VELCRO brand Hook and Loop fastening tapes
VELCRO brand polyamide fasteners consist of two mating components: hook and loop. The woven hook tape consists of minute, flexible hooks which engage with a mating loop tape comprised of small, soft loops. When pressed together, the resulting closure is adjustable and highly secure, available in a variety of different hook strength and cycle life characteristics.
The Velcro companies offer a wide variety of loop tapes (both woven and knit velours). Napped and unnapped woven loops are available. Napped tape consists of woven polyamide loops that are randomly disorientated in a separate operation after weaving. An unnapped tape is a woven polyamide tape that is not napped. The knit velour tape is suitable for applications ranging from high cycle to disposable use and also provides a low profile fastening closure.
