About Tape

Adhesive tape is used anywhere a seal is needed or where two items need to be joined together. There are a wide variety of tapes available.

What is Tape?

Adhesive tape consists of a material called a backing or carrier that is coated with an adhesive. It may or may not have a release liner. The adhesive-coated backing carrier is wound up to form a jumbo roll of tape. The jumbo roll is slit into narrow width bands to form several rolls of tape.

Tape Benefits

Tape is a quick and easy way to create a seal or bond two surfaces together. Specialty tapes can be used for very specific applications.

Easy to Use

In many instances, tape can be a more efficient option than glue when working on a project with a tight timeline. There is less clean-up involved in the use of tape, and it takes less time to get a job done. Tapes can provide construction-strength adhesion even when joining challenging dissimilar surfaces.

A Variety of Applications

Adhesive tapes have so many different applications. Duct tape and masking tape are very common for household and contractor applications. There are other tapes that are good for applications such as electrical, insulation, sealing and more. In order to choose the right tape to use, you need to consider your job, your materials and your field conditions.

Temporary or Permanent Bonding

Adhesive tapes can be used for both temporary and permanent bonding applications. For temporary bonding, you will want to select a tape that will adhere quickly but come off cleanly. For permanent bonding, you will want to choose a tape like acrylic adhesive tape. Depending on your project, there is a tape to fit your needs.

Tape Accessory Types

Foil and FSK (foil scrim kraft) tapes are typically used for installation of ductwork, radiant barrier insulation, basement wall insulation and laminated metal building insulation.

Vinyl

Vinyl tapes are used on the seams of water heater blankets as well as vinyl metal building insulation. Vinyl tape can also be used as electrical tape to insulate wires and other materials that conduct electricity. Vinyl tape resists wear, weathering and abrasion so it is tough and long-lasting.

It can be used to close corrugated fiberboard boxes, reinforce packages, bundle items, unitize pallets and more. Fiberglass filaments embedded in the tape give it high tensile strength.

Foam

Foam tapes are used for sound dampening, insulating, gasketing, cushioning, padding and sealing. Each type of foam has unique features and ideal purposes. Foam tape is typically double sided and can be made from strong materials like acrylic, neoprene, polyethylene and polyurethane foam. It can withstand high levels of vibration.

ZIP

ZIP tape is made of an advanced acrylic adhesive. It creates an airtight and watertight seal that can withstand harsh weather. It is used in roof and wall applications. ZIP tape can be applied by hand or with a tape gun. It is ideal for sealing and flashing.

Doubleback

Doubleback tape is typically used with the tabs on metal building insulation. It is applied to the tab and then fixed to the building.

Butyl

Butyl tapes use a specialized rubber adhesive system. It is less temperature sensitive and maintains its tackiness at lower temperatures. It is flexible in cold weather and more stable in high temperatures. Butyl tapes are extremely durable and are often used in applications where an airtight bond is required. It forms a permanent bond.
