Double-sided Film is any pressure-sensitive Film that is coated with adhesive on both sides. It is designed to stick two surfaces together, often in a way which is not visible in the end product, due to it being in between the objects rather than overlaying them. This allows for neater-looking projects and better craftsmanship. Double-sided Film can be either thin or dimensional. Dimensional Film is thicker, and is of particular use to retail and signage uses where it can be used to allow signs or displays to stand out with a 3-D effect. Double-sided Film is created by applying a thin adhesive layer to each side of a carrier material. For example, double-sided tissue Film, an easy-to-rip double-sided Film, is created by applying adhesive to two sides of tissue paper, which is then wound with a silicone paper to avoid it sticking to itself. Most adhesive Films are manufactured in log form, such as a large 1 to 3 meter wide roll, and then an adhesive Film converter is used to slit the rolls into the required widths. Double Tack Mounting Film has twin coatings of permanent adhesive on both sides of an ultra-thin carrier protected by two sheets of heavy release liners. It bonds instantly to paper, fabric, wood, metal, plastic and glass surfaces. Archival with white polyester liners, clear polyester carrier (or center) and an acrylic-based adhesive. This formulation is acid free. To use, simply lift up one of the release liners, apply the sticky side to the subject, then remove the other release liner before applying to the surface.
