The role of surface protection tape and its material requirements

- Nov 23, 2018-

Surface protection tape can be used in the automotive industry. Due to the design of the car, certain areas of the car are highly susceptible to mechanical damage and scratches. After the paint damage, the rust problem will be caused by the long-term damage. The surface protection tape can be easily and efficiently protected. The new car is always in excellent condition; the ultra-thin, durable and almost invisible surface protection tape is suitable for the vulnerable parts of the vehicle.


Frequently used sensitive surfaces can be permanently protected with surface protection tapes such as shipping, packaging, food, printing, plastics, aluminum and textile industries. It can reduce noise, has excellent sliding and lubricating properties, etc. In addition, the surface protection tape is an adhesive tape that protects the surface when transporting decorative plates, plastic plates, coated plates, stainless steel plates, aluminum plates, and the like.


After it is required to be used with the article, the pressure-sensitive adhesive does not leave residual glue on the article, does not pollute the surface to be adhered, does not corrode, does not cause chemical changes on the surface to be bonded, and has excellent weather resistance. As the material of the surface protective tape substrate, polyvinyl chloride, polyethylene, polypropylene, polyester, paper, or the like is used. The pressure sensitive adhesives required will vary depending on the purpose of use. It does not require adhesion like a typical adhesive tape, and it requires simple peeling after use.


Therefore, a surface protective adhesive tape is sometimes attached to an object to perform plastic working such as drilling, cutting, bending, and twisting of the object. In this type of processing, the adhesive tape used is selected from a plastic film having a large elongation and a good tear strength as a substrate.
