Picking the right tape for the job?
The NovaBond SignFix range is a high performance family of bonding tapes formulated and developed specifically for the demanding needs of the Sign Industry, although, by their nature, they are versatile enough to perform under most application criteria. Independently tested by Loughborough University, these products exhibit industry leading performance in terms of peel and shear values.
Use the following matrix selection chart to identify which is the correct tape for the substrates you are bonding together.

♣ For bonding bare metals prior to powder coating or for very high temperature applications, abrade surface, clean and use NovaBond SignFix XS110W in conjunction with NovaBond Metal Surface Primer.
♠ For difficult, low surface energy plastics or waxy, powder coatings, prime surface with NovaBond LSE Surface Primer, preferably abrading prior to application, and use NovaBond SignFix LSE 80.
♦ For bonding to glass, clean well with NovaBond Surface Cleaner and prime with NovaBond Glass Primer
Select product thickness depending on substrate surface irregularities and gap-filling required. Optimum thickness is the minimum that will allow 100% surface contact which defines the ultimate bond strength.
