Biaxially oriented polypropylene shrink tape is a single layer, untreated shrink tape. It is available in a wide variety of widths and film thicknesses.


PP Shrink Tape is normally wrapped around the laminate on the mandrel and held in place with pressure sensitive tape. When exposed to heat, the tape shrinks, applying pressure to the part.
