Qualities Automotive Foam Adhesive Tapes Need to Possess

Grand View Research cites that the global automotive adhesive tapes market is set to be worth $11.54 billion by 2024. This is due in large part to tape’s use in applications for:

  • Noise and vibration dampening
  • Masking
  • Electrical insulation
  • Labeling
  • Surface protection

Common automotive foam adhesive tapes in particular are known for high bond strength to a variety of materials. As a result, they are seeing increased demand due to:

  • Durability
  • Versatility
  • Sufficient bonding and fixing properties

Let’s take a look at qualities foam automotive adhesive tapes must possess:

  • These automotive tapes must provide the capability of conforming to irregularities, bonding rigid surfaces even when there might be a slight mismatch.
  • They need to have high peel adhesion, i.e., a 180° peel force to stainless steel of greater than 6 or 7 psi with a 15-minute dwell time when tested.
  • Additionally, foam adhesive tapes for automotive applications must perform well for a relatively large variety of surface materials.
  • These adhesives must also be water and solvent resistant.
