Drafting tape is a special type of adhesives used mostly by architects, engineers, and artists. The tape is characterised by its weaker adhesive and easy-to-tear, non-waterproof material, making it easy to remove without damaging delicate objects like paper. Drafting tape does not leave any residue when removed, making it useful for blueprints. The odour of drafting tape is less strong, and the surface feels more papery than rubbery. It resembles the so-called 'painter's tape' and the widely-known masking tape, but its width is less than half of the 2.5-inch painter's tape. Drafting tape is often used for drawing, but it can also be useful for hanging posters and labelling. It is usually sold in neutral colours like beige, off-white, or cream, so you can write on it.
Types of Drafting Tape
Many kinds of adhesives including drafting tape can be found in Office Kitten, which makes it one of the best sources for office supplies on the internet. Office Kitten gives you the drafting tape that you need at discounted prices with next-day delivery for even more convenience. We carry general purpose drafting tape, which is the choice of most engineers and architects for blueprints. The pH level of this paper-backed and low-adhesive is a neutral 7, and it peels off clearly and easily even when applied on delicate surfaces. It won't damage the blueprint, the paper, or affect the ink on the paper. The general-purpose drafting tape is also good for securing blueprints or drafting paper on the table or drawing board so that they don’t move around when drafting or drawing is in progress.
