Adhesive foam tape is used in many different applications including permanent and temporary bonding, medical device component attachment, gasketing, and much more.
Adhesive foam tapes can create bonds strong enough to replace screws, rivets, welding and other permanent bonding solutions. Strouse can flat bed and rotary die cut acrylic tape and foams to custom sizes, shapes, and formats. We can provide you rolls of material slit to custom widths or parts cut to custom shapes on a roll, on a sheet, or as individual pieces with a liner to protect the adhesive.

Foam tapes are used in almost every industry. Medical manufacturers use foams to bond medical device components together or to secure dressings directly to skin while providing cushioning. The automotive industry is using foam tape for sidewall panel attachment on commercial vehicles, truck bodies, and public service vehicles. Thin foam tape is used in the electronics industry to bond assemblies and attach LCD and touchscreens.
VHB tape is one of 3M’s most popular pressure sensitive adhesive product lines. Since 1980 VHB has set the standard for bonding solutions. 3M manufactures many different VHBs for specific applications. Some VHBs are designed for high surface energy bonding such as glass and metals while others are better suited for low surface energy substrates such as plastics. Most recently 3M has designed two new families of VHBs to improve efficiency for manufacturers. Thin foam tape for electronics’ assemblies are helping engineers bond components while keeping their products thin and lightweight. Primerless VHB is helping automotive manufacturers reduce costs of buying, shipping, and storing primer, while eliminating the health risks to employees are subject to from using primer.
