Double-Sided Tapes are created when an adhesive is coated onto both sides of a carrier material. The tape is then wound with a release liner, commonly paper that has been coated on both sides with a silicone release agent. The carrier is typically a polymeric film, foam, paper, cloth or foil, coated with an acrylic, rubber or silicone adhesive. The adhesive can be the same on both sides or each side of the carrier can have different adhesive and coating thicknesses, refered to as a Differential Adhesive Tape. Double coated tapes can adhere to a wide variety of surfaces and are used in a wide variety of applications such as bonding, holding, mounting, splicing, packaging and medical applications.
