Typical Truck and Utility Trailer Tape Applications

  • Panel to Frame Bonding – tapes can easily replace traditional riveting, welding, or liquid applied adhesives for metal or composite panels that have no need for any surface refinishing or clean up. The panels are aesthetically smooth and fleet graphics are easy to apply.
  • Sealing Roof Seams – gaskets of almost any shape or size made from a variety of rubbers or foams designed for robust seals and interfaces.
  • Self Adhesive Gasketing – gaskets of almost any shape or size made from a variety of rubbers or foams designed for robust seals and interfaces.
  • Trim + Nameplate Attachment – tapes quickly mount trim parts, nameplates, and other assemblies quickly without the need for fixturing.

Allows Continuous Bond Lines

  • Tapes uniformly distribute stress along the entire joint – nuts, bolts, rivets, and welds concentrate stresses which can degrade the physical properties of materials over time.
  • Tape products offer excellent fatigue resistance – vibration and joint flexing can compromise mechanical fasteners. Tapes are viscoelastic and permit joints to dampen vibration absorb shock and recover time after time.
  • Tapes bond and seal simultaneously – tapes create strong bonds that seal out water, dirt, dust, and other contaminants.

Allows Wider Material Selection Options

  • Tapes prevent galvanic corrosion – tape products act as a barrier to prevent bimetallic corrosion when joining dissimilar metals
  • Tapes eliminate the need for drilled or pre-punched holes and reduces the chance for any rust or corrosion.
  • Tapes readily bond to dissimilar materials – pressure-sensitive tapes.

Improves Appearance

  • Tapes are typically hidden in the bond line and prevent the distortion and splitting common to mechanical fasteners.
  • Tapes eliminate the need for drilled or pre-punched holes and reduces the chance for any rust or corrosion.
  • Easy, fast application – operators can be quickly and easily trained to apply most tape products.
