Splicing Tape for Low-Energy Surface Substrates
GLEN ROCK, Pa. (October 3, 2001) - Adhesives Research, Inc., a leading developer and manufacturer of high-performance, specialty pressure-sensitive adhesive products, introduces ARclad® 9030, an orange double-faced tape designed for splicing low-energy surface substrates.
ARclad® 9030 features superior adhesion and quick tack properties for splicing low-energy surface substrates such as polyethylenes, polypropylenes, high-slip films and other difficult-to-adhere-to surface substrates. It allows for faster line speeds when performing flying splices and it may be used for zero speed; overlap splicing, core starting and roll finishing splicing applications.
From a safety standpoint, ARclad(® 9030 is "tearable," so no knife is needed, making application of ARclad® 9030 safe and convenient for operators. The highly visible orange color allows operators to clearly identify splices during applications.
Adhesives Research's complete line of ARclad® high-performance splicing tapes has been developed for splicing applications in the flexible packaging, converting, laminating, extrusion and metallizing industries. ARclad® splicing tapes offer quick
tack and consistent caliper and require no mess or clean-up, no solvents or costly equipment for application. Technical expertise and years of experience also enable Adhesives Research to develop custom pressure-sensitive splicing solutions for
customers in need of a specialized product to meet critical splicing needs.
The Splicing Business Unit offers two unique customer service programs to its splicing customers: ARclad® Direct and ServicePLUS. ARclad® Direct provides significant benefits to customers when working directly with Adhesives Research.
The innovative ServicePLUS program offers customers technical assistance within 24 hours as well as splicing tape audits, trial analysis reports, splicing seminars, free samples, technical training and testing services, dispenser maintenance and order acknowledgments. Both programs provide many benefits that allow customers to increase productivity and improve efficiencies.
