Duraco High Bond® (DHB) pressure sensitive tapes are designed to provide a strong bond between a broad variety of substrates. These tapes include a uniform, high-tack, adhesive that will easily bond to most clean, dry, oil-free surfaces. The adhesive was formulated to endure a wide range of external conditions without losing its adhesion strength overtime. They can also be used in multiple markets for a variety of applications while providing amazing benefits such as:

  • Replacing traditional mechanical fasteners
  • Ease of use
  • Excellent weathering properties
  • Sound and vibration dampening
  • Ability to withstand thermal movement

Overall, these tapes were designed to improve manufacturing and assembly processes while improving lead times for end products. Traditional fasteners or adhesives take time to apply and are often costly. With DHB tapes all you do is simply apply to quickly bond two substrates together. Very little preparation work is required, the only necessary step that must be taken is ensuring you have a clean surface to apply the tape to. Providing exceptional strength, these tapes are a confirmed alternative to traditional fasteners such as screws, rivets, nails, and welds.

No matter what you’re building, these tapes can be used for both indoor and outdoor applications as they were designed to withstand heat, cold, stress, fatigue, vibration, temperature cycling, moisture, chemical, and UV exposure. You can also create an aesthetically pleasing outcome by using tapes to unnoticeably adhere substrates together. This can be done by evenly distributing the stress load across the entire length of the joint to prevent the noticeable single point welds throughout the surface.

DHB tapes break the obstacles that traditional fasteners and adhesives deliver by providing ease of application, reliability, and strength. From appliances to trucks, these tapes improve design production, aesthetics, and overall output while improving the reliability of end products. Talk to our tape experts to discover how DHB can be used to replace traditional fasteners to help you build faster and better.
