Depending on the tape, different properties are present. The bulk of 3M tapes are pressure sensitive, meaning that a small amount of force is necessary to get it to stick. Many 3M tapes including duct tape are water and high temperature resistant. Aluminum tape is heat and light reflective, a good thermal conductor and resistant to water and solvents. Vinyl tape is abrasion and corrosion resistant. It comes in up to 9 colors and won't fade. Thread seal tape helps to make pipe fittings airtight and waterproof, while foam tape is available with both single and double-sided adhesive and is a great padded adhesive choice.
