Adhesives

PLITEK® offers a variety of pressure sensitive adhesive tapes that can be laminated and die cut in our facility. Our converting expertise combined with strong relationships with leading material suppliers make us an ideal manufacturing partner. Our manufacturing capabilities also allow us to coat hotmelt and water-based adhesives customized to your requirements.

Tapes and adhesives act as a bond that keep other components together or adhere them to a substrate. Our team leads each opportunity with a consultative approach, understanding the application, material substrates to be bonded, temperature requirements, chemical resistance, initial bonding, peel strength, and shear strength before suggesting an appropriate adhesive.

Our vertically integrated capabilities allow for combining of adhesive tapes with other thin flexible materials to meet the specific form and function of your application.

Single Coated TapesDouble Coated TapesTransfer Tapes

Single coated tapes are tapes with adhesive applied on one side of the carrier. Single coated tapes are usually 1-10 mil thick tapes with 2-5 mils thick adhesive. The adhesive can be acrylic, rubber, water based, or silicone. The backing composition can be paper, film, foil, non woven or woven cloth.

Adhesives - Single Coated Tapes

Double coated (supported) tapes are tapes with adhesive coated on both sides of the carrier. Double coated tapes are designed to stick two surfaces together, often in a way which is not visible in the end product, due to it being in between the objects rather than overlaying them. Double coated tapes also allow for different adhesive thicknesses and different adhesive types on opposing carrier sides.

Transfer tapes are tapes with single coating of adhesive without a carrier. Transfer tape are made of removable adhesive on one side. They are used for a variety of bonding and laminating applications ranging from gaskets, graphics, and other lightweight materials to high bonding applications.
