What is a Double Coated Tape?

Before we take a look at our top 3 premium polyester film tapes, let’s define what double coated means.

“Double coated” tape (commonly abbreviated as DC) is also known as “double sided” or “double faced” tape. That is, it’s an adhesive tape that has adhesive on both sides instead of just one.

Double coated tapes are also typically pressure sensitive tapes, or PSAs. PSAs consist of a film, paper, cloth, foam, or foil carrier that is coated on both sides with a rubber, silicone or acrylic adhesive. 

The adhesive is protected by a release liner, which is removed when the tape is applied, or left in place until the surfaces to be bonded to are ready to be attached together. Release liners are commonly paper or films, with a silicone release agent.

The primary purpose of a double coated PSA is to stick two surfaces together. Double coated tapes are mainly used for laminating, mounting, splicing, gasketing, sound/vibration dampening, and appliances.

Typically, the adhesive is not visible on the finished product, creating a cleaner and modern design look. This is ideal for many applications, such as signage, windows, skylights, and many more.
