Conver-Dots Core Starting Adhesive Dots
Conver-Dots are the perfect method for attaching the leading edge of the web to the rewind core. A Conver-Dot is a film disk with an aggressive permanent adhesive on one side and a light removable adhesive on the second side. Conver-Dots come in roll form, on a liner. When the web is eventually unwound from the core, the liner removes cleanly from the Conver-Dot, leaving no residue on the back of the liner. The Conver-Dot remains on the core. (C225)
