Solar and wind energy products are subject to the harshest external environments throughout their lifetime. This includes extreme temperatures, UV light, wind, rain and debris. We offer a range of performance materials to protect components and resist these environmental extremes, as well as efficiently bond, insulate and vent internal components.
There are many reasons why tapes are replacing traditional fixing methods. Among these is the strong and reliable bond that tapes provide and their additional functionality such as sealing, shielding, insulating and cushioning. In addition to these benefits, joining with tape offers greater design options, product quality and enhanced manufacturing efficiencies.
A customised adhesive component offers a number of benefits to designers and engineers. Product designs can be streamlined with invisible joins and product manufacture is made simple with a convenient and easy to handle component. Adhesive parts can be designed with application aids, or for use in automated assembly processes.
When choosing an adhesive product, there are some key criteria to consider so that the desired performance is achieved. By understanding the end product and conditions it will be subject to, a material can be specified that will last the full life of your product.
High performance aerospace tapes for a variety of applications
