With our Bond & Detach® solutions, we revolutionized reworkability by developing tapes that permanently mount components but leave the option open to remove them for repair or recycling without leaving residue.

Tape solutions for the wearable devices
The term wearables – or wearable computing – refers to various portable computer systems that are attached to your body while you use them. These include not only familiar wearables – such as fitness trackers, activity trackers, and smart watches – but also less well-known devices, such as smart glasses, smart headgear, smart jewelry, or even smart clothing, which will play a major role in the future.
The key challenge of these electronic wearables is their battery life. This is particularly true for wearables with only a limited space for batteries. Furthermore, flexible or conformed curved displays are necessary, since these devices should also be comfortable. Flexible displays can also easily double the amount of information that can be shown on the user’s wrist, for example. Moreover, the miniature design of wearables is very challenging for engineers.
Our tapes offer the perfect solutions to confront these different challenges. Thus, our tapes are not only characterized by a variety of thicknesses and application areas, but also offer excellent solutions for bonding flexible displays, while also featuring various functional properties. Thanks to our broad range of specialized and standard adhesive solutions, we are able to offer individual options for a variety of different wearables. Our adhesive solutions also include chemical-resistant tapes, as one necessity of wearables is resistance to typical skin-related chemicals, such as perfume, sweat, or sunscreen.
