Adchem Unveils 488M RED 8-mil Tape

January 15, 2014 RIVERHEAD, NY - Adchem Corporation, a leading manufacturer of high performance film and foam bonding adhesive tapes, has engineered a high caliper acrylic adhesive double-sided tape. The new 3.5 mils per side acrylic tape is manufactured in the U.S. on a red polypropylene release liner. 488M bonds to a wide array of materials increasingly used in the automotive, furniture manufacturing, electronics, and transportation markets.

Engineered specifically for high immediate bond strength and durable-long lasting bonding applications, 488M is the choice when high tack, higher temperatures and high shear properties are needed.

The converter friendly RED liner allows for precise die-cutting and slitting. The two-sided, high tack, high shear PSA is 8.0 mils total thickness and utilizes an aggressive acrylic adhesive system on a 1 mil PET film carrier.
