Affixit Adhesive Tape - A Complete Guide to Foam Tape

December 2022

A Complete Guide to Foam Tape

In this article, you will find answers to most of your questions about foam tape, including its end uses and a wide range of applications. The variety of foam, sponge rubber and tapes available allows for endless combinations when foam tape is paired with an adhesive. As a consequence, the possibilities for the implementation of foam tape are technically limitless. We'll look at foam tape in more depth and discuss its various uses and benefits.

What is Foam Tape?

Foam tape is a high-performance adhesive tape made of foam with pressure-sensitive characteristics. The adhesive films can be found on either one or two sides of the foam strip and are meant to be easy to apply, use and clean. 

Foam tapes are highly customisable and available in a variety of lengths, sizes, densities, adhesives, cell structures, textures and colours. The best choice depends on the user's intended purpose. Used by professionals or DIY enthusiasts in their day-to-day tasks, foam tapes’ high versatility make them ideal for a wide range of uses and surfaces of all kinds.

What is foam tape used for?

Among the most popular applications of foam strips are:

Moisture protection
Dust sealing
Basically, adhesive-coated foam tapes are used to level uneven surfaces. If the space between two areas is too wide, a thicker foam tape can be applied to close it up. A foam tape is usually designed to improve the performance of an object or surface and to enhance its general appearance.

Foam tapes are ideal for automotive, electrical, or construction applications. They are often used in place of mechanical fasteners (rivets, bolts, screws, and welding materials) because of their ability to withstand a high level of vibration. 

For the construction industry or DIY projects, foam tape's high strength and durable seals can stop gas, dust, fluid, air, or sound from escaping between two matched machine parts or around pipe joints. Among other applications are enclosures for electrical devices, airtight compression, shed windows, doors, showers, roofing, etc. For hard-to-reach places, foam tape is an excellent option, and it can be manufactured in multiple widths.
