Advantages of Double-Sided Adhesive Tapes

There are many reasons that speak in favour the use of double-sided adhesive tape: Freedom of design, quality of the bond, and the assembly process to name a few.



The Advantages of Double-Sided Tapes for the Building Industry

There are many reasons that speak for the use of double-sided adhesive tape. The freedom of design and the clean working method are just two examples. However, the true advantages of these tapes become particularly clear if you compare double-sided adhesive tapes with other mounting methods.

Therefore, we have developed a transparent rating system that shows you the strengths and weaknesses of different mounting methods at a glance. In our rating, we compare double-sided adhesive tapes with liquid glues and mechanical mounting systems.

In order to achieve maximum transparency, we’ve compared the mounting systems not only in terms of the three main mounting characteristics – quality, assembly and design – but we have also subdivided these features to show exactly what is important when mounting an object.

Adhesion Quality

Not all quality criteria are equally important for all possible applications. Therefore, it is useful to closely consider and evaluate the quality criteria with regard to the desired application.

Our evaluation criteria for adhesion quality are as follows:

  • Compensation of irregular or uneven surfaces
  • Compensation of tension and stress dissipation
  • Shock absorption
  • Reduction of corrosion risk
  • Sealing function
  • Noise-dampening properties

Criteria for Evaluating the Quality

Compensation of irregular or uneven surfaces – gaps between bonded surfaces are eliminated

Compensation of tension and stress dissipation – single bonding point with mechanical fasteners can lead to material breakage

Shock absorption

Reduced risk of corrosion

Sealing function – tape seals and protects against dust and moisture

Noise-dampening properties – sounds caused by vibration are eliminated

Assembly

Processing and assembly with double-sided tape offer significant advantages in terms of a clean and healthy production process.

Our evaluation criteria for assembly are as follows:

  • Duration of the application process
  • Clean and healthy production process

Design Possibilities

Mounting solutions should not collide with the freedom of design. Therefore, design is a criterion of considerable importance in the evaluation of different mounting solutions.

Our evaluation criteria for design are as follows:

  • Improved visual appearance
  • Invisible fastening
