Aerospace

In the aerospace industry, tapes are constantly exposed to changing environments. When choosing tapes for applications in this industry, there are many factors to consider. In this industry, tapes are used for everything from sealing seams, to holding fabric in place, to dispersing heat. Tapes are even being tested in place of rivets in airplanes to reduce overall weight. When designing a tape for your application, we will take into account the substrates the tape will be applied to, the changing environments the tape will be exposed to, the processes that are used during production, etc. to be sure you have a tape that meets your needs.Some common applications for tape in this industry include:

 

  • Mounting signs and mirrors
  • Pre-mounting of small parts
  • Temporary surface protection
  • Insulation protection
  • Fixating carpets
  • Mounting floor profiles
  • Marking floors
  • Preventing slips on walkways
  • Cable management
  • Mounting honeycomb panels
  • Tamperproof security labeling
  • Noise dampening

 

We have relationships with some of the world’s largest tape manufacturers, meaning we have access to the strongest and/or most permanent tapes in the world. We can source tapes for high or low surface energy surfaces and surfaces with many peaks and valleys. We can source tapes that create a strong bond immediately or tapes that strengthen their bond over time. We can source tapes to disperse heat or simply hold carpets in place. And we have the equipment and skills to specially formulate and design adhesives specifically for your project. We can even create differential tapes with each side of the tape designed for a different substrate to ensure the best bonding for your specific application. No matter the tape, we can convert it to the size and shape you need. Below you will find examples of tapes commonly used in this industry.
