Noise/Vibration Damping

For vehicle assembly applications, pressure sensitive tape benefits drivers by offering noise and vibration damping qualities. This aids in an improved driving experience without adding extra weight to the vehicle’s body and hindering its fuel efficiency.

Surface Protection

Pressure sensitive adhesive tape can be used to provide a temporary protective coating over certain surfaces, ensuring they don’t get damaged. This is especially helpful during home and building remodeling projects, which continue to rise in popularity.

Road Marking

Pressure sensitive adhesive tape also aids in driver safety on the roads. For example, road marking tape provides critical guidance especially in unexpected, temporary construction zones. As a result, it helps reduce accident likelihood and mitigate driver confusion. -- However, a pressure sensitive adhesive tape’s ability to insulate, reduce noise, protect surfaces and mark roads is greatly dependent upon the adhesive chosen in the first place.
