Which tape, glue or adhesive is right for you?
Whether you want to bond two sheets of paper, two blocks of wood, or simply hang a frame on the wall, you'll find a variety of tapes, glues and adhesives to meet every need.
Invisible tape- There are thousands of uses for this household, office and classroom staple, so be sure you have plenty of tape on hand! From sticking a small note to the computer monitor to displaying a child's drawing on the refrigerator door, nothing is as quick and easy to use as a roll of invisible tape. And here's a bonus for the office: invisible tape does not show on scans or photocopies.
Packing tape- Whether you're storing photos or holiday decorations in the attic, shipping books or electronics overseas, or moving an entire household to a new location, you'll want the packing tape that's right for the job. Some packing tapes include built-in dispensers that make it quick and easy to seal and protect boxes. Some tapes offer a lightweight hold for seasonal storage while others have adhesives designed to last for many years.
Specialty tape-We've got it all: masking tape, shipping tape, double-sided adhesive tape, restickable tape and more! Need to label containers for freezer storage? There's a tape just for that. Need to safely repair or label photos and archival documents? Be sure to choose an acid-free tape. You'll also find tapes designed for artist canvases and outdoor use, as well as premium performance tapes for securing heavy boxes.
Glue and glue sticks-Whether it's poured from a bottle or rolled from a stick, glue can be found in nearly every classroom, office, home and workshop. Keep a glue stick in your desk to reinforce the seal on envelopes. Use super glue to mend a broken cup. Teaching a group of young artists? Save time and money and go for the gallon-sized bottle of pourable glue that's nontoxic, washable and safe for classroom use.
Adhesives- Some adhesives are designed to hold for just a few minutes or hours, while some offer a permanent hold. It's important to know what you need before you buy it. Cement offers a lighter hold, while epoxy features a more durable bond. Polyurethane is water-resistant, making it a good choice as a woodworking adhesive. Putty is best for light repairs, while adhesive spray sets more quickly. These are just a few of the options available. Before you start your project, be sure to choose the adhesive that will work best for your materials and goals.
