Transfer tapes are double-sided tapes used for fast bonding, mounting, and fastening. Transfer tapes consist of adhesive protected on one side by a release liner. The liner is peeled off to attach objects such as photographs, boards, nameplates, and posters. Transfer tapes come in different strengths, with low-strength tape used in crafting applications and high-strength tape used for heavier-duty mounting. Some high-strength transfer tapes bond to difficult, low-energy surfaces like plastic. Other transfer tapes are popular in the packaging industry for their strength and easy handling. Transfer tapes quickly bond to a variety of materials including paper, metal, and cloth.
