Universal Tape Company offers a wide variety of stock, as well as custom coated, double and single coated foam tapes. 

Our standard products consist of 1/32”, 1/16” or 1/8” white PE foam coated with either acrylic or rubber adhesive systems. 

Our custom coating abilities allow for various color options (ie: gray, black, white) as well as additional thicknesses up to ½” thick base foam.  We have several adhesive options we can coat to best fit your application, including multiple permanent formulations, as well as removable adhesives for temporary mounting applications.

Our coating lines allow for roll lengths up to 864’ and widths up to 63”, while our converting department can slit to widths as narrow as 1/8” and provide spooled roll lengths up to 10,000’.

Foam tape is a versatile and practical adhesive product that consists of a foam core with adhesive coating on one or both sides. It is used in a variety of applications due to its unique combination of properties:


Foam Core: The core is typically made from materials like polyurethane, polyethylene, or other synthetic foams, providing flexibility, cushioning, and support.


Adhesive Coating: The adhesive layer can be acrylic, rubber-based, or other pressure-sensitive adhesives, tailored to different surfaces and conditions.



Adhesion: Offers strong bonding capabilities to a wide range of materials including metal, glass, plastic, and wood.


Flexibility: Conforms to irregular surfaces, filling gaps and providing an even bond.


Cushioning: Absorbs shocks and vibrations, making it ideal for sensitive applications.


Insulation: Provides thermal and acoustic insulation, enhancing comfort and energy efficiency.


Weather Resistance: Some of our foam tapes are resistant to moisture, UV rays, and temperature fluctuations, suitable for both indoor and outdoor use.



Mounting: Used to mount objects like signs, mirrors, and hooks without the need for nails or screws.


Sealing: Provides a seal against air, moisture, and dust in applications such as windows, doors, and HVAC systems.


Padding: Acts as a cushion to protect fragile items during shipping or to prevent vibrations in electronic devices.

Gap Filling: Fills gaps between surfaces in automotive, construction, and industrial settings, ensuring a snug fit and finish.



Ease of Use: Simple peel-and-stick application without the need for additional tools.


Clean Removal: Often leaves minimal residue upon removal, preventing surface damage.


Versatility: Available in various thicknesses, widths, and densities to suit specific requirements.



Single-Sided Foam Tape: Adhesive on one side, typically used for padding or insulation.


Double-Sided Foam Tape: Adhesive on both sides, primarily used for mounting and bonding applications.

Foam tape is an indispensable tool in both household and industrial settings, offering a reliable solution for a multitude of tasks that require strong adhesion, cushioning, and sealing capabilities.

For best application results, bonding surfaces should be clean, dry, and well unified before applying foam tape. The ideal application temperature range is 70°F to 100°F (21°C to 38°C), however, we have adhesive options for both low and high temperature use.  Applying tape at temperatures below 50°F (10°C) is not recommended.
