Humans use tapes every now and then. For every paper that has been accidentally cut in half, to wrap a carton to keep the items from going outside the case they placed it in, or to protect someone else from taking whatever is inside this specific box. They all have function but may come in with different handy purpose for every other person out there.
But these adhesive rolls were actually made in large sizes and numbers. That is why people often wonder how they came to become these small sizes which people see today. Using an advanced slitting machine, they have been able to slice through these huge tapes to make them reach the size which most of today has been seen. And these narrow slit tapes are what have been considered by most to be the commercial product.
Slitting is actually a process which slices logs of tapes into thinner and handier pieces. Using Winding and slitting machines, they are precisely cut into the desired shapes they should be like those which are set on the market. This is to meet every clientele standards to ensure a smoother deal with them. Also, they are more accepted and sellable once they do follow through the standard amount and quality.
Every commercially sold tape in the market goes through these machines to carefully divide them. To ensure that these products are actually made to match in style and shape to those being sold in book stores and department stores. Once that is done they would then get delivered towards retail stores who booked with them.
Anyways there are many common tape types which you can find being used every day by normal people or those who are professionals. They all have distinctive features that would let you immediately identify them and special functions and even uses as well. They have the ability to link two broken items and merge them into one. And some of the following will be enumerated below.
Electrical tape. These tapes come in various colors and sizes. They are meant to bind any lose wiring from their rubber material cover which protects them. This is to avoid the live wire from causing any electrocution onto the person handling it.
Duct tape. This is a kind of tape which is sensitive to fiber or cloths. But this strong adhesive is durable when weighed against the other tape types. It is a waterproof material which was originally planned to keep the water or any moist out of the reach of ammunition.
Masking tape. Out of the other materials, this one has the thinnest quality. It tears up like paper and is known as the something which supports painters. For the sole reason of its easy quality in actually tearing, it becomes easy enough for it to be torn apart.
Double sided tape. There are materials through which people would like to be taped properly without any bulges in the wall. However, the other kinds of adhesives are simply not durable. Therefore, with a tap which has double sides, it can function in the same manner while maintaining a smoother finish.
