Foam Tapes – Adhesive Specialities

Foam Tapes :

Foam tapes are used for sound dampening, insulating, gasketing, cushioning/padding, and sealing and are designed to enhance the appearance and improve the overall performance of your product design. Each foam tape has unique features and ideal purposes. Some of these tapes are available in a variety of thicknesses, adhesives, carriers and sizes. The normal temperature range that foam tape can withstand is -40°F to 160°F. Foam tape resists moisture, ultraviolet rays from the sun, and solvents, providing high bonding strength to compensate for different thermal expansions.

It’s important to pay close attention to the specific properties of each foam tape to decide which is best for your application. Variations in foam tape densities, thicknesses, adhesive systems and cell structure allow for a great variety of end uses. The success of your end product depends on securing the foam tape that best fits your needs.

Properties of Foam Tapes :

Various types of foam tapes are ideal for use in appliances, automotive applications, electrical/electronics, shower and bath, truck/trailer/RV, point-of-purchase signage, window fabrication, and plastic molder/extruder applications. It is often used in place of mechanical fasteners (rivets, bolts, screws, and welding materials) because of its ability to withstand a high level of vibration, its high strength and its durable seals against cold, dust, gas, liquid, sounds, etc.
