Adhesives

Industrial Adhesives Solutions for Manufacturers

The use of adhesives is growing rapidly in industrial manufacturing markets because the benefits of adhesives are clear: they are lightweight, clean and safe. Individual components can be bonded quickly, accurately and efficiently without the need for heavy and bulky fasteners like rivets or welds that increase labor costs and add stress points to end products.

Tape Innovations maintains an extensive stock of adhesive materials to shorten lead times for our customers. Long known as a leading supplier of masking products for metal finishing and industrial coating applications, we are also experts in pressure-sensitive adhesives (PSAs) and can die-cut, slit or otherwise convert adhesive materials to meet precise requirements for industrial applications.

Popular tapes and adhesives

RUBBER ADHESIVES

Rubber adhesives provide high initial tack and are ideal for bonding plastic substrates. However, they are not suitable for applications involving solvents, moisture or high temperatures as these materials don’t offer the durability and resistance of other types of adhesives.

Silicone Adhesives

Silicone adhesives are among the most widely used for industrial applications because they provide very strong bonding, fast cure times, heat resistance and are extremely flexible. Silicone adhesives are often used for stick-to-skin medical products because they can be removed without causing significant irritation or damaging the patient’s skin.

Acrylic Adhesives

Acrylic adhesives offer good bond strength, can be used for a wide range of substrates and are environmentally resistant for outdoor applications. In the medical industry, acrylic adhesives are well-suited for long-term wearable devices because they provide strong bonding to skin.

Industrial Masking Tapes

Die-cut industrial masking tapes can significantly increase efficiency and speed in industrial coating or painting projects. We can slit or die-cut a variety of tapes to exact dimensions so you can easily complete masking projects with minimal waste.

Double-Sided Tapes

Double-sided tapes are ideal for bonding two components and can be formulated for dissimilar or irregular substrates. Double-sided tapes are used for both permanent and temporary bonding applications.

Blasting & Duct Tapes

These products are a type of industrial masking tape that is used in sandblasting, grit blasting, plasma spraying, plastic media blasting (PMB) and other types of blasting or shot peen applications. These durable materials provide adequate masking and ingress protection against the fine particles that are created in these processes.

FLAME SPRAY Tapes

Flame spray tapes can withstand the extreme temperatures of the coating/flame spraying process while also providing strong adhesion that can be easily removed without creating unwanted residue. These tapes also offer strong abrasion resistance and can be extremely valuable in protecting adjacent surfaces during the flame spray process.

FASTENER Tapes

Fastener tapes are used to replace mechanical fasteners such as screws, rivets or welds. There are several different types of fastener tapes, including hook and loop tape, hook and eye tape, grommet tape, snap tape and others.

Industries Served

Electronics

Adhesives are used extensively in the electronics manufacturing industry because they are lightweight, cost-effective and enable greater design freedom to create smaller, thinner devices. We have converted adhesive materials for use in tablets, laptops, TVs, smartphones and many other electronic devices.

Medical

Adhesives are used in all types of medical applications, including wearable devices, wound care products, diagnostic equipment, disposables and more. Silicone and acrylic adhesives in particular are often used for stick-to-skin applications because of their ability to bond to skin without damaging it.

HVAC

From panel bonding to affixing insulation and other components, HVAC manufacturers use adhesive materials for a number of permanent and temporary bonding applications. We can convert adhesives to your exact dimensions to accelerate HVAC manufacturing and assembly processes.
