Adhesive tapes are a type of material used to provide a temporary seal or hold objects together. Adhesive tapes are often made of plastic or polypropylene, coated with a mixture of an adhesive and a pressure-sensitive adhesive on the opposite side of the backing. Adhesive tapes are used in many different industries and applications, including packaging and shipping, automotive, and construction. Adhesive tapes can be used to seal boxes, protect surfaces, and provide temporary sealants. Adhesive tapes also come in a variety of colors and sizes, and they can be printed with custom designs.
