Creating a quieter industrial workplace has become a growing priority as more awareness is raised about the health effects of noise exposure. In fact, OSHA regulates acceptable noise levels in the workplace to protect workers in all types of work environments. Additionally, a more sophisticated generation of consumers expect products such as vehicles and home appliances to offer much quieter operation than ever before.
Traditional needle and thread have been the primary bonding method used in the manufacture of apparel, bags, tents, and other fabric products. Thermoplastics and hot melt adhesive films, like those used in Sewfree® tapes, are changing all of that with a better alternative to sewing that provides a host of advantages to manufacturers.
Pressure sensitive tapes offer a host of benefits in the development of products and assemblies. They cost less than mechanical fasteners, are easier to apply, and typically don't require specialized tools during application. Bonding surfaces can also occur at different times and locations.
Perhaps the most important advantage of using adhesive tapes and materials is the ability to bond dissimilar surfaces together, including:

Laminated polyethylene foam (PE) is very resilient and used extensively in protective packaging. Laminated PE is durable, lightweight, flexible and provides excellent energy absorption and cushioning. Laminating Polyethylene delivers an excellent product for multi-use and returnable applications. Applications include endcaps, corner pads and blocking and bracing. Custom laminated PE foam for product protection will meet the demands of your shipping environment. While laminating PE adhesive foam, it can also be fabricated into various shapes and sizes and often available in multiple colors.
