Acrylic-Based vs Rubber-Based Tapes

When it comes to adhesive tape, two popular types are acrylic-based and rubber-based tapes. Each has its own unique set of properties and is better suited for specific applications.

Acrylic-based tapes are known for their durability and long-term bond strength. They are more expensive than rubber-based tapes, but perform well in extreme hot and cold temperatures and have a higher resistance to solvents, chemicals, and UV rays. These tapes are ideal for structural bonding and waterproof applications and work well on a wide range of substrates including metal, wood, and glass.

On the other hand, rubber-based tapes are more economical and have a strong initial tack. They are best suited for indoor applications as they have lower performance in hot and cold temperature conditions and are more susceptible to moisture, solvents, and chemicals. They are perfect for non-structural bonding applications and are particularly effective for bonding plastic materials.

When choosing an adhesive tape, it’s essential to consider the specific requirements of your application, including the type of substrates you’ll be bonding and the environmental conditions the tape will be exposed to.
