Most tapes are made to lie as flat as possible, but foam tapes are the exception. This unique style of tape offers a much-needed cushion that truly comes in handy with certain applications. Whether you're mounting a precious piece of art or you're packaging fragile materials, foam tape could be just the solution you need to ensure that you get a secure level of adhesion while still protecting the items you're taping.
Foam tape is really quite versatile when it comes to potential applications. Some of most popular uses for foam tape strips and foam tape squares include:
- Mounting nameplates, posters, maps and other lightweight objects
- Decorating surfaces such as ceramic tile and painted walls
- Sound and vibration dampening in copy machines, industrial equipment, etc.
- Electronic component packaging
- Thermal insulation
- Aiding in component cooling
These and other applications make foam tape especially versatile both at home and in business and industrial settings. It has a quick-stick application that makes it easy to use. Several foam tape products are also formulated with an adhesive that is made to stick well to both flat and irregular surfaces. You can easily cut foam tape to the exact size and shape that you need for particular areas. Most importantly, the cushion of the foam helps to protect walls, provide sound and vibration deadening and offer thermal insulation and other unique properties.
Foam tape is available in traditional rolls, which is great for cutting strips to the exact length required for the task at hand. For many types of mounting applications, like hanging posters or nameplates, some customers prefer foam tape squares with a simple peel and stick design that makes them especially easy and convenient to use. Whichever type of foam tape you prefer, you'll get it at a great price by ordering from FindTape.
