Benefits of Double Coated Tape
3M double coated tapes offer speed, strength and improved aesthetics to your mounting application. Instead of mechanical fasteners such as screws, bolts and studs, double coated tapes leave no puncture holes. Our tapes can be easily applied by hand or with a dispenser, with no special application equipment required for a firm bond.

What is Double Coated Tape?
In general, double coated tape is composed of a foam, paper, film, or tissue carrier that is coated on both sides with pressure sensitive adhesive. The adhesive is protected by a peel-away liner that can be removed at the time of application or left in place until the joining surfaces are ready to be attached. Applications for double coated tape are found in construction, fabrication, arts, and hobby. For bonding rough or irregular surfaces, 3M™ Double Coated Foam Tapes fill gaps and distribute stress uniformly over the bonded area.
