Non-conductive double-sided adhesive tabs

Non-conductive double-sided tabs are useful for AFM, LM and SEM applications where conductivity is not the first requirement. Micro-Tec ENT12 Easy-Tabs are a direct replacement for the popular Lift-N-Press tabs, which are no longer available. ENT12 Easy-Tabs have a diameter of 12.5mm and consist of a thin polypropylene carrier with a film of strong adhesive on both sides. ENT12 Easy-Tabs are supplied on a siliconised paper strip and are covered with a siliconised paper tag, which has a small tab for easy removal. They provide excellent adhesion, even on “difficult” surfaces.

To use, Lift the tab with the tag of the backing strip, press the sticky surface to the mount and then peel back the tag leaving the adhesive tab behind. They have excellent adhesion to smooth surfaces, such as metals, plastics, glass, paper, plus small particles or fibres. ENT12 Easy-Tabs are compatible with Ø12mm and Ø15mm AFM discs, Ø12mm mica discs, Ø12.7mm SEM pin stubs, Ø12.2mm JEOL stubs and Ø15mm Hitachi stubs.


Advantages of Easy-Tabs:

  • High strength thin adhesive tape (80µm) combined with high tack
  • Smoother surface for better particle detection
  • Longer shelf life and lower outgassing
  • Supplied on a roll
