  • Normal temperature range foam tape can withstand is -40°F to 300°F
  • Resists moisture, ultraviolet rays from the sun, and solvents
  • Provides high bonding strength to compensate for different thermal expansions

It’s important to pay close attention to the specific properties of each foam tape when deciding which is best for your application. Variations in foam tape densities, thicknesses, adhesive systems and cell structure allow for a great variety of end uses. The success of your finished product depends on specifying the foam tape that best suits your application.

Foam Tape Uses

Foam tapes are ideal for use in appliances, automotive applications, electrical/electronics, shower and bath, truck/trailer/RV, point-of-purchase signage, window fabrication, and plastic molder/extruder applications. They are often used in place of mechanical fasteners (rivets, bolts, screws, and welding materials) because of its ability to withstand a high level of vibration, its high strength and its durable seals against cold, dust, gas, liquid, sounds, etc.

Examples of Foam Tape Applications

Foam tapes are used in many bonding and sealing applications. Great examples of foam tape applications are found in the automotive industry, and include bonding plastic emblems onto metal substrates as well as the sealing of windows, doors, sun roofs, and trunks/hatches. Foam tapes are also used extensively in the HVAC and construction industries for a variety of applications.

Another common use for foam tapes is for weatherstripping. You will usually see it placed along doors and windows to keep cold and hot air outside. When there is an insufficient seal around a window or door, foam tape is great for closing the gaps and offering a solid, long-term, cost-effective solution to replacement. provides an excellent video below for the application of weatherstripping.

Foam tapes are also used as gasketing tapes. Adhesive-coated foam tapes are compressible sealants that close up an area between two matched sheets of glass, machine parts or around pipe joints to prevent the escape of a gas, fluid, air, or sound. Some application areas include electrical enclosures, shed doors, and garage doors. Foam tapes are an excellent alternative to rubber foams or sealants/caulk.
