Honoring the Life of Courtney Langdon-Codd

It is with great sadness we share the loss of Courtney Langdon-Codd, passing Thursday, September 9th, due to the Coronavirus. Courtney joined the MBK Team in 1998, serving in many different roles, including Sales, Customer Service, Supply Chain & Logistics, and finally Project Management. Courtney was a dedicated employee, problem-solver, and leader. You could always count on Courtney to do her job and step up to help others and lead the way. She mentored and trained many employees and was always patient and positive. Her devotion to the company and empathetic attitude toward her peers was exemplary to all. The MBK family will miss her greatly.

What is the Shelf Life of Adhesive Tapes?

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.
