Avery Dennison Performance Tapes has introduced its Core Series™ portfolio, which features adhesive technologies ranging from general-purpose rubber to silicone in a variety of tape constructions. Avery Dennison reports that the portfolio, which was designed to address the majority of converters’ bonding needs, offers the following benefits:
- Instant volume-based pricing
- 24-hr standard sample turnaround
- Dedicated application support call line and email address
- One-roll MOQ (based on published length)
- Four-day lead time
- No-charge slitting for 4-in. rolls and above
The Core Series features nine basic adhesive categories—general-purpose rubber, high-shear general-purpose rubber, low-VOC acrylic, general-purpose acrylic, high-performance low-VOC acrylic, high-shear acrylic, high-performance acrylic, LSE-modified acrylic, and silicone. In addition, four differential adhesive tapes are offered for bonding effectively to dissimilar substrates.
To help converters select the right adhesive for a specific application, Avery Dennison has developed a product selection tool. The company reports that the tool helps customers select the proper adhesive in four steps: substrate to be laminated to, surface energy of the substrate, end use requirements, and the required construction.
“Our Core Series Portfolio is comprised of the products that converters use most,” said Deanne Lewis, general industrial product manager for Avery Dennison Performance Tapes North America. “We want to make it easy for converters to quickly identify and obtain the products they need, while providing the great technical and customer service support for which we are known.”
