Double Sided Strong Tape – Types and Uses

A double sided strong tape is a versatile and useful product with many different applications. It is different from traditional tapes, as the name suggests, because they have two adhesive sides, and this feature is actually what makes it so usable and suitable for various tasks.

Most often used to stick two surfaces together, typically in a way that it can’t be seen in the final product, the double sided strong tape has made its way into many other applications. In car manufacturing, the double sided strong tape has been used for years now to replace rivets and fasteners. It is used to attach everything from dashboards to specialty car appliques. In truck and RV manufacturing, the product is used to fasten exterior mirror glass to the mirror housing bezel, bond panels together, or simply bond fabric to sun visors in truck cabs. In the industrial manufacturing process, the tape is used to splice one item to another to ensure an uninterrupted manufacturing process.

Types of Double Sided Strong Tape

There are two main types of double sided strong tape available on the market: those with thick bonding system and those with thin bonding system. The thick bonding system tapes are often a better option to use on unusual, non-uniform, or highly textured or patterned surfaces. Tapes with thick bonding systems generally have a foam carrier layer and tend to vary significantly in strength.

Both systems can use either rubber or acrylic adhesives. Both have their advantages, but rubber tapes are often cheaper and not recommended for intensive long-term applications. Acrylic tapes, on the other hand, cost more but also age much better. They are less sensitive to heat or light, and more resistant to the majority of chemicals. One disadvantage of this type of tape is that it can make weaker bond in the initial application, although the hold does increase with strength over a few hours. So for short-term projects, a rubber tape might be a better option.

What Surfaces Double Sided Strong Tapes Stick Best?

Regardless of the surface you will be working with, some procedures should be taken to ensure satisfying results. To start, surfaces should be washed clean with a mixture of water and alcohol, and then wiped dry. If possible, stick surfaces together at room temperature. Wait a couple of days after the application for complete bond strength. The types of surfaces that double sided strong tapes stick best are paper, metal, acrylic paint, cardboard, and properly sealed wood. Teflon, silicone rubber and powder-coated metals are some of the surfaces you should avoid.

Using Unique Uniforms to Create a Great Image for Your Restaurant Business

Leaving a great first impression can make a big difference on how your business is perceived on the business scene and this is especially true when running a restaurant business. The image you create for your restaurant can have a major influence on its reputation and success. Most restaurant businesses are focused on providing excellent food, but the taste and presentation of your meals is not the only thing that matter when it comes to making a lasting first impression on your customers. Don’t get me wrong offering delicious meals and a range of beverage options to go with them is sure to bring you more customers. However, your customers won’t be that pleased if these tasty dishes are served by waiters that aren’t appropriately dressed for the job. After all, no one wants their food served by a waiter dressed in a wrinkled shirt and a pair of jeans.

Your staff, including waiters, chefs, cooks, hosting staff, and bartenders are the image of your restaurant and you need to make sure they represent it in the best way possible. The design of your restaurant uniforms can play a major role in this. They can help establish the style of your restaurant. For instance, restaurants where one can have a great time and enjoy tasty meals in a relaxed ambience often dress their staff in casual uniforms with embroidered patches that have some funny picture of silly saying sewn into them. Upscale restaurants, on the other hand, where one would go to have a romantic dinner with a loved one or wine and dine with business partners would have hosting staff, waiters and bartenders dressed in more formal uniforms with ties and embroidered patches that are designed to represent the brand or logo of the restaurant.

Embroidered patches are the details that make your uniform eye-catching and unique. They come in wide range of creative designs, so you can surely find one that best suits your restaurant’s style and theme. In addition to using decorative patches on your uniforms to make your staff look presentable, choosing a uniform style that compliments the interior design of your restaurant is another great way to capture the attention of your customers. If your restaurant has a casual ambience with rustic features than denim aprons, shirts and chefs’ jackets might be the ideal option for you. They have a practical yet chic design that can make your staff look presentable, trendy, and cool all at the same time. If you have a more contemporary venue with dramatic urban décor then uniforms that match your décor pieces in terms of colour or design might be the ideal choice for you.
