DOUBLE-FACE TAPE

Description: There are two types of double-face tape. One is a thick foam; the other is thinner, like cellophane tape that is sticky on both sides.

Buying information: Foam double-face tape is very strong and is considered permanent. Indeed, it can be used to secure something as heavy as mirror tile, but it is also commonly used to secure carpet, hang soap caddies, and much more. The cellophanelike tape is considered semipermanent, and can be used to secure signs, name tags, and the like.

How-to hints: It can be used on any nonporous material. The protective covering i13 peeled away and the tape applied, but the surface must be very clean. Clean it first with isopropyl alcohol. Take care to keep alcohol away from flame.
