Find the Right Strength and Thickness You Need

Choose different tack strengths and thicknesses – known as profile – to best suit your project.

Tack Levels

Standard Glue Dots tack (strength) levelsStandard Glue Dots® tack (strength) levels:

  • Low
  • Medium
  • High
  • Super High

Super High Tack creates a permanent bond. Low or Medium Tacks are considered removable.

Low Tack contains some oil. Test absorbent surfaces for bleeding. Glue Dots are produced using a variety of synthetic, rubber-based adhesives. To give these adhesives their removable capabilities, varying degrees of oils are used. In most cases these oils will not discolor surfaces. However, the effects of the oils vary based on the absorption properties of the substrate. As the strength level increases, the concentration of oils decreases. We recommend thoroughly testing the adhesive on given substrates where discoloration is a concern. To speed up testing times, we suggest applying dots to the substrates and heating them up to 150 degrees for three days at room temperature after six months.


Glue Dots® are available in three profiles (thicknesses).

Glue Dots are available in three profiles (thicknesses).

Profile: Low for flat items, medium for other shapes
