Zipper tape is improved based on the general tape. First of all, the amount of glue used in the middle of the tape is cut off significantly. Secondly, the middle region where there is less glue, is buried with a plastic track. When zipper tape is cut, due to decrease in glue, the plastic track in the middle region exposes easily, making it easy to identify. However, because there is some glue, the track holds to the tape without falling off. When we take the tape off, we don’t take the whole tape off but only hold the edge of the plastic track and pull. Designed as a zipper, when we ”unzip” the tape and it leaves clean and beautiful pattern
