Acrylic foam tapes (AFT) provide permanent, high-strength bonds that adhere to a variety of substrates. They offer numerous advantages over screws and rivets, but that’s not all that sourcing managers need to know. For example, mechanical fasteners can be replaced by die cut AFT products. With aluminum-to-aluminum bonding, AFTs have a shear strength comparable to rivets applied 4” apart.
There are many types of adhesive tapes, but only six manufacturers of foam acrylic tapes worldwide. At JBC Technologies, we die cut foam acrylic tapes from two of the top companies: 3M and AFTC. With our knowledge of die cut AFTs, we can help you with material selection and support your assembly operations.
