For years now the use of adhesive tapes in commercial enterprises has been increasing. Primarily in construction, fabrication and factory goods production, “sticky” tapes have a wide variety of uses.
When it comes to the commercial uses of adhesive tapes, one cannot overlook what is probably the most commonly used in Double Sided Tape. With such a huge variety of uses now, from glazing to carpeting to electrical work, sale for this make of adhesive tape has skyrocketed.
Gaffer tape, or Gaffer’s tape is another with a very broad range of capabilities. No longer is it only used by professional stage gaffers themselves; it seems to be most commonly used as a form of Duct Tape, even more so that the original form of duct tape itself.
Copper tape, (which is exactly what it sounds like) is now commonly used in the electrical engineering industry, due to it’s electrical conductive qualities. Although copper is a highly expensive commodity, it’s use has grown extensively due to improvements in construction efficiency. It seems the cost of such an adhesive tape is still proving to be highly profitable in the long term.
This topic is to be continued in future articles, as there is too many regularly used adhesive tapes to consider for now.
