Those of us not familiar with auto or car restoration, painting, or even art décor is not aware of how extensive is the use of tapes. They are used for masking while spray painting is going on. The adhesive strip is placed on corners and centers which should not receive any paint at all. This method is also used while painting the walls of the house. Whence you place an adhesive strip and begin spraying spaces and corners with masking tape remain completely devoid of paint as you desire.    

This is known as masking and when it is applied to cars or other vehicles it is called automotive masking. This product line finds extensive use in the auto industry and a number of adhesive variants are available mostly in strip form.

Tapes are also used for filling gaps or jambs in various parts of the cars. Most often tapes are used for this purpose. The purpose is for masking but they are used as cushions or shock absorbers. Invariable gaps creep in between doors, windows hatch to name a few.  Tapes are used in cars as shown in the sketch above. Thus the strips serve a dual purpose for cars and other vehicles. This should explain the extensive use for the readers here. You can simply not all instances where these adhesive strips are used and gawk at the usage. Ha!

pateluday, Thank you for practical information, pretty pictures and product lines.
Sometimes the computer does not cooperate with smaller images, such as next to the article title. What is the image left of your main title?
In particular, I quite like the illustration under the subheading Sketch Car Tape Application. It shows all the ways tube tape works for its purchaser.

I like the versitility, filling cracks. Finding something to adhere to metal is difficult enough, so this should be most useful for many purposes. One nice feature of Wizzley is becoming aware of unfamiliar things.
