KEY MARKETS FOR PSA TAPE USAGE: BUILDING AND CONSTRUCTION
PSA tapes have surprising strength, longevity and durability, which makes them ideal for a wide variety of construction applications. For example, PSA tapes can be used to:
- Reinforce foundation membranes and keep water out
- Seal the argon gas between window panes
- Support and secure ductwork
From the Foundation to the Roof
PSA Tape is used for bonding applications throughout many buildings – from
the basement to the penthouse – and all places in between.

method for bonding in building and construction.
PSA tapes can also withstand moisture and extreme temperatures, so they do a great job on rooftops keeping the elements out. In addition, their ability to handle wind loads better than mechanical fasteners make PSA tapes a great choice for bonding architectural panels to the sides of buildings. Inside of a building, you’ll find PSA tapes everywhere. They’re an excellent option when you need to:
- Bond carpeting to the floor
- Attach muntin bars to windows
- Hold moldings and decorative trim in place

Communication is made easier with PSA Tapes. They’re used extensively as adhesive sheeting to secure directional and branding signage both inside and outside of buildings. PSA tapes can even be used as a stencil for sandblasting decorative glass panels.
Insulating electrical, plumbing or HVAC with PSA tapes is another construction practice you may not be aware of. Last but not least, PSA tapes can be used as a tinted film on windows to control room temperatures and protect furnishings from UV rays.
Growing the Role of PSA Tape in Building and Construction
PSTC embarked on a research study to identify the behaviors and decision drivers that influence tape usage in the building and construction industry.
