Avery Dennison offers a wide range of acrylic foam, polyethylene, and low surface energy (LSE) foam tape products for adhesive mounting of side molding and sill plates. Our products are approved for many OEM specifications.

Adhesives tapes are expected to perform 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 they’re being subjected to increasing wear and tear with the proliferation of ride sharing and a growing used vehicle marketplace.

It follows that tapes and adhesives need to hold vehicle side moldings and sill plates for longer time spans.

A stable bond across wide-ranging conditions

Avery Dennison tapes provide a secure and stable bond, with resistance to oils, waxes, plasticizers and other chemicals, plus a variety of outdoor environmental challenges. Our offerings cover a wide spectrum of performance and cost requirements.

Our acrylic foam and polyethylene products offer excellent performance against chemicals and aging. Their high cohesion ensures long-duration stability for vehicles with increasingly longer life spans. We also offer foam tape products engineered to meet the bonding challenges of newer, LSE paints and plastic substrates.
