STRUCTURAL ADHESIVE TAPES
Arlon Innovations compounds a proprietary line of thermosetting adhesives that provide extremely high bond strength for a variety of applications. These adhesives, also called heat activated or B-stage adhesives, are cured using heat and/or pressure and can be bonded to a wide variety of substrates from low to high surface energy. These unique adhesives are designed for extreme high temperature applications and are available with flame retardant capabilities. All Alamotape products are Restriction of Hazardous Substances (RoHS) and Registration, Evaluation, Authorization, and Restriction of Chemicals (REACH) compliant. Alamotape offers two types of Structural Adhesive Tapes:
Tack-free Thermosetting Adhesive Tapes
Tack-Free Thermosetting Adhesive Tapes are cured with high heat and pressure, resulting in extensive cross-linking between polymer chains to produce an infusible and insoluble polymer network. The curing process creates a chemical bond that, unlike a thermoplastic, prevents the material from reflowing. These adhesives are tack-free at room temperature; no release liner is needed.
EPOXY FLAME RETARDANT
ACRYLIC FLAME RETARDANT
Tacky Thermosetting Adhesive Tapes
Tacky Thermosetting Adhesive Tapes are tacky at room temperature, providing initial bond similar to a pressure sensitive adhesive tape. Like the tack-free products mentioned above, applying heat and pressure results in full cure and high bond strength. These products are tacky at room temperature and require a release liner.
