What Are the Various Kinds of Tapes and Films Used in the Automotive Industry?

Adhesive tapes used in automotive production are distinctly different from other industrial adhesives, and they must be able to withstand a variety of stresses to meet specialized needs. Common types of automotive tapes include:

protective tape

  • Mounting foam tapes
  • Automotive masking tape
  • Double-side tapes
  • Temporary protection tape

We can work with a wide range of materials, regardless of the type of adhesive used. Materials we work with include foams, fabrics, single and double-sided foam tape, foils, paper, rubber, and more. Whether you need strong adhesive tapes for mounting automotive components or dealership decals, we can work with you to create the best possible die-cut products.

What Are Some Common Applications for Adhesive Tapes in the Automotive Industry?

Adhesive tapes are used in a wide range of applications in the automotive industry. Common applications include:


  • Protective films and tapes with removable adhesives are often used to cover windows, mirrors, taillights, freshly painted or unpainted plastic/metal surfaces, and other areas that require protection from dirt, scratching, and damage that may occur during assembly, transport, and storage.
  • Automotive masking tapes are often used to achieve clean lines during multi-color painting and finishing processes. These tapes must be able to withstand high temperatures and be able to conform to odd angles and shapes of a car.
  • Mounting foam tapes can be used to secure molding and cladding to the body of a vehicle. Mounting foam tapes must be able to create durable, long-lasting bonds and withstand elements such as cold temperatures, UV exposure, and more.
  • Vehicles interiors. Double-sided tapes and other mounting tapes are often used in vehicle interiors to hold and bond certain parts together. They can also be used to secure cables on rough or irregular interior surfaces.
