Challenging Mounting Applications


Nowadays, state-of-the-art appliances are getting smarter. Large LCD and TFT screens found their way onto premium ovens, fridges, dishwashers, and washing machines years ago. But now there are appliances with Wi-Fi connectivity, which allows end users to control them via a smartphone or even integrate them into their smart home system. Those connected appliances offer completely new possibilities – for example, cameras offer a view of what is in the refrigerator at home while the user is standing in the supermarket.

There are many more features when it comes to smart appliances that all require additional built-in technology, which almost certainly creates a technical challenge for the appliance manufacturers. It is not only that the devices are getting touch screens, for example, but it is also a matter of how to integrate them in a perfect, reliable, and efficient way especially because appliances are expected to have longer life cycles than other consumer electronics despite very demanding circumstances (vibration, temperature, cleaning chemicals, etc.). This is where adhesive tape comes into play. There are already many established solutions for demanding applications that are perfect for mounting electrical components on appliances.

Here, we offer numerous solutions for these applications that have already been used successfully in the smartphone and tablet industry. If there is a need for optically clear adhesives, special insulation, or bonding with minimal thicknesses, our electronics assortment offers many state-of-the-art solutions. In addition to this, we also have a wide assortment of double-sided tapes for various mounting requirements. From thin non-woven tapes to high-performance filmic tapes and acrylic core tapes – we will find a solution for your needs.
