Products for Automotive Exterior

Component Name
Vhpb & VHB Tape High performance foamed acrylic tapes are the focus of our tape developments. The solid core provides extremely high cohesive strength whilst maintaining sufficient movement to tolerate different rates of expansion and contraction. The adhesive system provides the highest level of PSA bond. New products include adhesion to LSE substrates, application at 0˚C, thermally conductive as well as extensive Automotive and Aerospace approvals.
Double Sided Foam Tape Extensive range of double sided foam tapes providing a product for every application. Utilising PE, PVC and PU foams in varying densities, these products are used across multiple industries from Automotive and Aerospace to Exhibitions and Sign-making.
Double Sided Film Tape This extensive range of double sided film tapes gives an unparalleled breadth of products. Every type of PSA adhesive in various combinations can be found here on a variety of film carriers. Adhesives include synthetic and natural rubber, emulsion acrylic, pure acrylic, modified acrylic and silicone. Carriers include PVC, Polyester, Polyolefin and PP. This variety ensures we have a product for every bonding application suitable for tapes.
Specialist Foams Foams are used for multiple applications from cushioning, sealing, insulating, dampening and even conducting. Our range of products includes open cell, semi-open cell and closed cell structures manufactured from Polyurethane, PVC, Polyethylene, Neoprene, EPDM, PUPE, Poron, silicone and more. Each product has its own technical merit and will be carefully selected by our Application Technicians.
