  • About double sided tape

    A double-sided tape is one which is coated with an adhesive on both sides of a carrier material and is wound with a release liner to stop the tape sticking to itself.

    Double coated tape is used to permanently bond two substrates together and can do so invisibly, as opposed to overlapping them. Depending on the type used, a double-sided tape also offers benefits such as sealing and gap filling, in addition to bonding. A mounting tape is a proven and reliable alternative to traditional fixing methods and offer a range of benefits such as reduced assembly times and enhanced quality.

    We offer an extensive range of double coated mounting tape from World leading manufacturers, including 3M tape, tesa tape, Scapa tape and more. Click on the products tab for more information. Go to double-sided foam tapes here.
