Principle of using seam sealing tape
Seam sealing tape is composed of two parts: the base material and the adhesive, which is used to join two or more unconnected objects together by bonding.The surface is covered with an adhesive coating. The earliest adhesives came from animals and plants; in the nineteenth century, rubber was the main component of adhesives; and in modern times, various polymers are widely used. Adhesives can stick to things because of the formation of bonds between their molecules and the molecules of the item to be connected, and this bonding can be firmly bonded together. There are different kinds of polymers depending on the brand and type of adhesive.
