Tapes are comprised of specialized adhesives in varying formats optimized for a wide variety of applications. They revolutionized the ability to join and assemble components quickly in industrial manufacturing, electronics devices, medical applications, automotive assemblies, labeling and virtually every other industry.
Because tape applications vary so greatly, there is a wide variety of available solutions with drastically different scientific formulations and mechanical presentations optimized for different uses. Surface energy compatibility, temperature range, conformability, adhesive strength, peel strength, shear strength, push-out strength, reusability, permanent bonding, and environmental resistance are just a few variable factors available to customize tape performance. Add to that the infinite customization possibilities in how these tapes can be fabricated to fit your unique applications can make selecting and designing an optimal tape solution overwhelming.
