Thank-Metal Co., Ltd., a
Japanese manufacturer of precision machines and metal processing components for
various types of batteries, has specified APTIVTMfilm in
its new line of Tough TapeTMhigh-performance pressure-sensitive
tape targeted for protective tabs used in cylinder lithium batteries.
The Tough Tape
high-performance pressure-sensitive tape features properties that surpass polyimide,
PEI and PTFE
tapes. When compared to polyimide- and PEI-backed tapes, Tough Tape offers
improved chemical resistance, better tear strength, lower moisture absorption, and
improved barrier properties. When compared to PTFE-backed tapes, pressure-sensitive
tapes made from APTIV film offer superior mechanical properties, improved
abrasion resistance, higher dielectric strength, lower smoke and toxicity
release, lower permeability, and lower specific gravity.
“The battery industry
is seeking tape products with excellent strength, heat resistance and chemical
resistance that could be used in insulation applications,” said Mr. Kobayashi,
manager of New Business Development at Thank-Metal. “With the superior
mechanical properties of Tough Tape, we are pleased to support this new
application area and we are well prepared to meet increasing customer demand
now and in the future.”
Tough Tape, made with APTIV
film, can be adhered to many different hard mating surfaces such as steel,
ceramic or glass. The tapes are available in 25µm backing thickness and in a
range of widths depending on customers’ needs.
