Covid 19 has been ravaging the world for over a year now. As of May 10, 2021, the disease has affected more than 150 million people in 220 countries and territories, and the number continues to grow every day.

Our frontline warriors: doctors, nurses, EMTs and everyone on the battlefield are putting their own lives at risk. They are staying away from their families to avoid exposing them to Covid and spending extra overtime treating those infected.

These people deserve the best protection that can be offered to them. PPE kits and masks are an absolute necessity, but in addition to this, companies like Adhesive Specialties have a large range of adhesive products that should be used in addition to PPE kits and masks. These products are relevant not only for frontline workers, but also for corporations, industries and every individual.

Types of Adhesive Tapes That Can Provide Better Protection Against Covid 19

There are several tapes that can help enhance protection against the virus, some of the most effective ones are the following

Sealing tape for PPE seams

This tape is made from a specially treated polypropylene film that also has a special antibacterial EVA adhesive and is designed to resist wear and tear. It is used to seal seams in non-woven protective clothing used by medical personnel. The product is suitable for use at low temperatures and has fast bonding and high adhesive properties.

Heat activated tape for sealing PPE seams

The tape is similar to Self Adhesive PPE Seam Sealing Tape, the main difference is that this tape must be applied using a heat sealing machine

Fabric tape D/s

Double-sided fabric tapes are generally available in several sizes. The tapes are lightweight fabric coated with hot-melt or acrylic adhesive. During a pandemic, this tape can be used to secure PPE suits for medical teams and first responders.

Polyester tape D/s

Double Sided Polyester Tape is a polyester film coated with solvent acrylic adhesive on both sides for quick bonding. The tape has a flexible carrier material and high adhesive strength for curved surfaces. This tape is extremely useful in making screens and can be used to connect foam padding to the backing sheet, especially since it has excellent heat and moisture resistance.

Lane Marking Tape

Lane marking tape typically has a specially formulated rubber adhesive coating on PVC that promotes adhesion, grip and good grip strength. The tape must also have good resistance to solvents, oil and usually water. As social distancing is the norm, lane marking tape, which is applied using a lane marking machine , is ideal for use both indoors and outdoors to mark spaces at least 6 feet apart so people can stand

Anti-slip tape

Most hospitals are extremely busy places throughout the year, but with the Covid 19 pandemic, traffic can feel like an expressway with people rushing back and forth. To ensure the safety of medical teams as well as patients in hospitals, the use of anti-slip tapes is essential. These tapes, which are usually made from a special material that is resistant to water and solvents, are primarily used to provide a slip-resistant surface to prevent slipping on dry, wet or oily floors. They can be used on ramps, stairs, emergency exits and anywhere else where there is extremely heavy foot traffic

Sticky mat

Generally, we all prefer our environment to be as free as possible from germs, dust, dirt, etc. Covid 19 has taken another step forward, as the disease mercilessly attacks the human immune system, everyone must be even more careful, especially medical institutions and clinics. The sticky mat is used as a dust collection pad and is suitable for use when entering a room to keep it clean. The mat has peelable sheets that effectively remove dust from the soles and heels of shoes to greatly minimize the environmental impact of dust and maintain a clean surface. The mat is extremely easy to use and can also be kept at the entrance of your home.

Polyurethane foam tape

Polyurethane foam tape is also an excellent tape to use for face shields. It provides a foam core for protective screens and has exceptionally good adhesion and high shear strength

Covid 19 is a pandemic that has affected the entire world, some countries are still suffering from the disease while others are slowly recovering. With this disease, the main thing we can say is that we must do everything possible on our part to keep ourselves, our loved ones and those around us safe and protected. Frontline warriors deserve the best protection they can get, but we also have a responsibility to keep ourselves safe.
