C.Tag/® applications

C.TAG/® comes with an innovative adhesive compatible backing material integrally moulded during the patented manufacturing process. This allows the marker to be bonded to various substrates (steel, PVC, glass flake epoxy, neoprene etc) using C.TAG/® UW2 adhesive.

For some applications it is more convenient to mechanically fix the C.TAG/® in place. In this instance C.TAG/® is supplied glued to a flexible Strap with slots for using either cable ties or Q Band (a proprietary strapping system) to fasten the marker in place. In the case of Q Band, tensioning and cutting tools are required for fixing markers to large diameter pipes. Strapped markers can be fixed to small diameter pipes and tightened by hand using protective gloves.

C.TAG/® can be bonded to ABS sheet/GRP Flexible strapping for fixing using the following methods : Adhesive Fixing
