Industrial Films & Adhesives
Industrial Film and Adhesive Products do the “Heavy Lifting"
There is nothing casual about Tekra's commitment to supporting our manufacturing customers. It's demonstrated in our extensive line of in-stock products. Tekra's selection of polyester and polycarbonate plastic films and our assortment of industrial adhesives are second to none. We maintain inventories of finished products for just-in-time deliveries from shipping locations across the country. Plus, you can rely on us to cost effectively convert any of our products to varying sizes and thicknesses to meet your project needs in just a few days.
Employing plastic substrates effectively reduces manufacturing costs and increases product flexibility – while maintaining excellent performance even under harsh conditions. The possibilities are relatively endless. It's why Tekra films are used in some unanticipated end products:
- Roof shingles
- Fiberglass reinforced panels
- Hot stamping and foils
- Window blinds
For applications requiring insulators possessing low conductivity and high resistivity, Tekra has the answer. Due to their inherent properties, our Mylar® polyester (PET) and LEXAN™ and VALOX™ films act as excellent insulators -- without harmful emissions. It’s just one more reason why plastic films from Tekra are used in a wide variety of manufacturing applications from heat shields in laptops, cell phones and other microelectronics to …
- Casting blankets
- Insulating motors
- Protective coverings
When industrial strength adhesives and tapes are required, count on Tekra to deliver world-class 3M products. Tekra has an understanding of bonding applications using 3M's transfer tapes built on 19 years of training and experience. It's why 3M names Tekra as a Master Converter. So whether you need to securely bond metal undergoing extreme heat exposure or successfully mount low service energy materials to one another, at Tekra there’s virtually no application we have not tackled successfully with 3M’s bonding solutions.
A Case in Point
3M™ VHB™ Tapes are an effective alternative to screws, rivets, welds and other mechanical fasteners in permanent bonding applications. 3M VHB tapes are versatile. From spreading stress across the entire length of a joint to compensating for differential thermal expansion, 3M VHB tapes provide superior adhesion and performance, even between dissimilar materials. They can bond and seal aluminum, steel, glass, painted and powder-coated surfaces, and plastics such as acrylic and polycarbonate
