Insoles can have a big impact on people’s everyday comfort and rely on high quality transfer tapes. The heel cushion in anatomical insoles has to absorb shock energy and withstand the environmental impacts like humidity that they are exposed to. Therefore, they require a high standard of bonding. Avery Dennison pressure-sensitive adhesives are perfect for adhering difficult shapes and can be used to laminate soft foams, nylon and wool on materials like PVC, PU, ABS or low surface energy materials like PE.
