Double Sided Tape
Smart adhesives: Smart innovations
Double-sided tape is a pressure-sensitive tape 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.
Created by applying a thin adhesive layer to each side of a carrier substrate material, Double Sided Tape, also known as double-coated tape or double-faced tape, is widely used by a vast array of industries for applications such as bonding, holding, mounting, splicing and packaging.
Some brilliant uses for Double Sided Tape:
- Keeping pictures on a wall - It depends on the weight of the picture, art or frame, but you can easily use double-sided tape to keep your favourite pictures on the wall or even on the desk at your office. Just make sure that the surface that you stick the tape on won’t strip the paint.
- Stair treads - Similarly to applying carpet and rugs, you can apply double-sided treads to your stairs to reduce the risk of slipping and to protect your stairs from wear and tear. Simply cut the stair treads and apply the heavy-duty double-sided treads underneath. Once done, firmly apply the treads to the stairs.
- Using double-sided tape to enhance your fashion - Double-sided tape is great to use to get the perfect look. Many women use double-sided tape to get their fashion apparel to sit perfectly on their bodies. For example, taping down your belt strap so it sits perfectly.
