Double sided tapes are used for mounting, bonding, and sealing in many manufacturing industries. This includes the automotive industry, where the use of heavy duty double sided tape for trim, treadplate, badge and emblem mounting is the preferred method of fixture. Double sided splicing tapes are also widely used in paper, newsprint and corrugated board production industries.
Compared to using screws and rivets, there are no weak spots when using double sided tape, as stresses are evenly distributed across the bonded area. Futhermore, there are no health and safety considerations as with welding. Double sided tapes are safe and simple to use, and can also be presented in specific die-cut shapes to aid more precise application.
