What is flexible magnetic tape?

- May 29, 2019-

Flexible magnetic tape consists of a long, thin strip of magnetised rubber. Flexible magnetic tape can come with or without adhesive on one of its faces to allow it to attach to both ferromagnetic and non-magnetic surfaces.

Flexible magnetic tape is very similar to a flexible magnetic sheet, the only difference is that the tape is narrower. A flexible magnet is considered to be flexible magnetic tape if it has a width of less than 76.2mm (3").


Flexible magnetic tape can be used to attach fabric to a metal frame for display purposes, labelling, to make shower door seals, or to temporarily attach seasonal decorations to a metal wall.

When a section of magnetic tape has been cut, it is known as a magnetic strip.
