Construction tape is a type of very sticky adhesive tape used to help assemble new items. It is typically found at hardware stores or home-improvement retailers, usually in rolls with typically five to fifty feet of tape per roll, which are generally yellowish in color. This type of adhesive tape can be used instead of nails and screws for some uses, because it has an extremely strong hold that will not easily detach from the materials being attached together.
One common use for construction tape is attaching wires against walls and inside objects like desks, shelves, cabinets etc., instead of drilling holes through surfaces. A user might run some wiring along the back wall of their living room for example; they could attach the wire up the wall using long sections of construction tape. This is a cleaner way to run wires for a cleaner look, and it allows the user to hide cables anywhere they wish by running them along the surface of what they are attaching them against.
Construction tape can also be used similarly with some types of cloth instead of using silk pins or sewing thread, for example in clothing construction or home decoration. It can even be used as type of adhesive bandage if necessary, because its adhesiveness is very strong (but should not generally be used on skin). Construction tape can hold together objects like wood boards that might otherwise be difficult to fasten into place without nails or screws.
Other uses for this type of adhesive tape include its use as an edge protector when moving potentially fragile items, for example if a person were packing glassware or other items made from tempered glass. It also can be used as a type of cushioning tape to help prevent damage, such as preventing coins from being scratched when stacked together during transport.
Construction tape is available in several different colors and thicknesses depending on its use. The most common color is yellow, but it may be found in oranges, browns, blues and even black or white for certain uses. Its thickness depends on the particular model of construction adhesive tape, but it will generally range between 0.15mm and 1 mm thick. The thicker models might have a pattern embossed into them allowing for better grip under certain conditions (for example wet conditions).
In consumer usage construction adhesive tape is often used as a cheaper alternative to similar but more expensive types of adhesive tapes such as duct tape and masking tape. This type of electrical or general purpose adhesive tape is often found in rolls and may be variously colored and patterned depending on its intended use and manufacturer. Construction adhesive also comes in wider “fencing” style versions for certain applications, such as sealing moisture barriers around the foundation of homes during construction periods.
