Independent tests at Loughborough University show NovaBond XS high strength acrylic foam bonding tapes outperform the leading competitor by almost 75% on peel strength and over 50% on shear resistance. We believe no high strength bonding tapes perform better.
NovaBond XS 110W acrylic foam tape – ideal for:
- Signage: Used extensively within the sign industry to bond metals, plastics and ACM. Its visco elastic properties make it ideal for bonding dissimilar materials with different expansion rates.
- Other: Superior holding power in any application where performance critical bonding is essential.
Why NovaBond XS 110W high strength bonding tape?
Incredibly high bond strength delivers durability and longevity
- Extremes of temperature
- High forces applied to the bond
- Most solvents and chemicals
- Differential expansion and contraction
- Interior or exterior performance
- Easy release siliconised filmic liner improves assembly times
- High tack and good initial handling strength for improved production speeds and aesthetics
How to apply NovaBond XS 110W acrylic foam tape
- Abrade (roughen) the surface to provide a ‘key’ to which the tape can bond. By doing so you’ll increase the bond strength by as much as 35%
- Clean with NovaBond Surface Cleaner
- Prime the surface. Independent tests at Loughborough University show that using the correct primer can increase final bond strength by up to 50%.
- You can find the correct NovaBond Surface Primer here.
- With firm pressure, apply NovaBond XS 110W to one of the surfaces to be bonded. Using a NovaBond roller will allows the high strength bonding tape to wet out and reach ultimate bond strength more quickly.
- Remove liner, align the parts to be bonded, and join.
- Apply firm pressure to the bond with the NovaBond roller.
- Ultimate bond strength will be achieved in 72 hours.
