How did ‘Velcro’ get its name?

The name was derived from two french words back in the 1940’s. Crochet and Velour.   Velour for the loop and Crochet for the hook — fascinating isn’t it!?

How do you know if you have purchased a Quality hook & loop product?

There are a few distinguishing features that tell you that you have purchased a quality product. These are as follows : The product has a release liner which has printed repeatedly the Registered Genuine Velcro logo.
The packaging features the Genuine Velcro logo and supplies you with a Lot# which provides quality reassurance and control of stock. Velcro is a Quality endorsed company ; The Velcro companies are accredited to ISO 9001:2002

I want the quickest easiest way to attach hook and loop to fabric ;

We recommend using the Stickyback product for use on fabric – This product is especially designed for this purpose. We do not recommend using the adhesive backed products onto fabric.

Can I get custom-made straps or cut pieces of hook and loop?

Yes. V Tapes offer many converting capabilities, from converted and die cut components to complete finished goods. We can produce cut pieces and straps custom made to your requirements.  Please visit or call 0800 483527 to discuss this with our helpful team.

My hook is clogged up with little pieces of stuff. How do I clean it?

Cleaning debris out of the hooks is similar to cleaning hairbrushes – and using a stiff brush or another piece of hook are the best methods. It can take some effort – after all, the hooks in the tape are made to grab! The optimal solution is prevention: the hook portion should be covered at all times, so it does not grab onto anything it should not – like a blanket or hair. Always engage the hook and loop before washing to prevent the hook from picking up lint.

How do I remove the adhesive residue?

We recommend a citrus-based adhesive remover. There are several commercially available, as well as a product called Goo Gone® available from Mitre 10 or Bunnings Stores.  For thick adhesive, you may need to use Meths and some elbow grease to get the residue off. We advise that you spot-test any remover before using and always clean off the surface after using any cleaner.

What should I use to clean the mounting surface before using your adhesive backed products?

You can use any cleaner that will not leave a film or oily surface. We recommend Isopropyl Alcohol
