Industrial Tapes News
Used in a wide range of applications, industrial tapes are important for adhesive bonding, packaging and wrapping as well as masking and even for insulation. It is important to note that industrial tapes come in different varieties that are typically subdivided into either non-adhesive or adhesive type tape. This kind of strong and durable tape is commonly used for joining materials while non-adhesive tapes and other types of specialty tapes are used for applications such as electrical insulation or thread sealing.
Even static discharge control can be managed better when using the right type of tape. Other unique applications for modern and advanced tapes include x-ray shielding as well as x-ray type photo marking. Labeling and part identification can also be facilitated through the use of the right kind of tape. Heat sinks, welding operations or directional type markings as well as thermal protection and the need for nonskid functionality all benefit greatly from various types of modern tapes. Few materials can compare to today’s advanced tapes when it comes to friction reduction and other similar applications.
It is important to note that there are different types of tape categories. This includes single-sided adhesive tape, non-adhesive tape and double-sided adhesive tapes as well as transfer tape. Non-adhesive industrial tape does not have adhesive applied but in many cases can be self-adhering. Conversely, single-sided adhesive tape will have just one side of the tape coated with some type of adhesive material. In addition, double-sided adhesive tape is a kind of tape that obviously has both sides of the material coated with a high-quality adhesive product as discussed.
Versatile Industrial Application
For certain applications, there may be two variations of pressure sensitive adhesive used on this style of tape. The liners used in double-sided adhesive tape can vary as well. Finally, transfer tape is a unique type of robust and very versatile industrial application tape. This tape is composed of a thin adhesive film without any type of backing necessary.
