Versatile Product Constructions
Specialty Tapes product constructions include high temperature silicone adhesives, in both double coated and adhesive transfer tapes, differential coated silicone/acrylic adhesives, acrylic, rubber and butyl adhesive tapes, as well as acrylic adhesive transfer and ATG tapes. Silicone adhesive tapes provide durable, high performance bonds for elevated temperature applications such as powder coating and splicing. Powder coating tapes are available with either a durable PET film backing or high temperature Kapton® or polyimide film backings. Polyimide tapes are widely used for masking during high temperature wave soldering of printed circuit boards and electronic component manufacturing.
Unique Adhesive Properties
Acrylic adhesive tapes provide a controlled range of high tack, low tack, removable or permanent properties for splicing, temporary masking, bonding and assembly applications. Splicing tapes are widely used in the printing, processing, converting and coating industries, where quick stick and bond durability are critical to customers’ applications. Surface protection tapes provide temporary masking to prevent scratching and damage to critical components, such as mobile communication devices, computers, automobiles, glass and polished metals. Bonding tapes utilize high strength acrylic adhesives for permanent assemblies. Acrylic pressure sensitive adhesives are available in formats of adhesive transfer tapes and double coated tapes for close fitting bond lines or as double coated foam tapes and mounting tapes for gap filling applications.
