Find out how these tapes can be constructed and their ideal applications.
Double-Sided Tape Construction

While double-sided tapes can be constructed with varying thickness and bonding properties, they are all manufactured with a pressure sensitive adhesive (PSA) on both sides. They also typically have a silicone Double Sided Tape layer or a similar non-stick layer applied on top of the adhesive to ensure the sides don’t stick together when wound on a roll.

Double-sided tapes can be constructed with either thick or thin properties.

Thick: made with a foam backing and is typically greater than 0.25mm in thickness
Thin: made with a film-like backing or no backing material

They can also be formulated with acrylic or rubber PSAs. Acrylic PSAs offer the following benefits:

Ability to handle extreme temperature
Chemical resistance

Rubber PSA benefits include:

Good immediate grab strength
Suitability for less demanding applications

Whether a double-side tape is constructed as thick or thin and with an acrylic or rubber PSA depends on various end-use needs.
Double-Sided Tape Applications

Double-sided tape can be used in a variety of applications. In the transportation market, double-sided tapes excel at accessory and trim applications.

They offer unique adhesion and stress relaxation properties without impeding overall aesthetics. Additionally, double-sided tapes for automotive applications offer good resistance to environmental conditions, yielding superior long-term performance.

Double-sided tapes are also used in various construction applications. These include house wrap and vapor barrier sealing and floor protection during projects.
