PSA Tape, Tape GC, Tape AGC, Tape ALR and Tape PU
Pressure Sensitive Adhesive - PSA (also known as adhesive tapes) are adhesives that adhere to a variety of substrates when applied with pressure. The adhesive film bonds to the substrate with without the need for solvent, heat, or water for activation. Applied pressure is necessary in order to achieve sufficient wet-out onto the substrate surface to provide adequate adhesion. The primary mode of bonding a PSA backed product is not chemical or mechanical, but polar attraction to the substrate surface. It is a quick and easy ‘peel and stick’ method of applying Pyrotek® acoustic insulation products without the need for solvent based adhesives and reduces the need for mechanical fixing.
Tape GC is a pressure sensitive thermal insulation joining tape with a glass cloth face and a self-adhesive backing which is protected by a silicone release paper for an easy peel-and-stick application. It's especially suited to tape edges and joins of fabric faced insulation materials.
Tape AGC is a pressure sensitive thermal insulation adhesive tape, composed of aluminium-glass cloth backing, combined with a high performance solvent acrylic adhesive, protected by an easy-release silicone release paper.
Tape ALR reinforced aluminium foil tape is designed to behave as a joining and covering tape for Pyrotek's aluminium foil faced Soundlag, Sorberfoam, Sorbertextile, Sorberpolyester, and Subdue products.
Tape PU is a high quality pressure-sensitive joining tape with a black polyurethane film (PU) face of 25 microns. It's primarily used as a joining or finishing tape to seal edges and joins.
