An adhesive tape or gum is used to fix, or bond broken items and in most cases is in liquid or semi-liquid state. Some tapes are designed to work after heat has been activated and in most cases, these kinds of tapes are used in packaging for instance in cigarette packs.
There are several forms of adhesive tapes which can be used in many unique methods. Double sided tapes have two tacked sides, which makes them best for sticking two different surfaces together in case they are not going to be attached by the edges. The tape can resist high-temperature changes, has distinctive widths, colors, and thickness. Most times these kind of tapes are used to perform light jobs although there other varieties which are stronger and can be used to perform other tasks.
There other types of tapes, for example, foam adhesive tapes which at times offer water tightness and in most cases, they are found in seals on doors or windows. Some of them which are single or double sided tacked are bought to regulate heat in the house. They are ideal for areas with much movement like in the doors as a result of their cushioning properties which also enables them to flatten or expand.
Some tapes will be used in circuit boards, for insulation, and in the aerospace field especially those which are made to withstand high temperatures. But, a few tapes might be used for fitness and safety motives especially anti slips tapes that are used at the brink of stairs or steps. They resist friction and also prevent sliding and in most places, people, will use the yellow and black ones for people to see them.
Glass or surface protection tapes are a bit different from others because they are often purchased in wider rolls as they are designed to cover wide and large surface areas. When painting or when repairing walls people will use these tapes to keep their kitchen utensils clean, protect their carpets and also cover glass windows as well as covering the surface.
Low tack tapes are like glass tapes because they’re designed in a manner that they cannot damage the cloth which they are stuck to. They are a bit narrower than others and in most cases, they are used to cover narrow places like window frames as well as door frames.
Tapes can be used to perform other duties not only joining or fixing some broken edges. Some will be used to pack especially gift items where they are used to seal boxes or cartons transporting electronics. Tapes also are used to fix broken parts like glasses, broken toys, plastic plates shoes and other materials.
