Anchor 111 – White – Low-Tack
This tape is a fairly thick rubber tape with an easy release white liner. A filler is required to ensure tape is secured firmly to the stone.
Stock widths: 12", 18", 25", 30" Available to order: 15", 20"

Anchor 112 – Red – Low-Tack
Available in 12”, 18” and 25” widths, this tape is thicker and has a red heavier, thicker liner than the white tape. A filler is required to ensure tape is secured firmly to the stone.

Anchor 120 – Dark Blue – Medium-Tack
Available in 25” width this tape can be used without filler but is not as adhesive as the high-tack tapes.

Anchor 125 – Orange – High-Tack
Originally designed as a hand cut this tape can be used on flat-bed plotters, friction feed plotters may struggle to keep the tape straight because of the orange easy release liner.

Anchor 128 – White – paper liner - Low-Tack
Lightweight paper backed tape designed for glass etching but is suitable for stone. Requires a filler to ensure tape is secured firmly.

Barnier
This paper tape comes in 3 different sizes (6”, 9” and 12” widths). It has a liner which allows you to feed it through a photocopier which is often used to transfer designs onto the tape for hand cutting. We recommend that you use a heated knife to cut this tape, you will probably agree once you've tried using a cold blade!

Tesa
This paper tape comes in 3 different sizes (6”, 9” and 12” widths). It has no liner on the tape so you need to stick it directly to the stone before you put the design onto it. As with the other paper tape (Barnier) we recommend that you use a heated knife when cutting the tape.

116
This tape was originally designed to be used on untreated wood. On visiting the USA on a trip to the Anchor factory we saw this tape and realised it's potential for the stone industry. It has since become the most popular individual anchor product. It is a sprocketed tape suitable for use on most plotters, the sprockets fit the gerber plotter, friction feed plotters can grip the release liner without gripping the tape.

155
Following the success of the 116 tape Anchor released this tape to target the friction fed plotters. It is identical to the 116 but has no holes in the liner. The tape comes in the more familiar 20” and 24” widths suitable for most friction feed plotters.

117 (15”), 153 (20" and 24") and 157 (30”)
The low-tack version of the anchor 116 and 155 tapes.

T150
A high tack thin rubber designed for use in the stone industry. The buff coloured tape is flexible enough to grip even rough stone whilst still providing good blast resistance. The tape has an orange easy release liner.

T226
T226 is the same tape as the T150 but instead of using the orange easy release liner it comes with a paper backing material.

Stonemask 2000 – Blue – 15”, 20” and 24” high tack
The Stonemask range is a range of pvc tapes designed by ourselves specifically because we wanted an alternative to anchor tapes. The 2000 is a blue pvc tape 45 microns thick and comes with a paper backing.

Stonemask 3000 – Green – 15”, 20” and 24” high tack
This tape has the same construction as the 2000 but is a translucent green in colour and comes on a clear liner. This has one major advantage that you can see through the tape when positioning it on the stone, thus enabling you to see any existing lettering or design on the stone when locating the new lettering.

Stonemask Pink – 12”, 18” and 24” high tack
The StoneMask Pink was launched at the NFE in 2009. It's a translucent PVC based tape which comes on a clear liner like the green, enabling the user to see through the tape when lining up stencils on the stone. The cut lines on the tape are clearly visible which makes for easier weeding out. And finally for the more frugal amongst us, the backing liner can be used to protect the glass in your cabinet because it's completely clear.
