’s where it gets its extremely high tack. One downside to this is that the rubber-based adhesive has a narrower use temperature range (Temp range 0-140 F). If your application is expected to be at the extremes of this range PoleTape may not be the best option. Please feel free to request a free sample to test.

What is the difference between PoleTape and PoleTape Pro?

The main difference between PoleTape and PoleTape Pro is the temperature range. PoleTape is a rubber-based adhesive and because of this has a narrower use temperature range (Temp range 0-140 F). In comparison Poletape Pro has a higher temperature range of 0-200F°
