Types of Cloth Tape, Woven & Non-Woven Fabric Tapes

Cloth Tapes consist of cotton, polyester, acetate, nylon, and rayon woven, or non-woven fabrics with acrylic, rubber, or silicone adhesive. Often the cloth is coated with materials such as foil, PTFE, polyethylene, silicone, rubber, or vinyl, making the tape flexible, durable, waterproof, fire-resistant, or otherwise distinctive. Cloth Tape has a variety of uses and is commonly referred to as Duct Tape, Gaffers Tape, Spike Tape, Carpet Tape, Medical Tape, Athletic Tape, Glass Cloth Tape, Binding Tape, Friction Tape, or Hockey Tape.

Woven fabrics are created by weaving or knitting yarns while nonwoven fabrics are made of natural or synthetic fibers interlocked mechanically, thermally, or chemically. Nonwoven fabrics have diverse properties, such as stretch, resilience, absorbency, liquid repellency, washability, flame retardancy, cushioning, filtering, bacterial barrier, and sterility. Some nonwoven fabrics can be recycled after use and are often used in health care, apparel, home furnishings, transportation, industrial, and consumer goods.
