Description

Double-sided tape is created by applying a thin adhesive layer to each side of a carrier material. For example, double-sided tissue tape, an easy-to-rip double-sided tape, is created by applying adhesive to two sides of tissue paper, which is then wound with a siliconed paper to avoid it sticking to itself. Most adhesive tapes are manufactured in log form, such as a large 1 to 3 meter wide roll, and then an adhesive tape converter is used to slit the rolls into the required widths. One type of double-sided tape, known as lingerie tape, secures clothing to skin, and is used with strapless dresses or loose skirts, and as a temporary fix for fallen hems and other clothing imperfections.
