Low surface energy tapes – NovaBond LSE 80 For the substrates conventional tapes struggle to bond, choose NovaBond LSE 80. NovaBond LSE 80 bonding tape – ideal for: Signage: Immediate bond strength on a wide variety of signmaking plastics (including, polypropylene, polyethylene and other thermoplastics) that traditionally resist adhesives. Manufacturing: Similarly effective on powder coatings. [read more]High Strength Bonding Tapes, High Strength Bonding Tapes Enquire Now
For the substrates conventional tapes struggle to bond, choose NovaBond LSE 80.
Materials such as polypropylene and polyethylene are low surface energy plastics. When you apply adhesives and adhesive tapes to them the surface resists. Instead of letting the adhesive spread and grip (a process known as ‘wetting out’), the substrate acts like a well-waxed car bonnet, encouraging the bonding tape to simply slide away.
That’s why a low surface energy plastic needs acrylic tapes specifically designed for the purpose.
