Impact Resistant Tapes & Adhesives

Consumer expectations for the appearance, functionality and power of their mobile devices has increased. Manufacturers have responded, in turn, by pushing the boundaries of hardware engineering and design.

Today’s devices are sleeker and lighter than earlier models, using thinner glass, often with a beveled edge. The foam tapes used to bond that glass to the phone are thinner as well, with manufacturers now specifying tapes as thin as 250 microns. The result is that converters are being asked to do more with less—deliver greater impact resistance with thinner tapes.

With deep experience serving the electronics industry, Avery Dennison understands these dynamics well. We possesses the R&D capabilities to help tape converters deliver solutions that will meet manufacturers’ and consumers’ needs for impact resistance.
