DAAT® Structural Adhesive Film

DAAT® technology incorporates the benefits of conventional adhesive tape with the performance of structural epoxy adhesive, creating a superior dual-action structural bonding tape that outperforms many liquid epoxy adhesives in the same classification.

DAAT® Structural Adhesive Film

 

Rapid development of adhesive tape technology is challenging the use of traditional joining methods. Our dedication to research and development has enabled us to push boundaries and break new ground.  A key part our recent development is the introduction of DAAT® technology, a dual action adhesive tape that outperforms many structural liquid adhesives.  

 

DAAT® Structural Adhesive FilmDAAT® Technology – Redefining Structural Bonding

 

By combining the benefits of traditional adhesive tape with the performance of structural epoxy adhesive, DAAT® technology is redefining manufacturing processes.

High green strength enables instant adhesion between differential materials and results in simplified and accelerated automotive manufacturing processes. The bonding area of the adhesive tape is precisely defined giving engineers the ability to specify exactly where they need adhesion.  In addition the tape maintains a constant uniform adhesive thickness.

DAAT® technology can be modified to include various characteristics to meet specific design requirements, such as bonding to oiled steel and a version with no tack on one side. This level of versatility within the technology helps provide engineers with greater design flexibility.
