Slitting & Converting

Bristol Tape Corporation stocks factory standard sizes and log rolls of many different products. When those stock rolls are unavailable or the customer needs a non-standard size, we have the ability to slit the material according to the customers' specifications, providing tape converting for any configuration you may need. In some instances, the customer also requires tape converting with tighter and more precise tolerances than normal due to their own production needs. Listed below are Bristol Tape's standard and precision tolerances that are available for precision slitting services.
