10 reasons for using adhesive tape

10 reasons for using adhesive tape

Tape can do more than most people think. The biggest fear: Will it hold? Our very simple answer: Yes, if it is the right tape! We have more than 14 years of experience in the processing of adhesive tape and know exactly what to do. You want to save weight, shorten your process or simply need an invisible but secure connection between two components? Then you should take a closer look at the possible applications of adhesive tape. Whether it is "only" to fasten or also to seal, conduct, protect or shield – we find the right material and bring it into the required form for your application.

1. Reduced costs

The use of self-adhesive materials speeds up the joining process enormously. Pre- and post-processing are less or no longer necessary. In contrast to liquid adhesives, neither curing nor subsequent cleaning is necessary.

2. Secure hold

So-called high-performance adhesive tapes still hold at -40 or +150°C or even under water, are flame-retardant and can even withstand earthquakes. tesa has published a video on this subject in which facade elements in which thermal glass was bonded in an aluminum frame were shaken in an earthquake simulation – the tape held.

3. Heat dissipation, EMC
    and insulation 

High power in ever smaller electronic components generates heat and can lead to malfunctions. With the right tape, heat can be dissipated or absorbed and malfunctions avoided. It is also possible to insulate generators, coils, transformers and cables.

4. Sealing and insulating

Many adhesive tapes have an excellent sealing function against moisture and dirt and are resistant to thermal and chemical influences. Due to the seamless bond, the adhesive tape also has an insulating effect. Vibrations are reduced and rattling or creaking noises are avoided.

5. Even out unevenness

Slight unevenness or rough surfaces are no problem for the right adhesive tape – it fills small gaps, the components are joined flush with each other and there are no restoring forces.

6. Minimized risk of corrosion

Since no holes are required for fixing components, the classic attack surfaces for corrosion are reduced in the design. The result is long-lasting and clean connections.

7. Distribute stresses

In contrast to point loading with mechanical fasteners, adhesive bonding distributes any stresses over the entire surface of the joint. The materials can therefore be thinner and thus enable savings to be made.

8. Bonding materials 

Through material combinations, adhesive tape enables e.g. the connection of components with different surface tensions. Thus, for example, different thermal expansion behaviour can be compensated without problems.

9. Lightweight construction

A decisive factor for the entire construction: When using adhesive bondings, you reduce the weight and thus save costs! Bonding is THE alternative for lightweight constructions.

10. Individual shapes

Unpleasant screws and rivets are a thing of the past – adhesive joints enable invisible connections and thus offer you enormous freedom of design.

What does a converter do?

As a converter – i.e. further processors – we initially receive adhesive tape on oversized rolls. Our job is to turn this into individual self-adhesive parts, so-called moulded parts. These are individually adapted to their respective use, and each decision fulfils a specific function in your application: from the material or combination of materials, to the selection of masking tapes (liners), to recesses, peel-off aids and final delivery on rolls, sheets or as individual parts.
