Foamed Acrylic Adhesive Tapes
Foamed acrylic tape is a 'high performance' type of adhesive tape which is widely used in industry for bonding substrates together or as a 'third hand jig' to hold substrates in place whilst an adhesive cures and bonds them together. Foamed acrylic tape is pure adhesive that has been foamed and formed into a tape and partially cured by UV light to enable it to be wound onto a roll.
The adhesive tape, when applied to a substrate is activated by applying direct pressure with a roller along its length. The tape will 'wet out' or 'flow very slowly' over a 72 hour period creeping into every nook and cranny on the substrate surface to give 100% coverage. Typically 50% of the bond strength is achieved in 20 minutes, 90% is achieved in 24 hours and 100% in 72 hours.
Foamed acrylic tape is ideal for bonding substrates with dissimilar thermal expansion values, applications that are subject to shock, impact or vibration or where a water tight or airtight seal is required.
In addition to rolls of tape, Eurobond Adhesives Ltd offer bespoke 'Die Cut' tapes where a specific pattern is cut into the tape to enable the user to fit the tape 'exactly' to a shaped product surface.
