If you want to mount a mirror to the wall permanently or affix a carpet on the floor temporarily for a three-day exhibit. If you want to hang up a picture without using nails because you want to remove it later without residue – and also because your landlord doesn’t like holes in the wall. If you are a newspaper printer and want to optimize you splicing processes. Or if you are designing new facade elements that need to stay in place, even during a fierce storm. Then double-sided adhesive tapes are your perfect choice.
Double-sided tapes are used for many different industrial applications and also by craftspeople and consumers. They are perfect for bonding two parts permanently and irreversible; for attaching them firmly while still being able to reposition them; or simply for affixing things for a limited period of time. Depending on the components used within a tape, the tape offers specific characteristics that make it suitable for specific applications. The kind of adhesives, backings, primers, etc. making up the adhesive tape define its characteristics and can be adjusted perfectly to the demands of an application.
Adhesive tapes consist of various functional layers. The adhesive layer can be applied to either one or both sides of the backing (to create single- or double-sided tape). The typical structure of double-sided adhesive tapes is outlined in the following diagram.
The proper choice of the adhesive depends on how the double-sided tape is to be used: the kind of surfaces and materials which are to be bonded, how long the bond is supposed to last, and whether it is an indoor or an outdoor application.Double-sided tapes can be easily applied to the backside of objects and are thus invisible. Especially when affixing decorative items or when putting up posters, they are very convenient. By now, the load-bearing performance has become high enough that adhesive solutions are a smart alternative to drilling. Instead of damaging the wall and causing dirt, you can just use a double-sided adhesive tape to securely mount your objects.
