Mactac Technical Products has developed IB-2120, an acrylic and rubber tape for high-performance applications. The double-sided tape was constructed to help a customer bond nameplates to low surface energy plastics and powder-coated paint finishes, the company said. Traditionally, solvent-based liquid adhesives are used in that type of application, but may create environmental concerns. With the IB-2120, the acrylic side is applied to the printed nameplate and the rubber side—which features an aggressive adhesive—is used to bond to the low energy substrate, Mactac said.
