Packaging tape or adhesive tape is primarily used for packaging purposes. It was Richard Drew who developed this product during the 20s. The material that he used at that time to create this tape was cellophane. Therefore it was popularly known as the Cellophane tape. The product with a sticky surface was developed as a sort of masking that could be used with different types of industrial products. It was in 1930 that the first commercially developed cellophane tape was delivered to a customer. In the same year another similar product was developed by the 3M Company. The name of the product was the Scotch tape. Since then endless varieties of this product have been created.

Coming to the present, the packaging tape is widely used in almost all forms of packaging as well as other uses too. It is available in a wide range of sizes. The sizes vary from half inch to two inches. Usually packages that are meant for shipping are packed with tapes measuring one and half inch to two inches. Today different types of materials are used to make the adhesive tape. Therefore you get tapes made from rubber, paper, foil, fiberglass, silicone, cellophane and acrylic. The selection of material depends on the required strength for bonding.

Today apart from packaging purposes this tape is also used for ductwork, electrical wiring, to strap containers and to hold carpets on the floor. To suit different requirements there are also tapes that have the sticky substance on both sides. Some are reinforced (sealing purposes) and others have Velcro and foam (insulation purposes). There are also tapes meant for special purposes like the double-sided black foam tape, the vinyl acrylic tape, the polyimide tape and so on. Moreover there are different styles too that comes with dispensers. The adhesive tape not only makes things convenient for us but is also a necessity.
