Adchem Announces Bonding Study for Rogers PORON® Low-outgassing and Non-fogging Urethane Foams

Riverhead, NY (PRWEB) March 24, 2014

Adchem Corporation, a major supplier of pressure-sensitive adhesive (PSA) tapes for the automotive, transportation, and industrial markets, issued a bonding study of adhesive tape systems for six Rogers Corporation PORON® Urethane Foam products tested against 12 Adchem tape systems. The study included PORON® Urethane 4790 and 4701 materials used in communications, automotive, electronics, and industrial device gasketing, sealing, and cushioning applications.

The Adchem PORON® study was conducted both with and without heat during the lamination process as well as at room temperature and at elevated temperatures, after aging. Adchems study provides bond strengths for each foam matched to a broad range of PSA transfer tapes and double-sided tape constructions, including new Low Surface Energy (LSE) adhesive formulations. The study is available at Adchem foam bonding studies and demonstrates the importance of matching the correct pressure-sensitive product to specific grades of similar materials. Adchems interactive website,, provides detailed studies and in-depth comparative analysis for each of the adhesive systems tested.

All Adchems double-sided, single-coated, and unsupported adhesive tape systems are REACH compliant. The companys products are supported by advanced engineering capabilities, guiding engineers to more than 200 different product constructions in over 50 different adhesive systems while meeting the most demanding industrial and consumer applications.
