Foam mounting tapes are used to mount objects to a variety of surfaces both indoors and outdoors. They are either permanent or removable, though removable tapes may strip paint and damage wallpaper, banners, and paper-based signs. High-strength mounting tapes can hold up to 20 pounds while standard mounting tapes typically hold around five pounds. Foam mounting tapes are used to hang signs, attach numbers and letters for identification, and mount various objects in and around facilities. They attach to a range of materials including glass, brick, stucco, metal, and plastic. The foam also enables mounting to irregular surfaces.
