Adhesives should be engineered to last longer
Compared to those of generations past, modern vehicles are driven longer and harder. Vehicle platforms have a longer lifetime, individual vehicles have a longer lifetime, and many vehicles are being subjected to increasing wear and tear with the proliferation of ride sharing and a growing used vehicle marketplace.
At the same time, in an effort to manage costs and limit weight, many suppliers and manufacturers are turning to adhesive tapes to bond materials throughout the vehicle. These tapes must be manufactured and proven to perform across the vehicle’s growing lifespan, and through a range of challenging environmental conditions.
Performance tapes for heated seat components
Avery Dennison tape solutions can be die cut and laminated to heating components, then sent to a seat manufacturer for further assembly.
The acrylic adhesives used with these tapes offer a secure bond to materials commonly used in the application, such as polyurethane. They are engineered to be effective throughout the life of the vehicle, while meeting a variety of OEM VOC emissions specifications.
