Hey guys, (the all inclusive form of "guys")
Does anyone know of such a product that is adhesive tape but made of like a fabric/cloth that is also food safe? We make packaging here and are wanting to try adding some long strips of tape on the nip roller of our machine. I could go into long detail about why we need it but its just too long.... It's not to fix the machinery or anything, it's to try and counteract a problem and a supplier of ours has shown that they've put strips of tape on the nip roller diagonally and it helps to fix a problem we are having. They've suggested we do the same but this supplier is overseas and the rules might be different there, there's no way we could put that same cloth tape on our nip roller and it be seen as NOT a potential contaminant. Too many threads and whatnot that can come loose. I tried to google different variations of food safe/food grade cloth tape/ fabric tape, but i'm not having much luck.
I thought maybe one of you foodies might know of something.
I think the reason regular flat tape doesn't work is because it needs to have some sort of ridges in the tape, but also the ridges can't be sharp in any way so they need to be soft....like fabric.
