Selecting the Right Tape

When you are looking for a Pressure-Sensitive Adhesive (PSA), many factors come into play. Specific characteristics of the materials, environmental factors, application conditions, cost concerns, and the required bonding performance all need to be considered.

Video: Avery Dennison Performance Tapes Synthesis Lab

The Avery Dennison Performance Tapes Synthesis Lab is where we develop and design new adhesive polymers. It’s also where we can adjust properties of existing adhesives to meet the unique needs of a specific application. This lab’s work is centered around molecular chemistry and polymer science as it relates to advanced adhesive development. It features equipment for multiple types of tests, giving our researchers a range of capabilities.

Video: Foam and Fiber Bonding Emulsion Products - Butterfly Test

Avery Dennison Foam and Fiber bonding emulsion products are versatile pressure-sensitive tapes ideal for general purpose foam bonding applications in industries such as automotive, appliances, building and construction, transportation, and heavy equipment. These emulsion products offer ease of conversion, excellent price to performance ratio, high adhesion to low surface energy materials and excellent resistance to solvents, chemicals, plasticizers, moisture, temperature and UV light. This butterfly test demonstrates the strong lamination bond of the pressure-sensitive adhesives to foam. When the foam tears it shows that the strength of the adhesive bond is stronger than the internal strength of the foam.

Video: Avery Dennison Performance Tapes Tappi Lab

Scientists and laboratory technicians rely on the Avery Dennison Performance Tapes TAPPI Lab to measure adhesive properties, and test and validate pressure-sensitive constructions with a number of substrates — including plastic, steel and glass. It’s also where we test exposure of our constructions to extreme environmental conditions.
