SHANGHAI, Jan. 5 /PRNewswire-Asia/ -- High-performance specialty tapes for industrial converting applications featuring the new, patented advanced acrylic adhesive technology - HPA - were launched by the company's Specialty Tape division earlier this year as part of the Specialty Tape Advantage Solutions portfolio. The positive market acceptance of these products has prompted Avery Dennison to offer them now with an upgraded liner, to tailor them to the specific needs of converters serving the demanding OEM automotive, appliances, nameplates, and electronic components markets.

The products - Avery Dennison HPA 1902 W and HPA 1905 W - are now supplied as standard with a moisture-stable, stay-flat white PPP liner.

Strong bonding performance

Avery Dennison HPA 1902 W and 1905 W tapes offer high temperature, chemical, UV, and humidity resistance, and outstanding shear strength and holding power under load. They are engineered to provide a strong bond to a variety of high- and medium-surface-energy substrates such as glass, plastic, PET, polycarbonate, and ABS. The relatively thick acrylic adhesive layer on Avery Dennison HPA 1905 W is an additional benefit for demanding gap-filling applications.

Choice of release liner

In addition to the new PPP-linered qualities, the choice of a PET liner is also offered for applications where the highest-quality die-cutting and lay- flat characteristics may be required, plus the option of double-linered PPP versions, HPA 2902 and 2905.

For challenging applications

Together, the HPA products now represent a 'library' of specialty tapes delivering 21st century adhesive technology and applied performance. Primarily meeting the needs of industrial converters who specialize in the durable goods market, Avery Dennison HPA 1902 W and 1905 W are already finding use in high- end membrane switch, nameplate, component identification, and electrical rating plate fastening applications.
