Double-sided tape is a variety of pressure sensitive tape that is coated with adhesive on both sides. It is designed to stick two lightweight surfaces together.

Double-sided tape is often more effective with sticking objects, such as paper, cardboard, and arts and crafts together than regular tape is. Also, double-sided tape usually is not visible in the end product, due to it actually being in between the objects rather than overlaying them. This allows for neater looking projects and better craftsmanship. Besides this, double-sided tape is a highly effective grip for objects, such as the handle of a hammer, or the steering wheel of a car. This prevents the object from sliding in your hands, which could ultimately lead to possible injuries.

In addition, double-sided tape can be bought to secure clothing which is in risk of slipping down, such as strapless dresses or loose skirts, and as a temporary fix for fallen hems and other clothing imperfections. This tape is usually designed to peel away with leaving a gummy residue behind.

Double-sided tape is created by applying a thin adhesive layer to each side of a carrier material. For example, double-sided tissue tape, an easy-to-rip double-sided tape, is created by applying adhesive to two sides of tissue paper, which is then wound with a siliconed paper to avoid it sticking to itself.

Most adhesive tapes are produced in log form, i.e a large 1 to 3 meter wide roll, and then an adhesive tape converter is used to slit the rolls into the required widths.
