Published on 2007-11-01. Author : SpecialChem

Scapa North America offers a line of high performance acrylic foam tapes for light aircraft manufacturing and maintenance. Scapa acrylic foam tapes (AFT) create permanent, reliable bonds and are designed to reduce the amount of mechanical fasteners and welds, improving the overall aesthetics of the plane and reducing its weight.

Formulated to withstand weather and temperature variations, Scapa acrylic foam tapes create high strength bonds to a variety of substrates including metals, glass, plastics, composite materials and painted surfaces. These tapes provide excellent long-term holding power and maintain adhesion even at sub-zero temperatures. Offering excellent aging and weathering properties, these acrylic foam tapes will withstand thermal movement, yet will not absorb moisture or become brittle with age. All products are flexible, compressible and conformable for easy application to intricate contours.

Scapa acrylic foam tapes are formulated to resist solvents and moisture and to withstand vibration. In addition to structural assembly, these products can also be used on wire anchors, wire bundles and interior placards.
