A differential tape is a double sided tape that is coated with a different adhesive on either side of the tape’s carrier. Differential tape products are ideal for applications requiring temporary holding, repositionable placement and for permanently bonding two different substrates where one is easy to adhere to and one is difficult to adhere to.
