It's the stickiness that counts
Why does adhesive tape stick and still unroll? The secret is pressure-sensitive adhesives: they are permanently sticky and can adhere to various materials.
However, pressure-sensitive adhesives only retain their permanent tack at room temperature. They are less fond of cold and heat, becoming brittle or even tearing. It is best to store adhesive tapes at room temperature, protected from light and in a dry place. Adhesive tapes have different carrier surfaces, such as paper, film or fabric, which are coated with pressure-sensitive adhesives.
