Across all industries, components made of diverse materials are bonded for purposes such as protection, sealing and enhanced aesthetic appeal. Connections must be longlasting and temperature-resistant, and conjoining diverse components requires precision to ensure parts are accurately and neatly connected for the best final product functionality.
With its foam-based adhesive tapes, Schreiner ProTech’s Folding Frame successfully meets industrial demands for fast-curing and clean adhesive solutions, and eliminates the complex cleaning requirements of liquid adhesives. The Folding Frame System can be precisely positioned to ensure the component’s subsequent functionality. The Folding Frame Solution is suitable for semi-automatic or fully automated processing of roll-fed materials, which saves time and costs, and reduces the risk of defects that may occur in manual processes.
Due to the production of a foldable adhesive version instead of a frame created from a full-surface cutout, multiples can be achieved more efficiently and material consumption significantly reduced for sustainable, eco-conscious manufacturing. Self-adhesive conjoining solutions also support the lightweight design megatrend to replace bolted, riveted and soldered products.
In addition to bonding and sealing, foam-based adhesive tapes make it possible to equalize uneven areas or height differences, as well as reduce noise.
