The study was conducted in conjunction with Rogers Corporation at the Avery Dennison Performance Tapes Painesville Innovation Center, an ISO 17025 certified facility that tests under real and extreme conditions with tight control of environmental conditions. Core Series Portfolio adhesive products were covered with 2 mil PET film and cut to 1″ width. Two sets of samples were laminated to Rogers Griswold cellular rubber materials, one at room temperature and one at 220°F, respectively, with both sets using 30% compression, at 20 fpm, with 72 hour post-roll recovery.
The resulting study ranks the performance of Core Series adhesives when used with Rogers Griswold materials. Using the study in conjunction with the Avery Dennison Core Series Product Selector Tool allows converters to assess bond strength as well as other application requirements to select the right adhesive for the material and application. application.
“The purpose of the study is to use the technical expertise of the Avery Dennison team and our testing facilities to simplify the process of choosing adhesives based on the specific characteristics of Rogers Griswold materials,” says Deanne Lewis, product manager at Avery Dennison Performance. Bands. “Rubber bonding is affected by the base polymer, thickness and cell type of the material, as well as factors such as adhesive mass, pressure, compression, lamination rate and temperature. With this study, converters can confidently specify and quote adhesives for Rogers Griswold products, quickly and accurately. »
“We are pleased to have joined forces with Avery Dennison on this bonding study, which will help our customers make an informed decision when choosing how to bond our rubber products,” notes Miles Natorski, Line Manager. of Griswold products. “Our Griswold cellular rubber products are designed to meet versatile design requirements, while delivering superior value to enterprise customers.”
