Double sided adhesive tapes: easier, cleaner and faster
Double-sided adhesive tapes are the best alternative to liquid glues (multi-purpose glue, paper glue, instant glues) when it comes to assembling components, both for domestic use both in professional contexts. The reasons why it is always better to use a double-sided adhesive tape instead of a glue are different, and refer to the ease and speed of application, but also to the best performance and the guarantee of clean results.
Let’s see them in detail.
5 reasons to choose double sided adhesive tapes instead of glues
Why use glues for fixing and mounting (temporary or permanent) of two parts, when you can achieve better and more efficient results with double-sided adhesive tapes?
A double-sided adhesive tape, compared to a glue:
- Is easier to use because it does not require any support tools to spread it on the surface;
- Is cleaner, because the adhesive is confined to a single band, does not expand on the surface and leaves no residues;
- Is faster to apply;
- It has greater grip, thanks to the adhesive composed of synthetic rubber resin.
Moreover, you don’t have to wait for it to dry, because its adhesive strength is instantaneous, the fixing is quick: no chemical reactions or drying processes are needed.
The greatest advantages can be seen in professional contexts
These reasons make the use of double-sided adhesive tapes advantageous especially in professional contexts, because the simple, flexible adhesion speeds up the processes and optimizes the final products. There is no toxic evaporation, and no further work needs to be done to remove adhesive residues. In addition, the fixing is virtually invisible because the tape is very thin.
