Invent of Tapes

Invent of Self Adhesive Packaging Tape:

Self Adhesive tape was first invented in 1925 by 3M Engineer, Richard Drew, in Minnesota, USA. Drew used to frequent auto garages to test the company’s sandpaper, and found that mechanic found it difficult to separate two colours while doing painting jobs on cars.

He then devised masking tape – a paper strip backed by light pressure-sensitive – so that painters could use them to keep the colours separate. This was the forerunner of the Scotch brand Cellulose tape, which was introduced in 1930. The waterproof transparent tape was made from oils, resins and rubber, and had a coated cellophane backing.

Needless to say, it was a big hit, people found hundreds of users for it, from sealing envelopes to lugging leaky pipes. Today it’s so popular that there is no corner of the globe – however remote – where you won’t find self adhesive tapes and carton sealing tapes.
