Technical Application Solution: General Industrial - Rubber Extrusions

Rubber extrusions are used for sealing and gasketing a broad range of items, including appliances, industrial enclosures and recreational vehicles. To secure these materials to substrates, OEMs are often moving from mechanically fastened designs to tape secured solutions. As a result, they reduce tooling costs and design complexity, plus obtain slimmer profiles. In this instance, Avery Dennison heat-activated AFB tape was used instead of traditional pressure-sensitive adhesive (PSA) tape its strong bond with gap filling ability.

Video: ShieldSense RFID Blocking Material

For many retailers, an obstacle in maximizing the effectiveness of their RFID-enabled inventory systems is the ability to isolate waves within specific sales environments. If the waves cannot be blocked, and kept segregated, the technology’s precision and effectiveness will be limited. To solve this issue, Avery Dennison offers ShieldSense™ RFID Blocking Material – a lightweight, easy-to-apply, aluminum foil tape construction that when applied to surfaces like walls and doors, creates a barrier isolating RFID waves to particular in-store locations.

Technical Application Solution: White Goods

More and more, the white goods industry has leaned towards the use of lighter and more efficient materials to manufacture products. One area where this is evident is the use of aluminum foils as heat shields, protecting components from high internal temperatures. For example, in refrigerators aluminum foil is commonly found in control boxes, around defrost heaters, light bulbs and LEDs, and electrical harness connections. If we take a deeper look at the components provided by tier one suppliers, aluminum foil is used in applications that protect air ducts components made of polystyrene; plus you will also find aluminum foil die cuts that serve as patches for the back of the refrigerator (these are commonly applied on the pre-foaming process after having routed all the harnesses, especially in the compressor and condenser areas).

Technical Application Solution: Automotive - Heat Shield

Heat shields are required in many applications to protect components from heat sources. Self-adhesive heat shields are laminated with pressure-sensitive adhesive (PSA). They are used in favor of mechanically fastened heat shields to accommodate slimmer design spaces, reduce rattle and to avoid extra tooling. The PSA must be able to keep the heat shield adhered to a variety of difficult to bond to substrates, while still being able to resist demanding and harsh environments. Specific applications include automotive and other motorized vehicles. The heat shields are typically used in gas tank, cabin exterior and wheel well areas.
