Bonding Study: Rogers Griswold™ Rubber Products

Determining the correct adhesive when bonding to rubber and other materials may be challenging, especially when seeking to provide your customer an accurate quote quickly and accurately. To help you with the adhesive selection, and the technical requirements your customer may require, Avery Dennison Performance Tapes has developed a series of adhesive bonding studies. These studies highlight the performance of our Core Series™ Portfolio products when combined with rubber and other materials from industry leading manufacturers.

Bonding to Rogers Griswold Cellular Rubber

Rogers Griswold rubber products are the leading standard in engineered cellular rubber. The wide range of Griswold cellular rubber products are available in natural rubber, neoprene, EPDM, Nitrile, SBR, sponge/cork, electrostatic dissipative and custom-designed compounds. They are offered in multiple thickness and width options, along with the ability to add textile and film substrates, as well as adhesive, for diverse applications.

Rogers Griswold and Avery Dennison Adhesive Sample Preparation

Avery Dennison adhesive products were backed with a 2 mil PET film and trimmed to a one-inch width. Two sample sets were laminated to Rogers Griswold cellular rubber materials.

Rogers Griswold and Avery Dennison Adhesive Sample Testing

Rubber bonding is affected by the rubber's base polymer, thickness, and cell type. Adhesion to rubber is impacted by factors such as: adhesive mass, pressure, compression, lamination speed and temperature. All samples were tested at 180° Peel Adhesion at 12 in/min. It was determined by this study that heat lamination is beneficial (220˚F).
