Advantages of adhesive tapes articulated with authority at FAST Live

For constructing commercial trailers, one increasingly popular solution to bodybuilding productivity challenges is the use of modern high-performance double-sided adhesive tapes. According to FAST Live exhibitor tesa, bonding with tape offers several advantages in comparison to the use of mechanical fasteners and liquid adhesives.

Tapes are quick, quiet and clean to apply, says tesa, with minimal waste, simple surface preparation and requiring no post-assembly clean up. Further, unlike liquid adhesives, tapes can provide almost immediate handling strength, reduced cycle times and simplified manufacturing sequences. tesa also states that unlike mechanical fasteners, tapes don’t require the drilling of hundreds of time and energy consuming holes either.

Tapes can also do something that many alternative methods cannot: bond and seal in a single process. Moreover, tapes are also invisible once applied says tesa, providing aesthetic benefits together with smooth interior and exterior surfaces that are easy to clean and keep clean. Visitors to the tesa stand at FAST Live can discuss the role of tapes in advanced, lightweight trailer construction techniques, and much more, at FAST Live on March 12th.


FAST Live is the UK’s only dedicated fastening, joining and assembly focused exhibition, and offers visitors a unique opportunity to meet and talk with some of the most experienced fastening, bonding and assembly application specialists.
