Double Coated Foam Tapes offer a thicker and more compressible profile than film or paper based double coated tapes. This creates an improved bonding performance and conformability on highly textured surfaces as well as providing suitable void fill and cushioning when mounting non-flat substrates. Double Coated Polyethylene (PE) Foam Tapes are the most economical option offering the best balance of performance and price – moderate internal foam strength & great adhesion. Variations on these tapes include foam thickness (1/32”, 1/16”,1/8”), adhesive type (rubber or acrylic) and color (white or black). Choice of tape is dependent upon the substrates being bonded, application conditions (indoor or outdoor), and color required.
Which Foam Tape is right for your application?
Rubber based adhesive systems provide immediate quick stick so they tend to bond faster to a wide range of surfaces.
Acrylic based adhesive systems will increase bond strength over time and are the best choice for applications where UV conditions and elevated temperatures are involved (outdoor exposure)
