Scotch Tape is a brand name used for pressure-sensitive tape. The precursor to the current tapes was developed in St. Paul, Minnesota by Richard Drew to seal a then-new transparent material known as cellophane. The tape consists of a pressure-sensitive adhesive coated onto a backing material such as paper, plastic film, cloth, or metal foil.
