Adhesive tape is one of many varieties of backing materials coated with an adhesive. Several types of adhesives can be used. Some of the types of tapes available e.g. Pressure sensitive tape, Water activated tape, Heat Sensitive Tape, Drywall Tape, Reflective Tape etc Pressure sensitive tape, PSA tape, self stick tape or sticky tape consists of a pressure sensitive adhesive coated onto a backing material such as paper, plastic film, cloth, or metal foil. It is sticky (tacky) without any heat or solvent for activation and adheres with light pressure. These tapes usually require a release agent on their backing or a release liner to cover the adhesive. Sometimes, the term "adhesive tape" is used for these tapes.

A specific type of gummed tape is called reinforced gummed tape (RGT). The backing of this reinforced tape consists of two layers of paper with a cross-pattern of fibreglass filaments laminated between. The laminating adhesive had previously been asphalt but now is more commonly a hot-melt a tactic polypropylene. Water sensitive tape is used for closing and sealing boxes.
