The adhesive tape
The adhesive tape is a plastic or a paper tape on which an adhesive substance is applied.
It could be sticky in one side or in both sides (double sided adhesive tape). In the second case one of the two sides is often protected by a film.
The adhesive tape is used to stick the objects in a temporary or permanent way. It sticks as soon as it gets in contact with the object.
The inventor was the American Richard Drew who merchandised the tape in 1930. It came out in Europe only in 1937.
