SMD Packaging Tape Materials
What is cover tape?
Cover tape is a strip material used for SMD packaging of electronic products, often used in conjunction with carrier tape.
It is essentially a TPO film. Cover tapes manufactured by Tongxi are suitable for polystyrene and polycarbonate carrier tapes. These pressure sensitive cover tapes are resealable and highly transparent. The transparent cover tape facilitates inspection of the assembly and the antistatic properties eliminate any tearing during removal of the cover tape from the carrier reel. Other widths are available upon request. Please contact us for more information.

Cover Tapes Parameters
Type: Heat Sealable tape（HAS）& Pressure-Sensitive Adhesive tape（PSA）
Material: PS, PET
Standard Spec: 9.3MM,13.3MM,21.3MM,25.5MM,49.5MM
Classification of cover tape
1. Depending on the width of the matching carrier tape, there are different widths of cover tapes. Common widths are 5.3 mm (5.4 mm), 9.3 mm, 13.3 mm, 21.3 mm, 25.5 mm, 37.5 mm, etc.
2. There are three types of cover tapes according to the characteristics of the bonding between the cover tape and the carrier tape and the peeling off from the carrier tape, thermal cover tape (HAA), pressure sensitive cover tape (PSA) and the new universal cover tape (UCT).
Characteristics of the cover tape
1. Tensile performance, will not break easily.
2. Anti-static to protect electronic components from damage.
