Pressure-sensitive adhesive (PSA) tape is known for its convenience and versatility. Pressure-sensitive tapes do not require a drying or curing phase like other adhesive tapes. Their immediate and reliable bonding properties are suitable for use in automotive repairs, construction, and other industrial applications.

TPC Converting specializes in performance-driven, cost-effective die cut tapes to suit your unique needs.

What are Pressure-Sensitive Adhesive Tapes?

Pressure-sensitive adhesive tapes are sticky on one or both sides with a protective peel that can be removed before use. Pressure-sensitive tapes don’t require solvents, water, or heat to bond materials together. The polymers in adhesive tapes offer impressive viscoelasticity, allowing them to bear more weight and endure greater tensile stress without losing shape.

TPC offers a range of adhesive tape options for industrial use:

  • Rubber-based PSA is a cost-effective adhesive prized for its rapid adhesion abilities.
  • Acrylic PSA is known for its strong adhesive properties and its resilience against heat, humidity, and more.
  • Silicone PSA is uniquely formulated for its innate adhesion to silicone materials.

Types of Pressure-Sensitive Adhesive Tapes

At TPC Converting, we offer a wide range of pressure-sensitive adhesive tape solutions, including:

  • Double-Sided Tapes. Double-sided pressure-sensitive tapes come with adhesive on both sides to bond dissimilar materials for easy handling. Their versatility makes them popular for various applications, though they’re usually not as strong as acrylic foam tapes.
  • Acrylic Foam Tapes. These high-performing foam tapes absorb vibrations at the tape’s core, significantly reducing noise and enhancing bond durability. Especially favored in the automotive sector, these tapes can replace mechanical fasteners or aid in the seamless assembly of components.
  • LSE Tapes. LSE tapes are engineered to bond with materials like plastics and composites that have lower surface energy. These tapes consistently achieve strong adhesion, bypassing the need for priming or mechanical fastening.
  • VHB Tape. Known for its very high bonding capabilities, VHB tape is designed for industrial applications where a lasting bond is critical. It can even be used as a substitute for rivets, screws, and other conventional fasteners. The tape is quick and easy to apply and creates a seal upon contact.
  • Transfer Tape. Also known as pre-mask tape, this tape transfers adhesion to one surface and leaves the other vacant. This tape is ideal for applications requiring clean, exact adhesion.

This diversity in adhesive technology enables us to cater to a broad spectrum of industrial needs and deliver innovative, reliable solutions.

Die Cutting Pressure-Sensitive Adhesive Tapes

TPC Converting utilizes several methods to die cut adhesive tapes into precise forms. Our industrial-grade high bond tapes are designed to resist stress and thermal expansion and can be cut into various shapes and sizes.

TPC Converting also offers open cell, closed cell, and solid rubber foam tape. Materials like EPDM, vinyl, neoprene, and polyurethane foam are used to achieve the desired resistance and tensile strength. We also make waterproof foam tape that can be cut to fit doors, windows, or other areas prone to weather damage.

We’ll work with you to produce components that match your project specifications. Whether you’re creating custom shapes for automotive assembly, electronics, or building construction, we’re ready to deliver adhesive tape solutions that enhance product functionality and efficiency.
