Polyethylene foams as backing material for technical tapes

Polymeric foams and polyolefin foams in particular are widely used in the industry to produce a large range of tapes for industrial, household, electronic, medical and construction applications.

This presentation will give a short outline on the production process of polyolefin foams, followed by an overview on physical and chemical properties of such foams. Depending on the density and the composition, the properties can be tailored to meet the requirements of the application, so the foam is suitable for e.g. a sealing tape, a fixation tape, a high performance mounting tape or an ECG electrode.

Particularities which need to be taken into account when producing a foam tape will also be considered.
