These SilverTape products are constructed of two different adhesive systems. One side consists of a hotmelt adhesive that is inactive at ambient temperatures. In application to extruded EPDM or TP seals, this adhesive is activated by a heat source. This activated adhesive than melts together with the extruded rubber seal forming a very strong and permanent bond. The other side of the heat activated tape consists of a pressure sensitive adhesive. Here you will typically find the same adhesive system as the ones used in our Automotive SilverTape range.
