It is a fascinating consideration that a simple peel and press double sided tape fastening system can transform so many areas of product design and manufacturing efficiencies. However, many traditional methods, such as screws, bolts, clips or rivets are being replaced with this new system.
Kevin Porter UK General Manager at Tecman explains, "High performance double sided tape is rapidly becoming the preferred option over traditional fixing or bonding methods and has transformed many areas of product design. Double sided tape is lightweight, clean, and quick to apply and offers unparalleled bond strengths. Having worked alongside Design Engineers across a wide range of industries, we have developed bespoke adhesive tape components for many products."
Kevin continues, "We have the facilities to convert high performance double sided tape into a wide range of formats creating more aesthetically superior products increasing quality, strength and durability. With the introduction of these components into manufacturing processes, our clients maximise the efficiency of their production lines, cutting costs and resource."
High performance double sided tapes provides a quick result by removing the need of labour intensive operations such as hole spotting, drilling, tapping, welding and surface refinishing. Also, with no holes, whether drilled or punched, there are fewer structural weak points or areas where rust or corrosion can set in.
High performance double sided tape creates a consistent adhesive layer that spreads stress evenly, providing reliable holding power. This method can withstand movement and vibration as well as compensate for thermal expansion and contraction, an area where traditional methods lack the flexibility. This is especially important when joining dissimilar materials with different inherent properties.
Established for over 20 years, Tecman has extensive in-house conversion facilities with the capability to convert nearly all their high performance double side tape products into a range of application formats. Tecman is part of an international group providing global bonding solutions and have built a reputation for product excellence and outstanding technical support.
