Uniform stress distribution

Spot welds, rivets, screws, nails  and other mechanical fasteners create single-joint stress points. Because the entire force is concentrated on one joint, this attachment can often fail and/or cause material breakage. Bonding tapes distribute stress evenly over the entire bonded area. Double-sided tapes are perfect for tension compensation.


By using tape, you can eliminate stress concentration that decreases substrate integrity. At the same time, get rid of the need for holes that invite rust and corrosion. Your products are stronger and longer-lasting.
