The tape has coated blades. It saves them from abrasion and increases the lifetime. The tape extends and collapses smoothly. The blades are 19mm in thickness and 5m in length.
The outer shell of the tape is made of ABS material. ABS is short for acrylonitrile butadiene styrene. This is polymer is famous for its hardness, gloss and electrical insulation properties.
The tape has precise marks for measurements and gives accurate measurements up to +-0.2mm.
The tape locks itself when it has reached the precise point of measurement. This allows a smooth motion and prevents quick retraction.
The tape has variable lengths, the longest being 5 m. This makes it versatile to be used in many tasks.
