Converting tapes and flexible materials requires special machinery and distinctive know-how. Since 1971, the MBK team has the experience, expertise, and converting capabilities to offer tailored solutions for a wide variety of applications. From a simple slit to complex die-cuts, MBK transforms raw flexible materials into usable products.
This year, MBK Tape Solutions is celebrating 50 years in the tape converting business. Founded by John Kaminski in 1971, the business has passed from father to son for three generations. Being a family run company, relationship building with their customers, vendors and staff is critical to making a successful company. With that being said, the company has earned a reputation for integrity, outstanding customer care and innovative tape solutions.
Though 2020 was a year full of challenges, it was also a year of insight and opportunities. Being a medical tape converter, we stayed open for business while adhering to CDC guidelines. Our employees and vendors worked tirelessly to provide converting services and products to our customers. We supplied materials and fully assembled PPE face shields to customers, other manufacturers as well as to the community at large.
During this highly contagious pandemic, safety protocols require frequent cleaning, disinfecting and maintenance of high-touch surfaces. 3M offers new durable protective films which feature an optically clear hardcoat layer containing an antimicrobial agent.
MBK Tape Solutions is honored to help support our U.S. Veterans by giving construction tape products to the non-profit organization, Homes 4 Families. MBK donated rolls of masking tape, colored vinyl marking tape, electrical tape, aluminum foil tape and duct tape to the Veteran affordable housing development project being built in the City of Palmdale, a Los Angeles community.
MBK Tape Solutions has been approved as a Thomas Verified Supplier and COVID-19 Response Supplier. Thomas has confirmed that MBK provides accurate business information on the Thomasnet.com supplier discovery platform and has undergone a complete review and validation of all products and services currently offered. In addition, MBK was confirmed as a COVID-19 Response Supplier, offering adhesive tapes and flexible materials, assembled face shields, safety products and other manufacturing services to the current shortage of critical PPE supplies.
MBK’s employee and recent graduate of CSUN, Madison Camp, recently coordinated with the Deaf Studies Department to distribute MBK face shields to the Deaf Community in the Los Angeles area. These face shields help the deaf communicate clearly while simultaneously offering protection.
To ensure the safety of employees, customers and the community, MBK Tape Solutions offers a variety of Stay Safe solutions from fully assembled PPE face shields to temporary mounting of signs, protecting floors, marking safe distances, sealing contaminated containers, fastening partitions and much more.
MBK Tape Solutions is super proud of our three college graduates, Rosie, Madison and Yessenia, who have worked at MBK diligently while pursuing their education at CSUN. Keeping with safety protocols, MBK celebrated their accomplishments with cupcakes for those working at the facility and a team conference call with our staff working remotely.
During these uncertain times, you may be wondering if your adhesive tape inventory has gone beyond its shelf life. The shelf life is considered the period of time an adhesive remains usable after being manufactured and before the material is converted for a specific application. Typically, the manufacturer’s shelf life for a pressure sensitive adhesive is one to two years when stored out of direct sunlight, in ideal temperatures of 60° to 80° degrees Fahrenheit and at 40 to 50 percent relative humidity. However, there are many factors that play into the life of your product.
