Choosing the correct combination of substrate and adhesive is critical to the performance of the final badge, label or overlay we supply. Once we understand your requirements our experienced team will be able to match exactly the right materials for your perfect result. Below is a very general guide to some of the more commonly used applications:
Smooth flat surfaces: i.e. ABS, Aluminium, glass (interior applications) – general purpose (GP) adhesive should be suitable.
Smooth flat surfaces: i.e. ABS, Aluminium, glass (interior/exterior applications) – 3M 467 (or equivalent).
Textured flat surfaces: i.e. ABS, Aluminium, glass (interior/exterior applications) – 3M 468 (or equivalent).
Powder coated paints and Polypropylene mouldings: (interior or exterior) – Low Surface Energy (LSE) tapes will be necessary. 3M and Duplomont both provide an excellent range.
Automotive applications: (interior/exterior badging) – these often require a higher bond and more commonly thicker foam or neoprene tapes may be necessary. Lohman, Avery, 3M and others all offer good products.
In transit or removable requirements: A wide range of peelable adhesives are available, with varying degrees of tackiness.
