Double-Sided Tape, also known as Double-Coated Tape or Double-Faced Tape is a pressure-sensitive tape consisting of film, foam, paper, cloth or a foil carrier, with an acrylic, rubber or silicone adhesive coated on both sides in any combination. Double sided tape is coated with pressure sensitive adhesive on both sides. When sandwiched between two surfaces, double sided tape forms an invisible bond between them. Double sided tape is designed to stick two surfaces together without being visible. Double-Sided Tapes are created when an adhesive is coated onto both sides of a carrier material. The tape is then wound with a release liner, commonly paper that has been coated on both sides with a silicone release agent. The carrier is typically a polymeric film, foam, paper, cloth or foil, coated with an acrylic, rubber or silicone adhesive. The adhesive can be the same on both sides or each side of the carrier can have different adhesive and coating thicknesses, referred to as a Differential Adhesive Tape. Double-Sided Tape, also known as Double-Coated Tape or Double-Faced Tape is a pressure-sensitive tape consisting of film, foam, paper, cloth or a foil carrier, with an acrylic, rubber or silicone adhesive coated on both sides in any combination. Double coated tapes can adhere to a wide variety of surfaces and are used in many applications such as bonding, holding, mounting, splicing, packaging and medical applications. Self-amalgamating tape is a non-tacky silicone-rubber tape which when stretched and wrapped around cables, electrical joints, hoses and pipes combines or unites itself into a strong, seamless, rubbery, waterproof, and electrically insulating layer.
