Adhesive Tapes have an endless array of uses and applications, such as bonding, mounting, insulating, surface protection, electrical, sound damping, to name a few. Often, tapes are referred to by their application, such as masking tape or electrical tape.
Tapes by Application
Below is a list of tape applications with a short description and common materials used for the application.
Attachment Tapes, also known as Mounting Tape or Bonding Tape, are used for attaching, mounting, bonding, or joining two or more materials together, from .001″ to 1″ thickness.
- Adhesive Transfer Tapes
- Double Sided Tapes
Damping Tapes, also known as Sound Dampening Tape or Vibration Dampening Tape, are used to reduce noise, squeaks, rattles, and vibration. Tapes, foils, and foams are used for sound and vibration dampening in the automotive, marine, aerospace, electronics, and construction industries.
- Cloth Tapes and Felt
- Single & Double Coated Foams
- Single and Double Coated Foils
- UHMW Film
Electrical Tapes, also known as Electrical Insulation Tape, EMI/RFI Shielding Tape, Electrically Conductive Tape or Non-Conductive Tape, insulate, shield, or conduct electrical current in X, Y, or Z directions. EMI/RFI Shielding Tapes offer reliable point-to-point contact grounding and static charge release. Anti-Static Tapes decrease the level of static electrically generated.
Industrial Tapes are used in all types of industries for various applications, such as bonding, masking, surface protection, sealing, to name a few. Whether used in the production and assembly of finished goods or used for maintenance, safety, or operational needs, MBK has a wide range of products to fit both your application and financial requirements.
- Cloth Tapes
- Double Coated Tapes
- Foams and VHB Tapes
- Paper Tapes
Laminating Material can be the same or different, depending on the processes and the object to be laminated. In some cases, laminating refers to applying adhesive to a material and other times refers to applying film, plastic, or paper to a subject. Factors such as durability, temperature, and electrical properties are important considerations for usage.
Medical Tapes are used for surgical applications, medical device assemblies, wound care, Ostomy, electro medical, and diagnostics.
- Hydrogel Tapes
- Single Coated and Double Coated Film Tapes
- Single Coated Foam Tapes
- Single Coated Non-Woven Tapes
- Single Coated Hydrocolloid Film Tapes
- Transfer Tapes
Protective Tapes, also referred to as Surface Protection Film, protect almost any surface against marring, chipping, and scratching. Protective films and tapes can be permanent or temporary. Some are printable.
- Clean Removal Adhesives
- Clear and Colored Films
- Cling Vinyl
- Single Coated Paper Tapes
Sealing Tapes, also known as Insulating Tape, Gasket Tape or Weather Tape, are used to seal against fluids, gasses, dust, moisture, air, and noise. They also help to cushion and protect from outside elements.
- EPDM Foams
- Neoprene Foams
- Polyethylene Foams
- PVC Films and Foams
- Polyurethane Foams
- Silicone Foams
Thermal Tapes, also known as Thermal Management Tapes or Thermally Conductive Adhesive Tapes, perform in demanding temperatures. Thermal Tapes are used to insulate in cold and hot environments, Thermal Management Tapes are used to promote heat dissipation and protect parts from overheating, and Thermally Conductive Adhesives provide high thermal bulk and/or interface conductivity, particularly needed in the electronics, LED and solar industries.
- Adhesive Transfers
- Ceramic Filled Tapes and Pads
- Silicone and Acrylic Polymers
