MACtac® Provides the Appliance Market with a Complete Line of Pressure Sensitive Adhesive Products



Stow, Ohio - Fall 2002 - Gaskets and seals, insulation bonding, shelf supports, sound dampening, nameplate mounting - whether the need is for these traditional applications or for specific challenges such as high-temperature and low surface energy bonding, the appliance industry relies on pressure sensitive adhesives (PSAs).

According to Bob Frazier, MACtac® marketing manager, manufacturers depend on PSAs to help balance aesthetics and performance. "By working closely with our customers, we're able to provide products that improve quality and aesthetics."

MACtac offers the appliance industry a complete line of transfer tapes and rubber- and acrylic-based adhesives in single- and double-coated tape constructions designed to meet any application need. This line includes:

MACbond® - This high-tack, double-coated PSA is ideal for general purpose and high-performance applications. Its double-sided construction allows for customization when unique properties are required such as differing thickness and adhesive types (rubber/acrylic).

MACfilm® - MACtac's family of rubber and acrylic free films meet a wide range of specific requirements for the nameplate industry: medium- and high-energy surface bonding (IF-2010); high-temperature, aggressive adhesion (IF-2070); bonding to low surface energy materials (IF-2090); and very high-temperature applications (IF-3070).

MACmount® - When working with irregular, rough or pitted surfaces, manufacturers are faced with finding a solution to "fill in the gaps." MACtac's MACmount® is a double-coated, closed-cell polyethylene foam tape that provides mounting, bonding and laminating for similar and dissimilar materials. In addition to its shear strength, MACmount is both highly conformable and compressible when applied to uneven or contoured surfaces.

Specialty Products - In the appliance industry, manufacturers want to provide customers with a complete product package. Working with its full line of PSAs MACtac provides multiple manufacturing options, including specialty tapes (protective door liners for microwaves, removable film for nameplate protection), membrane switches (a variety of adhesives, graphic overlays and conductive components for complete assembly) and electroluminescent lighting (backlit display panels).
