Two Types of Pressure Sensitive Tapes and Their Smart Adhesives

The pressure sensitive tape market continues to grow, offering adhesive capabilities for a number of applications. Gain insight into two types of pressure sensitive tapes and the smart adhesives for them.

High-Performance Tapes

Designed to meet the most demanding applications, high-performance tapes are increasingly being used in automotive assembly especially. These tapes offer many qualities, including:

  • Adherence to many substrates
  • Extreme temperature resistance
  • Vibration or sound damping capabilities

Smart High-Performance Tape Adhesives

Given that high-performance tapes are exposed to harsh conditions, the adhesives used in their manufacturing must offer high performance as well. Bostik manufactures smart hot melt pressure sensitive adhesives that possess:

  • Superb processability
  • High tack, shear and peel
  • Excellent adhesion to many substrates, such as metals, plastics and corrugate
  • High die-cuttability

As a result, these qualities make them ideal for high-performance tape construction, improving product performance and overall durability.

Double-Sided Tapes

Double-sided tapes are often used in industrial applications, such as:

  • Holding
  • Mounting
  • Splicing

Offering both removability and permanence, thick or thin properties, these tapes can also:

  • Resist extreme temperatures, humidity and aging
  • Prevent oxidation
  • Optimize production processes

Smart Double-Sided Tape Adhesives  

Bostik also manufactures smart adhesives for double-sided tape construction. Not over-engineered, these hot melt pressure sensitive adhesives are a cost-effective option, offering superior bonds and improving overall product aesthetics.
