Adhesive strength

Adhesion describes the adhesive force of a tape to a substrate and is one of the most important parameters of any application. Adhesive strength increases under the influence of pressure on the joint. It depends largely on the amount of pressure, the time, and the type and surface condition of the material to be bonded.

Shear strength

Shear strength is largely determined by the internal strength of an adhesive and describes the holding force of the adhesive tape in an application. Shear strength is relevant for applications where forces act parallel to the bonded surface.

Temperature resistance

Temperature resistance is a measure of the holding force in an application at elevated temperatures. It indicates the temperature up to which the tape can hold a defined weight. A distinction is made between short-term resistance (sec./min.) and long-term resistance (hrs./years).
