How does double-sided tape work?

Double-sided adhesive tape is adhesive tape that has adhesive on both sides. They offer countless possible uses and have fixed tasks in many industrial sectors. In the automotive industry, for example, emblems, moldings, sills, spoilers and other attachments are assembled with double-sided adhesive tape. Double-sided adhesive tape is very often used when laying floor coverings such as carpets, but also to make signage. For these examples, however, you cannot use any random adhesive tape, but rather a double-sided adhesive tape with appropriate properties should be selected.

The adhesive tapes obtain their special properties from the carrier material, the material where the adhesive is applied, as well as from the adhesive applied. An exception are adhesive transfer tapes, which are pure adhesive between two protective films without a central carrier.

What makes a good double-sided adhesive tape?

While commercial adhesive tape mostly relies on “all-purpose glue”, which bonds uncomplicated surfaces quickly and relatively firmly, a good double-sided adhesive tape offers you a lot more. Specialized adhesives and carrier materials ensure exactly the desired adhesive strength, from easily removable to extra strong. In addition, they offer you additional properties that make the double-sided adhesive tape particularly reliable and pleasant to use.

This includes:

  1. Very good adhesive features
  2. Very good rolling behavior
  3. Ease of workability
  4. Resistance to environmental influences
  5. Surface protection
  6. Can be used on rough surfaces
  7. Can be used indoors and outdoors
  8. high temperature resistance
  9. Water resistance

Which double-sided tape is right?

The agony of choice. In order to create a secure bond according to your ideas, the right double-sided adhesive tape must first be selected. Depending on where and how you want to use the double-sided adhesive tape, it must meet different requirements. For example, weather resistance is important for outdoor use. A double-sided adhesive tape that is UV-resistant, temperature-resistant and waterproof does not become brittle or yellow and does not attack the bonded surface. In other cases, for example when gluing on walls or floor coverings, you often work with uneven, rough surfaces. This requires an adhesive tape with a high degree of adaptability, for example through a fabric or foam carrier.

Which materials should be connected?

The properties of the surfaces to be bonded are particularly important for the bond strength. How well and with what a material can be bonded depends on the so-called surface energy. Put simply, this describes the wettability. In the case of a high-energy surface, the applied water runs; bonding is easy, because the surface is easy to wet. With a low-energy surface, on the other hand, round water droplets form, and bonding is rather difficult here. However, specialized adhesives that have a high adhesive force have now also been developed for such difficult-to-bond surfaces.

High-energy surfaces (such as metal, paint, glass or porcelain) generally offer adhesives better adhesion than medium-energy surfaces (such as wood, PVC, polyester or cement) and these in turn offer better adhesion than low-energy surfaces (such as rubber, silicone or natural rubber).

On each of our product pages you will find three scales that show you at a glance how well the double-sided adhesive tape of your choice adheres to high, medium and low-energy surfaces. The most common materials are listed as examples. In this way you can quickly and easily see how well the selected double-sided adhesive tape is suitable for a wide variety of materials.

Tip: You can also use the practical filters in the shop. This way, you can easily restrict your product selection by surface area.

Surface nature

In principle, it is easier to glue a smooth surface than a rough or structured surface, because the adhesive tape can almost completely lie against the substrate. But there are also numerous solutions among our double-sided adhesive tapes for bonding on rough or structured surfaces. However, it must be ensured that the surfaces to be glued are free of dirt, dust or grease, only then can the adhesive completely wet the surface.

Tip: We recommend testing the surfaces to be bonded before each application for the compatibility of the adhesive and to assess whether the surfaces allow a connection. If possible, this test should be carried out under the real conditions of the planned connection. To do this, attach a strip of the selected double-sided adhesive tape to an inconspicuous place and peel it off again after a rest period of about 12 hours.

Should the double-sided tape withstand any of the following loads?

  • heat or cold
  • temperature fluctuations
  • UV radiation
  • humidity
  • mechanical stress
  • static load
  • chemical exposure

A look at the detailed description of the product shows you whether the selected adhesive tape is particularly suitable for this.


Whether narrow or wide, for smooth or rough surfaces, whether transparent or particularly temperature-resistant: In the product description you can see the most important information about the selected double-sided adhesive tape at a glance. In addition to the data on dimensions, bond strength and durability, you will also find additional information to help you choose the best double-sided adhesive tape for your needs:

  • What surfaces is it suitable for?
  • For what purposes is it recommended?
  • Can it withstand special loads?
  • Which adhesive was used?
  • How is the tape used?

Which double-sided tape is extra strong?

Depending on what you want to use the double-sided adhesive tape for, the greatest possible adhesive force is not everything for you. The time it takes for the adhesive used to develop its full adhesive strength can also be decisive for you.

For example, double-sided adhesive tape with acrylate adhesives can develop a very high final adhesive strength on suitable surfaces. Its insensitivity to stress, such as high temperature or UV radiation, make it a durable solution for many areas of application. However, acrylate often takes several hours or even days to develop its full adhesive strength. If you want to glue large areas quickly and reliably - for example in trade fair construction or when laying carpets - this can be a hindrance. In these cases, you need a double-sided adhesive tape with immediate adhesion and a high initial adhesive strength. For this purpose, adhesive systems use synthetic rubber, for example.

Can the double-sided adhesive tape be peeled off without leaving any residue?

While some adhesive tapes (often with acrylate adhesive for an extra strong hold, for example) adhere aggressively and create a permanent connection that can hardly be detached, there are certainly adhesive tapes that can be removed from the bonded surface without any visible damage to the adhesive - for example, to correct a faulty bond to correct. It is essential to use double-sided adhesive tape, which is recommended for the respective surface. For more information on removability and the period in which the product can be removed, see the product description.


  • Always pull off the adhesive tape slowly and at a 90° angle.
  • It can be helpful to use a hair dryer to warm the tape.
  • Special care is required when using spatulas and other sharp tools, as these can damage the surface permanently.
  • Adhesive residues can possibly be removed with numerous agents such as oil, soapy water, acetone or special adhesive remover, but CAUTION: just test chemical agents for compatibility on the surface.

Process double-sided adhesive tape correctly

  1. Clean the surfaces to be bonded so that they are clean and free of grease. Lint-free cleaning cloths and special cleaning agents without moisturizing ingredients are suitable for this.
  2. Avoid touching the adhesive film if possible. Sometimes it is also advisable to wear suitable gloves - pay attention to the relevant information in the product description.
  3. Pay attention to the recommended gluing temperature. This is often between 18°C and 23°C but can vary depending on the product. This will prevent the adhesive performance from being impaired.
  4. Make sure that the contact pressure is even on the entire adhesive surface, particularly effortlessly using a squeegee as an aid, for example.
  5. For some adhesive applications with difficult surfaces, it may be advisable to use a primer that matches the adhesive.

In summary: the most important things briefly

With double-sided adhesive tape, a reliably strong adhesive strength is usually important. This depends on the surfaces to be bonded, with smooth surfaces generally being easier to bond than rough ones. To make the perfect choice, however, it is worth taking a closer look:

Which surfaces should be glued?

Different surfaces require different adhesives for a strong bond due to their different surface energies. There are different adhesive tape recommendations for high, medium and low energy surfaces.

What is the condition of the subsoil?

Whether smooth, rough or porous: Depending on the structure of the surface, different types of carrier material are recommended. Fabric supports, for example, are particularly adaptable and very suitable for rough and uneven surfaces. Fleece and foam support can have insulating and vibration-damping properties.

Does the double-sided tape have to adhere immediately?

You can tell how high the immediate adhesion of a double-sided adhesive tape is by the initial adhesive force. Some products are extremely strong, develop their full adhesive effect, the final adhesive strength, but only after hours or days.

Are there special loads or are special functions important?

For specialized adhesive applications, a double-sided tape specially developed for this purpose is recommended. Professional quality products have a variety of special functions, from UV resistance and vibration damping to residue-free removal.
