Once painted, it will be strong and sealed.
The adhesive strength of this product is the strongest in the glue tapes . When we compare the adhesive strength of our products, which are now sold as glue tapes , to our products (right-hand test), this product is approximately 1.25 to 2x. It is possible to seal it tightly by the coating. In our research, “the person who paints twice from uneasiness to the adhesive power” was 37.8% in the user* . This product improves the adhesive strength and increases economy and efficiency.
* A study of the use of the glue tapes for 500 students and social persons using “about 4 to 5 days a week” or “about once a week”. In July 2013, the Tombow Pencil was carried out.
New mechanism Pitasystem from the beginning
The new mechanism Pitasystem has been developed in response to the fact that it is possible to slip into the sky at the beginning of painting. When it is finished, the reel is rotated slightly and the glue tapes advances about one millimeter. In this idling mechanism, the adhesive tape always fills the head tip. This is what we call “Pitasystem”. The structure, when pressed against the paper, the head moves about 5 millimeters upward, and supports the paper to adhere with a uniform force. The head returns to the original position when the body is released from the paper after it fills. Applying the force back to the head, the tape reel is finely rotated to advance the tape about one millimeter, feed the adhesive tape to the head, and prepare for the next use.
A survey of people using glue tapes for more than three days a week※, The top of the point of dissatisfaction with the glue tapes (general) was “the decrease of the glues is fast”, and the second place was “it is not possible to apply it to the paint introduction”.
This product meets the demand of these users by adopting the high adhesive power tape which does not need to be painted twice, the Pitasystem which is applied from the beginning. In addition, the glue tapes of this product is light transparent blue, so you can see the place where it was applied by eyes.
* Survey on the use of 92 people who use glue tapes for more than three days a week. In December 2013, the Tombow Pencil was carried out.
