Tape is a pressure-sensitive adhesive bonding material used to seal boxes and keep contaminants out, provide insulation, or bind together two or more parts of industrial equipment. Tape is generally rich in adhesive and can be transparent or made of different colours.
Importance of tapes
Tapes have a wide variety of applications. They can be used to do anything, from packing and labelling to sealing. Naturally, they are important across every type of industry, offering the following benefits:
Tapes are durable and long-lasting and offer capabilities such as sealing, shielding, insulating and dampening.
Tapes can be used to join irregularly shaped surfaces.
Tapes can be used to make prototyping cheaper.
They provide increased security to the sealed materials.
Tapes are a better alternative to glue while binding surfaces incompatible with liquid adhesives.
