The use of self-adhesive materials speeds up the joining process enormously. Pre- and post-processing are reduced or no longer necessary. In contrast to liquid adhesives, neither curing nor subsequent cleaning is necessary.
So-called high-performance adhesive tapes still hold up at -40 or +150°C or even under water, are difficult to ignite, 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 aluminium frame were shaken in an earthquake simulation - the tape held up
Electronic components get smaller – but the power increases. This generates more heat and can lead to malfunctions. With the help of the right adhesive tape, heat can be dissipated or absorbed and interference avoided. It is also possible to insulate generators, coils, transformers and cables.
Many adhesive tapes have an excellent sealing function against moisture and dirt and are resistant to thermal and chemical influences. Due to the gapless bond, the adhesive tape also has an insulating effect. Vibrations are reduced and rattling or creaking noises are avoided.
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.
Since no holes are required for fastening components, the classic attack surfaces for corrosion are reduced in the construction. The result is long-lasting and clean connections.
Unlike point loading with mechanical fasteners, bonding distributes any stresses over the entire surface of the joint. The materials can thus be designed thinner and thus enable savings.
Through material combinations, adhesive tape enables e.g. the connection of components with different surface tensions. This means, for example, that different thermal expansion behaviour can also be compensated for without any problems.
A decisive factor for the entire construction: when using adhesive joints, you reduce the weight and thus save costs! Adhesive bonding is THE alternative for lightweight constructions.
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.
