Bonds + Seals in One Easy Step • Reduces Assembly Time + Cost

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.
  • Permits thinner/lighter/less expensive material options – tapes allow trailer “lightweighting”…permits selection of materials that cannot be welded or easily fastened with mechanical fasteners.
  • Tapes readily bond to dissimilar materials – pressure-sensitive tapes bond to a wide variety of materials including metals, plastics, and glass.

Improves Appearance and Aesthetics

  • 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.

Reduces Production Costs

  • Bonded surfaces stay smooth and clean – no need for weld grinding or additional clean up steps.
  • Little or no capital investment– tapes are typically applied via hand or with low cost dispensers. Major capital investment is not required.
  • Easy, fast application – operators can be quickly and easily trained to apply most tape products.

Typical Industrial and
OEM Bonding and Assembly
Tape Applications

  • Small Joint Bonding + Assembly – metal and plastic housing assembly, furniture joints, magnet bonding, and lens assembly.
  • 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.
