Applications for Tape for the Signage Industry:

  • Mounting during the production process
  • Mounting during installation
  • Masking during spray painting or powder coating
  • Protection of sensitive surfaces
  • Permanent bonding between stacked or layered materials

 

Bonding Power
tesa® ACXplus is a powerful bonding technology designed for materials with different surface characteristics. Its acrylic adhesive system secures optimal “wetting” and chemically adapts to the bonded surface. Moreover, the tape thickness can be adjusted to compensate for rough and uneven surfaces. The result is permanent contact and complete sealing of the joined surfaces. This leads to a high strength, long-term bond which will last for decades.

 

Stress Dissipation

During the life cycle of a component, static and dynamic stresses act upon the constructive bond. In some circumstances, stresses in the bonded joint are caused by different thermal elongations of the respective substrates. Due to the viscoelastic properties of tesa® ACXplus, the ensuing stresses can be optimally dissipated to ensure a secure bond. Extreme temperature changes are tolerated, even for joining substrates with different elongation factors.

 

Temperature and Weather Resistance tesa® ACXplus provides high resistance to temperatures and different weather conditions. The main reason is the oxidation resistance of the fully saturated carbon chain, which is the foundation of the acrylates used in tesa® ACXplus. Furthermore, the special curing chemistry forms an outstanding temperature-resistant polymer network, resulting in a superior bond that resists temperature, weather, ultraviolet light, and chemical influences.

3M ADHESIVES – PUR ADHESIVES

SCOTCH-WELD HOT MELT BONDING SYSTEM

 

The quick-stick nature of 3M Hot Melt Adhesives helps you speed up operations like packaging and production. And they stick to almost anything—foams, corrugated cardboard, fabrics, plastics, particle board and light-gauge metals. While hot melts are as strong as mechanical fasteners and sealing tapes, they’re virtually invisible –improving overall aesthetic. 3M Scotch-Weld Hot Melt Adhesives and Applicators are advanced hand-held systems to help you improve productivity, lower cost, and minimize waste.

 

Adhesives are 100% solids thermoplastic resins that become fluid when heated and quickly wet the bonding surface. They cool, harden, and reach bond strength in seconds. You can move assemblies immediately to keep production flowing. This helps eliminate clamps, fixturing and drying, and saves time, energy, and space.

 

Each adhesive is designed and precisely manufactured for efficient use in one of the portable 3M Scotch-Weld Hot Melt Applicators. Bond wood, plastic, foam, fabric, cardboard, and more.

DOUBLE COATED FOAM TAPES

VHB PERMANENT ASSEMBLY TAPES

 

Acrylic VHB foam tape is a specialty bonding tape that is a proven high-strength alternative to screws, rivets, welds and other forms of mechanical fasteners. While a screw or a rivet can join two substrates at a single point, specialty bonding tape permanently adheres one substrate to another and spreads the stress load across the entire length of the joint. Once substrates are joined with high-strength bonding tape, a virtually indestructible “weld” is created.

 

Skyscrapers, cell phones, electronic highway signs, refrigerators, marine electronics, architectural windows, recreational vehicles and trailers…all of these rely on specialty bonding tape for one or more steps in the assembly, mounting, fastening and sealing process. The inherent properties of bonding tapes make this wide array of applications possible.

 

Acrylic foam tape is comprised of closed cell foam with pressure sensitive adhesive on two sides. This unique combination offers benefits that screws, rivets, welds and other types of mechanical fasteners just can’t match: instant shock, stress bonding, absorption distribution,expansion and contraction, Waterproofing, conformability, design flexibility, and smooth, invisible appearance
