Are you looking for a passionate DIY project to throw yourself into this season? Or perhaps you just want to fix up a few things around your home? Did you know that adhesive tape can be utilised in a multitude of DIY projects, renovations and revitalisation of things around the home and workplace? There are many types of adhesive tape out there, with a range of uses from art, framing and construction. We’ve put together the 5 main types of adhesive tape that can help you stick to your next DIY project.

Strapping tape

A durable, strong-binding adhesive often used in carton reinforcing, strapping tape can be an incredibly valuable resource to those hoping to become a denizen of DIY living. On an industrial level, strapping tapes are used broadly throughout distribution processes for heavy duty binding and carton reinforcing. Our strapping tape range also includes 1-way and 2-way reinforced filament tape with a 50-63kg breaking force. Moreover, we stock strapping tape in a range of colours and sizes, for all your project needs.

Gummed paper tape

In businesses, this kind of kraft backed tape is mainly used for sealing boxes to be stored in cold environments containing items to be refrigerated or frozen. However, on a creative level, gummed kraft paper tape and rubber solvent adhesive tapes for carton sealing, colour coding, book binding and picture framing. Venhart gummed paper tapes come with water-activated backing, natural rubber or synthetic adhesive.

Foam tape

For anyone looking to build or rebuild an object, foam tapes come in rolls and pads for mounting, bonding, air and dust sealing, water sealing, joining and sound insulation. Venhart single and double-sided foam tapes and foam pads are also used in the transportation, construction and glazing industries. Our foam tapes are made of high quality foam with the option of natural or synthetic rubber adhesive, ranging  in widths from 12mm – 32mm, and coming in variable lengths.

Masking tape

Masking tape can be used broadly indoors and outdoors, in high and low temperature environments and often used by painters to create sharp paint lines. A staple for the DIY master, our masking tape widths range from 12 – 72mm and 50m lengths.
