- Synthetic Rubber: Versatile, good adhesion to many surfaces, higher stability and temperature range.
- Modified Synthetic Rubber: Versatile, good adhesion to many surfaces, higher stability and temperature range, clean removal.
- Hot Melt Adhesive: Utility, good adhesion to many surfaces, general stability and temperature range.
1)None / Non-adhesive
Non-adhesive tapes, films or laminates do not have an applied adhesive, but may be self-adhering. PTFE thread-sealing tape is a type of non-adhesive tape.
2) Acrylic adhesive
Acrylic adhesives provide excellent environmental resistance and faster setting times than other resin systems.
3)Pressure Sensitive (PSA)
Pressure sensitive adhesives (PSAs) or contact adhesives are aggressively and permanently tacky at room temperature in dry (solvent free) form. They adhere firmly to a variety of dissimilar surfaces upon contact, requiring only the application of finger or hand pressure. PSAs do not require water, solvent, or heat activation in order to exert a strong adhesive force on materials such as paper, plastic, glass, wood, cement, and metal. PSAs have a sufficiently cohesive holding and elastic nature so that despite their aggressive tackiness, they can be manipulated by hand and removed from smooth surfaces without leaving a residue. In terms of general trade usage, leading tape manufacturers do not sanction the extension of the term “pressure sensitive” to include tapes and adhesives just because they are sticky (e.g., fly-paper) or just because they adhere or cohere.
