Every day in private homes, offices and schools, there are situations where an adhesive tape can provide valuable assistance. Only when you don’t have a roll of adhesive tape you appreciate how much you come to rely on it.
The classic transparent tesafilm is there when the first drawings of a child are to be put up on its bedroom door. The practical painters tape makes sure that there are sharp colour edges when painting the walls. The mirror adhesive tape replaces drill and screws, providing a secure bond of the wall mounted mirror in the bathroom. And the repair tape is there as a first aid when a water hose is leaking or a cable coating is torn open. This list could be continued nearly indefinitely, because the areas of application of our adhesive tapes are almost limitless.
By the way, the quality of an adhesive tape not only depends on its adhesive performance. While the adhesive stick may be considered the most important component of an adhesive tape, even the best adhesive is pointless without the right base material or carrier and possibly a bonding agent to keep it all together. Decisive for success is always the appropriate and useful mix of all components.
Here, the adhesive on the one hand has to stick to the surface as long as desired (adhesion). On the other hand, it has to be so consistently solid within itself that it is optimal for the respective application (cohesion). As a great number of adhesives and numerous base materials/carrier may be considered, looking for the perfect combination of an adhesive tape is much like a puzzle. Fortunately, our product developers are experts at solving puzzles!
The materials we use for the carrier include among others
- PP (polypropylene), PET (polyethylene terephthalate) or PVC (polyvinylchloride),
- Foam (PE) or
