Tapes: Specialized Adhesives

What are Tapes?

Tapes are adhesive materials that can either be in sheets or in rolls and are used to bond two surfaces together. Tapes come in a wide variety of material compositions and styles to meet nearly any application requirements.

Pressure Sensitive Adhesive Tape

Adhesive formulations that bond with nominal applied pressure for efficient and reliable permanent or reusable securement.

Transfer Tapes

Adhesive free of internal carrier films that offer significant flexibility, conformability and movement.

Double Coated Tapes

Adhesive coated on both sides of a carrier film that offer added stability, dimensional tolerance control and ease of installation.

Custom Tapes

Special adhesive systems for reusable applications or bonding dissimilar materials with varying adhesive types featured on either side of the internal carrier film.

Laminating Tapes

Ideally formulated for laminating adhesive layers or protective films to mating components and materials like foam, rubber, thin film metals and plastics, fabric, paper and other substrates.

Foam Tapes

Adhesive coated on one or both sides of a foam core for single or double sided foam tape ideal for applications that require cushioning, vibration management, acoustic damping, temperature cycling, sealing and surfaces with highly varying levels.

Wide Variety of Available Solutions

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.
