These high-strength adhesive tapes boast compatibility with a multitude of materials. Moreover, our environmentally conscious products adhere to green building and indoor air quality standards. They are certified by EN 16516 and EN 16402 for volatile organic compounds, thus promoting a healthier and more sustainable living space.

Uses for self-adhesive underlayment

Our self-adhesive underlayment tapes cater to a diverse range of uses and applications, showcasing versatility and adaptability. These tapes effortlessly bond with materials such as carpet tiles, recycled vinyl and composite. Options to adhere seamlessly to PU foam, rubber foam, felt and jute are also available. The compatibility with latex and bitumen makes these tapes an ideal choice for various flooring projects. Our underlayment tapes offer a reliable and high-performance solution for flooring installers seeking to deliver exceptional results.

Underlayment adhesive types

Avery Dennison offers different types of underlayment adhesives. They are each designed to cater to specific needs in the realm of flooring installation. For high-performance needs, the FT 7352 double coated tape features a PET carrier with a unique UV acrylic adhesive. This makes it ideal for bonding polyurethane foam, polyester fibers, felts and fabrics. Its PET film enhances resistance and shear strength, while also potentially offering repositioning capabilities. This depends on the substrate.

The FT Y6663 high-performance scrim tape includes an innovative elastomeric adhesive. It is designed for bonding foamed rubbers and plastics. It adheres exceptionally well to medium and low surface energy materials, such as PP, PE, TPO, ABS, PVC, PS and painted metals.

For more specialized applications, the FT351 double coated tape provides removable capabilities. This differential adhesive tape combines solvent acrylic and solvent rubber. This tape ensures extreme adhesion to low surface energy materials on the laminating side. It also offers a plasticizer-resistant and repositionable adhesive layer on the mounting side.

More flooring adhesive solutions

We deliver a wide selection of flooring adhesive solutions. Our tapes adeptly bond with various carpet fiber backings for carpet flooring. This helps to promote the sustainability and longevity of carpets. We also accommodate flexible LVT planks, cork, rubber mats, linoleum, and vinyl rolls for resilient flooring. These types of adhesive solutions are compatible with multiple subfloor materials and address plasticizer resistance needs. They enable seamless installations across flooring types and help to elevate both appearance and functionality.
