Adchem Releases Bonding Studies

Adchem Corp. recently announced it has released two new bonding studies covering nine adhesive tape systems for several compounds of rubber materials manufactured by BRP. In addition, a second study examines 20 adhesive tapes bonded to Armacell low-sulfur, pure EPDM, closed-cell foam and high-density neoprene-based technical foam. The study of BRP products included Buna “N,” Neoprene, VITON®rubber sheet, and EPDM nylon-inserted Neoprene products at varying durometer levels. BRP is a manufacturer of sheet and extruded rubber products for military, automotive, transportation, aerospace, and industrial applications.

The Armacell study reports on adhesive tapes bonded to Armacell (Monarch®) #8082, a low-sulfur, pure EPDM, closed-cell foam used in highly sensitive automotive and electronics applications, and Armacell (Monarch) #2003, a high-density neoprene-based technical foam. The material was developed for applications requiring not only the fine-cell surface typical for block foams, but also high tensile and tear strength and low compression set. The closed-cell Monarch foams are used for gaskets in the automotive industry and other sectors, and for expansion joints in the construction industry.
