Protective Tape, also referred to as Surface Protection Films, protect almost any surface against marring, chipping and scratching. Protective products are often used during manufacturing, packing and shipping. Application Tapes, also known as Premasking and Prespacing Tapes are used in graphic arts, printing and sign making applications. Protective films and tapes can be permanent or temporary, and some are printable. Rubber adhesives are the hardest to identify from just looking at the roll. When selecting an adhesive tape for any application, make sure you specify the exact type of rubber adhesive you require or allow our team of expert product consultants to recommend the best product for your application. Synthetic (formulated) Rubber Adhesive is created in a laboratory instead of coming from a tree. Applications like Laminating and bonding applications on foam, plastics, metal, and composites. General purpose splicing. Ideal for ether and Esther foams, LSE plastics, and gasketing materials. Core and roll starter tape. The adhesive can typically be transferred from the protective release liner to the bondable substrate with the use of modest heat (approx. 150Â°F). The selected cure schedule should then be performed. When properly cured, it exhibits good strength properties at low and elevated temperatures. It also exhibits excellent plastic flow which contributes toward obtaining 100% contact with the substrates to be bonded. They are used mainly for closing cartons, boxes, plastic bags, and they protect against damage of goods in transport or during storage.
