Pressure-sensitive automotive tape is a popular solution for many mechanics and autobody shops. Not only does automotive tape streamline assembly and increase rigidity on a given project, but it also reduces weight and eliminates noise. At Tapeworks, we engineer pressure-sensitive materials to solve common automotive industry issues.
Types of Automotive Tape
While all automotive tape is designed to withstand aggressive handling, different types of tape are used very differently. The most common types of automotive tape include the following:
Masking Tape. Masking tape is used for temporary projects. In the automotive industry, it is most commonly used for labeling, bundling, marking, and temporary holding.
Fine Line Tape. Fine line tape is used when painting cars to create a line for two-tone separation or lettering. It is typically moisture and solvent-resistant and has a high adhesion level, making it useful for long-term projects.
Plating Tape. As one of the most durable types of automotive tape, plating tape protects materials that may be sensitive to chemicals or intense heat.
Double-sided Tape. Double-sided automotive tape is typically used for car interiors, as it is designed to withstand heat, cold, humidity, chemicals, and UV light. It often says hidden behind vehicle components, making it useful for changes to dashboards and other interior pieces.
