How Surface Differences Can Affect Tape Adhesion

February 21, 2019

All adhesive tapes function better when they cover more surface area. Pressed against a broken up surface, discontinuities cause an area deficit, which prevents the tape from making contact.

Industrial adhesives are always applied according to a series of stringently controlled utilization steps. After all, there are heavy loads and fast-moving parts in play, and they’ll be throwing out copious quantities of energy after they’re chemically joined. To maximize such liquid-bonded joints, a baseline must be established, one that assures an absolutely clean start. […]

January 15, 2019

As the label implies, Eternabond Webseal utilizes a mesh-like composition. More accurately, the woven backing is enveloped in a microfine bonding agent. It’s this specially formulated microsealant, plus the underlying web-like backing that gives the material its bonding edge. Imagine an awkwardly placed seam or a protruding screw. How would a standard piece of stronger-than-average […]

What Type of Tapes Should You Consider for Packing Purposes?

November 7, 2018

Packing tapes are generally applied with the same smooth motion. The strip rolls out of a gun-shaped dispenser, a guiding hand follows behind, and the two combined actions result in ample contact pressure. Pressure-sensitive by design, these adhesive tapes suit most packaging applications remarkably well. Adding performance-oriented strength to all such product lines, let’s see […]
