How to use double-sided tissue tape?

This tape is good for temporarily fixing two surfaces together, e.g. holding down rugs on slippery floors. Apply the tape to the edges of the item to be fixed. Peel off the release paper or film to leave a layer of glue-coated tissue behind. Press the item to the surface firmly.

Apply to clean surfaces. Clean surfaces before applying the tape so that the adherent is not covered with dust, dirt or lint. This will affect how well the tape sticks to the surface.
Avoid Heat. Do not use it directly on hot surfaces as the adhesive may melt and lose its ability to stick. If you are using this kind of tape on surfaces near heat sources, such as installing insulation behind radiators, be aware that it may not be as long-lasting as in other applications
Choose the right size. Tissue tapes come in various sizes, so measure well and ensure you use an appropriate width of tape for the job.
Frequently Asked Questions
In this FAQ section, we will answer some of the most commonly asked questions about double-sided tissue tape, including properties, industrial uses, and best practices.

Is tissue tape removable?

Because of its strong bonding capabilities, double-sided tissue tape is not designed to be removed or repositioned. Ensure you apply the tape carefully and avoid using it on fabrics, wallpaper or paint in visible areas if it is likely to need removing.

Is tissue tape permanent?

Tissue tapes using a rubber resin hotmelt adhesive are designed to provide permanent bonding. In some cases, where tissue tape is used on very hot surfaces, the bond may be compromised and lose stickiness.
Tissue tapes which use a water-based modified acrylic adhesive are also designed to be long-lasting, though may lose strength after one to two years.

Is tissue tape waterproof?

Yes, tissue tapes with both rubber resin hot melt and water-based modified acrylic adhesives are water resistant. The bonds these adhesives create cannot be dissolved once applied. This makes them excellent choices for indoor and outdoor use.

What industries use double-sided tissue tape?

Double-sided tissue tape is used in many industries, including but not limited to shoe-making, leather, paper, white goods, eCommerce packaging, postal, and carpet-fixing.

What other types of double-sided tape are available?

Double-sided tapes are useful because they help bond two surfaces together quickly and with little mess, for a reliable, permanent bond. At Yousan Tape Products, we manufacture and supply a range of double-sided tapes for industrial, eCommerce and personal use. As well as tissue tape, the types of double-sided tapes we provide are:

Acrylic Tape – Tape with acrylic adhesive, providing stable, weatherproof bonding even at extreme hot or cold temperatures and high humidity.
Hot-Melt Coating – These tapes provide an immediate bond and remain highly flexible on application.
Scrim Double-sided Tape – a reinforced transfer tape to provide extra strength, suitable for plastering, automotive, foam and rubber industries.

How to remove double-sided tape?

While the double-sided tapes we supply are intended to be permanent, accidents happen and occasionally we need to remove the tape. There is no guarantee that you will be able to remove double-sided tapes that are designed for permanence, and depending on the adhesive type, attempting to remove double-sided tape can damage the surface.

If you do apply tape to the wrong area, attempt to remove it as soon as possible with warm water, a sponge, and a knife.

Water-based acrylic adhesive: This type of glue forms a permanent bond once its water content has evaporated, so acting quickly is important. Use a sponge to wet the area completely and attempt to peel back the tape. You could use a knife or scraper to push the adhesive away from the surface.
Rubber resin hot-melt adhesive: It may be possible to remove hot-melt adhesive tapes with heat, but the temperatures required for this are not domestically achievable and are likely to damage the surface.
It is important to emphasise that these tapes are designed to be permanent, and attempts to do so will cause damage. It is better to be over-prepared and only apply to the intended locations when absolutely certain.
