Title: Adhesive tape and method for producing it

Abstract: The invention relates to a method for producing an adhesive tape for redetachable closure or fixing, comprising a strip-like carrier (1), which is being coated with a self-adhesive agent (2), at least on the active area which during use of the adhesive tape is brought into contact with a counter surface (7), and also relates to the adhesive tape as such. For improving production of the adhesive tape, several methods are suggested, according to one of which in a first step the active area is coated with a self-adhesive agent (2) forming a continuous layer, and in a second step, in order to reduce the effective entire adhesive area, a non-adhering or less-adhering separating pattern (4) is printed on the self-adhesive layer.
