Hook and Loop
ETP-56S Diaper Molded Hook
The ETP-56S Diaper Hook is a revolutionary molded hook fastener designed for the personal hygiene and diaper industry. Unlike any other design in the diaper hook industry, this Easy Tape® hook fastener features both stable peel and shear strength along with soft touch hand feeling. The high-strength hook shape means less material is needed to perform equal to or better than other brands, creating major cost savings in the long run.
This light, ultra thin fastener is perfect for disposable diaper and personal hygiene applications. Available in white, clear, and colors by request.
The All-In-One Strap is our innovative jacquard elastic loop strap with either a single-sided or double-sided hook fastener. Unlike any other strap in the industry, this product weaves multiple elastic structures into one adjustable strap. The hook and loop closure allows for quick and easy adjustment. This jacquard elastic loop strap is superior in comfort, moisture-wicking ability, and customizability. The All-In-One-Strap is perfect for orthopedic equipment, wearable tech, military/tactical, footwear, and apparel applications.
OK Loop is a low-profile ETB-09 knit loop that combines a smooth, plush surface structure with high elastic stretch. This elastic stretch loop is compatible with our low to medium cycle Easy Tape® molded hooks, like ETN-21C, ETN-32C and ETR-62S.
OK Loop is designed with an ultra-soft and thin flexible fabric to serve the needs of the medical and orthopedic industry, along with any applications that require a wide stretch loop.
Loc-Grip Anti-Slip Film
The Loc-Grip is an anti-slip TPR film designed for the medical, apparel, and sporting goods market. It features fine hand feeling, water resistance, and strong durability. The material can be applied to backpack straps, sporting gloves, drink coasters, apparel, and sports equipment handles.
The Loc-Grip is an anti-slip TPR film that is designed to be safe for frequent skin contact, making it ideal for sporting and medical orthopedic applications. Unlike other anti-slip material that may lose its grip in water, TAKO maintains its function when wet and regains full slip resistance once dried. This soft touch material is perfect for any application that requires medium abrasion resistance and fine hand feeling. Available with knit fabric, microfiber elastic, or adhesive backing.
Easy Click Automotive Fasteners
These reclosable automotive fasteners are designed to replace one-time-use tooling inside the vehicle. These pieces can be molded to spec and used in areas such as the car headliner, trunk, and door panels.
