PRES-ON: Foam Tape

November 20, 2008

Pres-On® has announced the introduction of its PHB series of high-bond acrylic foam tapes that deliver the necessary strength to replace spot welds, screws, mechanical fasteners and rivets in a variety of products, resulting in sleeker designs and lower assembly costs.

Available in black, white and clear, the double-coated tapes provide a superior bond between many different substrates, especially low-surface-energy powder-coated paints, metals, and plastics. The 100%-closed cell acrylic foam creates a durable shield as it bonds and compensates for differential thermal expansion or contractions, making for a final product that is lighter, quieter, and more efficient.

PHB tapes eliminate nuisance problems associated with welding and rivets during the attachment of auto trim, skin to frame assembly, or the manufacturing of furniture, appliances or hundreds of other commercial and industrial products. These tapes can also be used in the fabrication of doors and windows.
