  • Publication number: 20140377543
    Abstract: An adhesive tape (1), in particular a double-sided adhesive tape has a substrate made of plastic with a self-adhesive, pressure-sensitive layer (3) consisting of a pressure-sensitive adhesive containing a UV-crosslinkable acrylate as primary constituent. In order to achieve an at least moderate, preferably increased adhesive force on nonpolar surfaces (4a) as well as preferably an increased shear strength, while preserving the advantages of the use of UV-crosslinkable acrylates in the adhesive coating and ensuring an at least moderate, preferably increased adhesive force on steel, the pressure-sensitive adhesive contains powdered silicon dioxide, wherein the substrate (2) made of plastic is configured as a film.

  • Publication number: 20140342123
    Abstract: This disclosure features use of a paper or polymer film that includes a slip agent that can transfer to its surfaces. Once the paper or film is pressed against a glass sheet, this will leave a thin surface roughness of slip agent that can prevent or reduce glass surface scratches from other surfaces or particles during shipping or finishing (e.g., cutting to size, conveyance of glass), thereby improving the yield of glass shipments between glass forming plants and customers. The thin discontinuous layer of slip agent remaining on the glass surface can be washed off easily in subsequent washing processes. The paper or film can have the slip agent imbibed within the paper or coated on it as a surface member.

  • Publication number: 20140329084
    Abstract: A polyurethane adhesive having a low gross heat of combustion is used to assemble insulation panels such as mineral wool insulation panels. The polyurethane adhesive contains a polyisocyanate side and a polyol side. The polyol side includes a certain polyether ether polyol and an aromatic polyester diol. The mixture of these polyols provides excellent adhesion together with suitably low viscosities, even at high filler levels, and a cured adhesive that has a low gross heat of combustion.
