Advantages of Double-Sided Adhesive Tapes - #BornToBuild

There are many reasons that speak in favour for the use of double-sided adhesive tape: Freedom of design, quality of the bond, and the assembly process to name a few.



The Advantages of Double-Sided Tapes for the Building Industry

There are many reasons that speak for the use of double-sided adhesive tape. The freedom of design and the clean working method are just two examples. There is a clear benefit in using double sided tapes to baond materials together when compared with liquid glues and mechanical mounting systems.

Using double sided tapes when carrying out interior fit outs in commercial or residential projects, can provide you with time savings as well as enable design freedom and increased safety, for example when attaching glass to metal, invisibly mounting mirrors to walls or adding intumescent seals to doors to prevent the spread of fire and smoke throughout the building.

Areas within Building Construction where Double Sided Tapes are used

  • Facades: Building Envelope
  • Windows and Doors
  • Interior Fitout - Commercial and Residential
  • Intumescent Seals
  • Interior Wall Cladding

Why should you use double sided tapes instead of mechanical and liquid fasteners within construction are:

  • Compensation of irregular or uneven surfaces
  • Compensation of tension and stress dissipation
  • Shock absorption
  • Reduction of corrosion risk
  • Sealing function
  • Noise-dampening properties

Comparing double sided tape with alternative fastening solutions

Compensation of irregular or uneven surfaces – gaps between bonded surfaces are eliminated
Compensation of tension and stress dissipation – single bonding point with mechanical fasteners can lead to material breakage
Shock absorption
Reduced risk of corrosion
Sealing function – tape seals and protects against dust and moisture
Noise-dampening properties – sounds caused by vibration are eliminated
