These products are double sided high performance acrylic based adhesive tapes, which are especially designed for
a wide variety of materials with high and medium surface. The tapes are capable of absorbing the differing thermal
expansions of the two different materials. Because of their toughness, these tapes are, when used on the right
substrates with high surface energy, the strongest bond we are able to produce. This acrylic foam tape has a very
high temperature resistance. In combination with a primer this SilverTape family guarantees excellent adhesion
performance even on medium surface energy materials.

SilverTape® 5304, 5305, 5308, 5310, 5315, 5320, 5321 and 5325
Are double sided high performance acrylic based adhesive tapes, which are especially designed for the bonding of
high and medium energy surfaces as well as glass and various transparent plastics where a highly transparent bond
is required and no stress corrosion may occur. Due to their conformability they are capable of bonding a variety of
different thin and structured materials full surface and tension free. The tapes are capable of absorbing the differing
thermal expansions of the two different materials. Important is to avoid stress and tension on the bond during
application. This 53-series maintain high impact resistance even at temperatures below 0 °Celsius. More advantages:
vibration dampening, very good sealing properties, very good resistance to weathering, aging, yellowing (UV
influence), chemicals, plasticizers, resulting in excellent long term stability.

SilverTape® 5332 and 5352
These products are double sided acrylic based adhesive tapes, which are especially designed to bond a wide variety
of plastic substrates. The surface tension of these materials may require further developed products than our
general purpose series. Where our coating 40 can be used in some cases of plastic applications, the coating 50 has
been developed for applications where a better bond to plastics is needed and the use of primer is not desirable.
These tapes are capable of absorbing the differing thermal expansions of the two different materials which in
plastics can be extremely high. These types maintain high impact resistance even at temperatures below 0˚Celsius.

These products are double sided acrylic based adhesive tapes, which are especially designed for a wide variety
of materials with low surface energy. The tapes are capable of absorbing the differing thermal expansions of
the two different materials. These types maintain high impact resistance even at temperatures below 0 ˚Celsius.
This modified multipurpose adhesive tape is suitable for (powder) coatings and several plastics with low energy
surfaces (LSE) and has been specifically developed for applications where the use of a primer or adhesion promoter
is not needed. High performance tapes from the 64 series have an excellent initial tack and adhesion during the
application of powder coated surfaces, plastics, coated glass and other low surface energy surfaces. Other features
include good plasticizer resistance and very good adaptability.

SilverTape® 8302, 8304, 8402, 8404, 8502 and 8504
These thin tapes are designed to adhere to various surfaces. The thin adhesive film allows a good adhesive
performance on a variety of molded parts. These AFT Types have excellent UV, aging, solvent and high temperature
resistance. These series are in many situations virtually invisible and allow the usage of light weight, thin and small
materials in many shapes and sizes. For difficult to bond surfaces, as being used in today’s modern electronic
assembly industry, we refer to SilverTape® AFT 8402 or AFT 8404. In situations where the bond needs to be invisible
we recommend to use SilverTape® AFT 8502 and AFT 8504.

SilverTape® Industrial 6004, 6008 and 6011
The 60-series are high performance double sided adhesive tapes with the highest inner strength, good shear and
good peel properties. The tapes are capable of absorbing the differing thermal expansions of the two different
materials. One should avoid shear stress on both substrates during bonding. Due to their conformability they are
capable of bonding a variety of different thin and structured materials full surface and tension free. Furthermore
these AFT tapes find wide use in applications like reinforcement of profiles on aluminum facades and road signs. In
combination with a primer this AFT tape family guarantees excellent adhesion performance. However, when using a
primer, the tape is no longer suitable to the powdercoating process. Where the tapes have an excellent temperature
resistance, the primer don’t have this quality with a result of a burned primer and a low adhesion. For low surface
energy applications we recommend our Low Surface Energy (LSE) tapes, the AFT 6404, AFT 6406, AFT 6408, AFT
6411 and the 6415.

SilverTape – Low Temperature
SilverTape® 5343, 5351 and 5353
These double sided acrylic based adhesive tapes are especially designed for the bonding of high and medium energy
substrates in low temperature ranges. The adhesive coating 41 ensures an excellent initial tack and end strength at
temperatures as low as 0° Celsius (32° Fahrenheit). These products are capable of absorbing the differing thermal
expansions of the two different materials and maintains high impact resistance even at temperatures below 0°
Celsius. This SilverTape series has a very high initial tack due to AFTC’s coating 41 and has a very good plasticizer
resistance. In many cases, the minimum bonding temperature of 15°C cannot be reached. In these, mainly exterior,
applications, this SilverTape Series offer an excellent solution.

SilverTape® 5106, 5108 and 5115
These SiverTapes are removable double sided acrylic based adhesive tapes, designed for a wide variety of materials
with high and medium surface. They are capable of absorbing the differing thermal expansions of the two different
materials but are, due to their high density, removable from their substrates without leaving a trace. This ability to be
removed of course means the peel adhesion of these products is relatively low compared to our other products. Howe-
ver, these products ensure a high sheer and T-block strength. Besides their adhesive values, these tape offer aesthetic
advantages due to their transparency. These SilverTapes are widely used in the building and construction of, mostly
temporary, fair pavilions and stands where clean removability and re-using the materials is paramount.

Structural Cladding SilverTape® is a high performance double sided pressure sensitive acrylic foam tape. It is used
to attach metal frames and aluminum composite panels in wall systems, replacing commonly used mechanical
fasteners, gaskets or structural silicone sealants. Application performance history since 2000 and 3rd party testing
demonstrate the outstanding durability, UV resistance and temperature performance of AFTC SilverTape® chemistry.
The very high bond strength and excellent durability (long holding power) allow Structural Cladding tapes of AFTC
to replace silicone sealants in applications where aluminum is bonded to metal frames or other structural cladding
applications. The Structural Cladding Assembly should only take place in a well-controlled factory environment.

AFTC Cleaner and Primers
To achieve the perfect bond, surface preparation is
a must. The AFTC SilverClean and Primers 33 and
101 will help you to reach this by offering excellent
cleaning and priming characteristics.
AFTC SilverClean
The AFTC SilverClean is an isopropanol/alcohol
mixture (IPA). This cleaner has excellent degreasing
capabilities and is, due to its volatile nature,
extremely suitable for time critical applications
which many of our, and our customers’, applications
are. The AFTC SilverClean is suitable for light to
medium contaminated materials. Grease, dust, oils
etc. are easily removed by this cleaner.
In case of high contamination levels, AFTC advises
a more aggressive cleaner like MEK, Heptan or
Aceton.
AFTC Primers 33 & 101
AFTC Primers are designed to work in conjunction
with acrylic pressure sensitive adhesive systems.
When used correctly, adhesion promoters become
a thin film on the surface of the material on which it
is applied. The film anchors itself onto the material
surface. The surface energy of this film is typically
higher than the material to which the adhesion
promoter is applied. The higher the surface energy
level, the better the bond of the pressure sensitive
adhesive. The adhesion promoters are compatible
with AFTC Group SilverTape acrylic foam tapes.
AFTC offers two different primers; the 33 and the
101. Although both primers cover a lot of the same
materials, we see slightly better performance of
the 33 in combination with powder coated metals,
whereas the 101 shows a better performance on
a wide variety of polymers (plastics). To determine
which primer is suitable for your application, please
contact your AFTC Technical Sales Engineer.

Equipment
To offer our customers complete system solutions, AFTC has partnered with several manufacturers of application
equipment. Depending on their needs, wishes and price range, AFTC is able to offer suitable custom made solutions for
any inquiry. These solutions differ from simple cutters and pressers,
to extensive, fully automated, in-line applicators that apply thousands of meters of tape everyday with hardly any human
interaction. Please contact your AFTC Technical Sales Representative for any inquiry.
Our partners are able to manufacture any kind of tape applicator, laminator and presser. An example is shown on the
drawing/picture above. This hand laminator can also be fitted onto a fixture for in-line tape application and can be adjusted
for the use of slit or spool rolls. Besides these applicators any kind of custom made equipment is available at our customers’
request.

Automotive
The AFTC SilverTapes are widely used in the modern day automotive industry. In applications that, ten years ago,
were dominantly bonded by traditional bonding methods like rivets, screws, clips or welding, nowadays 90% of these
applications have been substituted by adhesives and in particular acrylic foam tapes due to their specific characteristics.
Applications - Automotive
31
Materials
Typically in automotive the bond is plastic to painted
metal. The type of plastic used for the manufacturing
of the parts, in combination with the clearcoat finish
of the car, require a certain type of adhesive system.
The thickness of the chosen adhesive depends,
besides on the materials, on the length of the bond,
the design and the stress levels endured by the parts.
Surface preparation
The surface tension of the materials sometimes
requires a surface preparation in the form of plasma,
corona or liquid primer. More information on
available primers can be found on pages 27 and 45.
Heat activated Silvertapes
Besides the applications where AFTC pressure
sensitive SilverTapes are used, AFTC’s heat activated
SilverTapes are used for the bonding of soft EPDM
weather seals all around the car. The heat activated
tapes consist of a pressure sensitive SilverTape on
one side and a hot melt on the other. This hot melt is
laminated onto the freshly extruded rubber seal and
therefore offers a very strong bond to this, otherwise
sheer impossible to bond, material.
32
Applications
All this results in the general capability of the AFTC
SilverTapes to bond all applications on the car; door
trims, body side mouldings, roof trims, roof ditch
mouldings, emblems, shark fin antennas, spoilers,
treat plates, weather seals etc.
Dimensions
AFTC offers its automotive SilverTapes in any shape
or form. For low volume trim applications we offer
slit rolls in the desired width with lengths of 33 or 66
meters. For high volume (automated) trimapplications
we offer spool rolls with lengths up to 1500 meters,
depending on the type of adhesive, width and
thickness of the required SilverTape. Besides available
roll dimensions, we offer a wide variety of custom
designed die-cuts. In close cooperation with our
converters, any required form or shape can be offered
to answer our customers’ needs. More information
about our converting capabilities can be found on
page 47.

Structural Glazing
Since the mid 90’s adhesive systems have been used
in structural glazing. Applications that, to that point,
were dominated by mechanical fixtures, were now
more and more bonded. Besides the obvious aesthe-
tic advantage, the use of adhesives offers many more
advantages over traditional bonding methods in struc-
tural glazing. In traditional glazing facades, the fixtures
were put through the glass. This meant holes had to
be drilled through the glass with several disadvanta-
ges as a result. Besides the obvious risk of breaking
the glass, the integrity of the glass façade was com-
promised due to the ‘damaging’ of the glass and the
glass panels possibly lost their water resistance due to
dried out rubbers around the fixture area.
At that point there basically were two adhesive
systems to choose from; silicones and acrylic foam
tapes. Both these systems had and have the same
advantages over mechanical fixtures, however, differ
from one another in many ways.
Applications - Building & Construction
34
Silicones or acrylic foam tapes?
Both adhesive systems offer flexibility and therefor
strength of the bond in situations where wind load or
even earthquakes tend to put a certain stress on the
bond.
Compared to silicones however, acrylic foam tapes
offer several advantages. Besides aesthetic advantages
of the narrow and straight bond line of an acrylic foam
tape, these products offer significant cost reductions.
These reductions are the result of an increase in
productivity when utilising an acrylic foam tape for
your structural glazing applications. Especially the
AFTC Structural Glazing SilverTapes show excellent
results; the production speed increases, there are no
drying times, less debris, no necessary spacers and an
overall improvement in productivity.
Products: SGG, SGW, SGB
35
Warranty applications
Structural Glazing applications are typically high
profile buildings and structures. Because of this, and
the obvious risks involved, AFTC’s customers can apply
for warranties on their applications. If a warranty is
issued highly depends on the project, the location and
the approval of the AFTC Head office. To obtain these
warranties, the customer will need to follow the steps
as shown in the Warranty Business Map;
When all steps are fulfilled and the required
paperwork has been arranged, AFTC will grant
a written warranty on the application. For more
information concerning warranties in structural
glazing, please contact your AFTC Representative.
Facade building
The difference between structural glazing and façade
panels is the material the panel is made of. Where
in structural glazing the panel obviously is made of
glass, in facades, the panel can be made of different
materials. In most cases an aluminium composite or
sandwich panel is used but wood or plastic can also
be used in the manufacturing of these panels. The
requirements concerning warranty are the same as
for Structural Glazing applications

Partitioning & doors
In modern day architecture and project development,
office buildings are completed without an actual floor
plan. Except for units like kitchens and toilets, hardly
any interior walls are built to offer the eventual buyer
or tenant maximum flexibility when it comes down to
the final design of the office floor.
Offices, conference rooms and other designated
areas are separated using partitioning walls. These
walls typically consist of a glass panel bonded to an
(painted) aluminium or steel frame. The application is
very similar to the Structural Glazing applications as
mentioned above but because of the interior use, the
risks and stresses on these bonds are significantly less.
The principles of door production are basically the
same; a panel (composite, wood, plastic etc,) is
bonded to a steel or aluminium frame.
Elevators
The AFTC SilverTapes are used by some of the world’s
leading elevator manufacturers for the bonding of the
interior of the elevator carts. The constant moving of
the elevator puts stresses on the bond lines. These
bonds were typically done by rivets or screws. The
constant stresses resulted in loosened rivet and screw
holes which led to rattling noises in the elevators.
With the use of AFTC SilverTape, these noises are
minimised or eliminated altogether. Besides this,
you can imagine the aesthetics are very important
to these manufacturers as well. Applications in this
industry are floor, wall and ceiling panels as well as
the lighting and instrument panels.
37
AFTC SilverTapes are widely used in several areas
of transportation. Trains, trams, busses, airplanes,
mobile homes, caravans, subway carts, trailers
are many of the applications we gather under the
umbrella “transportation”. Because of the diversity
of material and applications within transportation,
AFTC offers their full range of industrial tapes to their
customers.
Trailer building
In the applications of trailers, AFTC SilverTapes are
used for the bonding of roof-, wall- and floor panels as
well as corner profiles, lighting and reflective plating
for the exterior of the trailer. In many cases AFTC
customers have decided to switch from rivets and
screws to AFTC SilverTape. This switch has significantly
improved the speed of their production process and
with that their production costs. Besides this obvious
aesthetic and cost advantage, AFTC SilverTape has
reduced the sound of the vibrating trailer by 40-50%.
Applications - Transportation
38
Different models of caravans and mobile homes, in
many cases, have the same pre-fab interior or exterior
parts. These parts such as full shower or bathroom
units, in the past were mainly riveted or glued into
the interior. Due to the friction of these vehicles, the
rivets would loosen, resulting in vibrating sounds. The
application using liquid glues obviously required long
drying times. Both these bonding methods can be
replaced using our AFTC SilverTape. Other applications
in this area of the market are exterior trims, lighting
and windows.
In the manufacturing of busses liquid adhesives
have always had a prominent role. Due to uneven
surfaces, welds and high torque this is still the
preferred bonding method. However, the quest for
improvement of productivity and cost reduction
has opened the door for AFTC SilverTape as well.
Together with the engineering teams of several
leading bus manufacturers AFTC has found some very
interesting applications. The hatches for the luggage
compartment being an interesting example AFTC
SilverTape is now used to bond the aluminium sheet
to the steel frame of the hatch. Besides the obvious
holding power and increase in production speed, this
brings another advantage; the AFTC SilverTape forms
a barrier between the two metals preventing bi-metal
corrosion.
Other SilverTape applications in the manufacturing of
busses are logo, emblem, exterior trim, floor- & roof
panels and lighting.
39
The applications in the white goods industry can
divided into two general areas; assembly of the
housing and attachment of exterior parts.
Housing
The housing of washing machines etc. nowadays
is typically powder coated. This very strong finish
exposes some challenges concerning the bonding.
Powder coatings have a low surface tension and
are therefore challenging to bond to. The challenge
that has two solutions; bonding before the powder
coating process using the AFTC SilverTape 60-Series or
bonding after the process using the AFTC SilverTape
64-Series. These SilverTapes have been especially
formulated for these purposes and offer great
adhesive values for all applications.
Instrument panels
Exterior parts for ovens, microwaves, refrigerators,
dishwashers, washing machines and dryers typically
require AFTC SilverTape die-cuts. All AFTC products
are offered as die-cuts in any shape or size. For more
information about converting solution please see
page 47 or contact your AFTC Representative.
Applications - Home appliances
40
Road- & commercial signs
The two major areas for AFTC SilverTape in this market
are without a doubt road signs and commercial signs.
Road signs are in most cases made of an aluminium
sheet or sandwich panel bonded to a steel frame.
In the past, rivets were used to attach the panels
to the frames. Because of the two different metals
being used and the rivets being pressed through
the materials, bi-metal corrosion was very common.
Using AFTC SilverTape offers an excellent solution for
this by forming a barrier between the frame and the
sheet. Besides this, other advantages are an increase
in productivity and obvious aesthetic improvements
compared to the many visible rivets in the past.
Commercial
Commercial signs on the other hand have more
aesthetic value and are in many cases made of
translucent materials such as polycarbonate, PMMA
or polyester. The combination of bonding to these
materials and the demands of the customers
concerning the (in)visibility of the tape has been
a challenge. AFTC’s transparent SilverTapes have
proven to be an excellent solution. These optically
clear tapes are relatively soft and therefore extremely
conformable to ensure a good adhesion to the above
mentioned polymers.
Applications - Signing
41
Tablets, smartphones, desktops, televisions and
laptops are getting smaller and thinner with every
new release. The screens of these devices however
need a strong bond but because of restrictions
in dimensions this bonding power needs to be
achieved by a relatively small adhesive surface.
AFTC SilverTapes used in electronics are the thinnest
products in the spectrum. Thickness as thin as
0,15mm are very common in this industry and ensure
excellent adhesive values.
Besides the screen several other, smaller applications
can be found in many of these devices. The mounting
of charging sockets, cameras, motherboards etc. are
some of the applications to think of.
LED lighting has skyrocketed the past years. LED strips
or singles LED lights are being manufactured by the
millions. The LED strips, used for example in aircraft
to show the direction to the nearest exit, are bonded
with the AFTC transparent SilverTapes that is applied
at the LED manufacturer. Because of the high volume
AFTC supplies their transparent tapes on spool rolls as
well as slit- and logrolls.
For the adhesion of single LED’s our converters can
offer die-cuts in any shape or size required by the
customer.
Applications - Electronics
42
Solar panels
AFTC SilverTapes are highly suitable for the
construction and placement of solar panels. The panel
itself offers many applications as well as the mounting
of the panels to frames, walls or rooftops.
A solar panel in most cases is constructed of two glass
plates in between which the actual solar cells are
placed. Using AFTC SilverTape in the same thickness as
the cells, protects the cells and the water resistance
of the AFTC SilverTape ensures a 100% waterproof
construction. For aesthetic reasons these glass to glass
bonds are done with AFTC’s transparent SilverTapes.
The panels are then bonded to an aluminium frame
using the AFTC general purpose SilverTapes.
Electric parts
Electrical parts like junction boxes are bonded to the
back of the panel in most cases using a die-cut of AFTC
SilverTape.
To keep from corroding, the glass/aluminium panels is
then bonded to the steel frames in a field, on a wall or
rooftop using the AFTC SilverTape.
Applications - Solar panels

APPLICATION
INSTRUCTIONS

Application instructions
Cleaning
To clean your light and medium contaminated
substrates, AFTC offers the AFTC SilverClean. Any
isopropanol/alcohol solution (IPA) is also acceptable.
When cleaning your substrate, a tear free, light
colored paper towel is required. Wipe the substrate
in one direction using the one cloth method (one
cloth with cleaner) or a two cloth method (one cloth
with cleaner and one dry cloth to follow) is acceptable
if you are short on time. Repeat these steps until
your cloth is clean and free of any contaminants. For
heavily contaminated substrates, use a cleaning agent
such as MEK, Heptan or Acetone. These cleaning
agents may leave a residue. which would have to be
removed using the IPA cleaner.
You can clean your substrates using the one cloth
method; one light colored paper towel drenched in
cleaner.
Or, if you are short on time, use the two cloth
method; one light colored paper towel drenched in
cleaner, followed by one dry light coloured paper
towel.
Abrading
When bonding to raw aluminum, abrading of the
surface is a must. The oils used in the waltzing of the
aluminum are pressed into the pores of the material.
To remove these oils, that will influence the bond, we
recommend using the AFTC SilverPads. These abrasive
pads ensure the proper level of abrasion without
damaging your substrates. Besides raw aluminum,
abrading is a method utilized to help improve your
bond. After the abrasion process is completed,
remove any residue using an IPA cleaner following the
methods mentioned above.
45
Primer
The use of a primer is recommended when bonding
to some low surface energy substrates. Examples
include, different types of polymers, powder coated
metals, or porous materials such as wood, cork, stone
or concrete.
Primers are also used to help speed up your
production process. The AFTC SilverTape line can take
up to 72 hours to reach its end-strength. The use of
a primer ensures the end-strength will be achieved
within 20 minutes.
AFTC offers two primers; the primer 33 and the
primer 101. Determining which one of these primers
is suitable for your application ultimately depends on
the substrates and environmental influences. Your
AFTC technical support will gladly advise you which
primer to use.
Tape application
After the Primer is completely dry, the AFTC Silvertape
can be applied on the substrate. Position the AFTC
SilverTape on the material and apply light pressure by
pushing the thumb over the liner. Make sure that the
air between the tape and material is removed.
46
Pressure
AFTC SilverTapes are pressure sensitive adhesives.
Therefore, a minimum amount of pressure is required
on the bond line to ensure the maximum adhesion to
your substrates. This pressure should be applied in a
rolling fashion. A hand roller or mechanical presser
are the preferred methods. The pressure on the bond
line must be a minimum of at least 10N/cm².
Liner removal
To remove the liners from the AFTC SilverTapes we
recommend the use of either a knife, scissors or a file
brush.

SHAPES AND SIZES
48
Shapes and sizes
Because AFTC continues to expand, customers from
around the world are requesting AFTC’s SilverTapes
by name to fulfil their acrylic foam tape requirements.
There are so many diverse applications that require
special shapes and unusual sizes, that AFTC sales
departments have become inundated with RFQ’s
(Request For Quote). AFTC’s solution is to utilize our
strong and reliable converter network in order to offer
our customers the speed and flexibility they have
become accustomed to from AFTC.
Jumbo roll
Products are produced as jumbo rolls. A Jumbo roll
is a large roll where the overall size can vary from
500mm x 165mtr to 900mm x 330mtr. The ultimate
width and length will depend on the type of product
and most importantly, the total thickness of the
product. Jumbo rolls are mostly used in high volume
die-cut applications.
Log roll
A jumbo roll normally will provide up to 10 log
rolls. The log roll format is the most widely used
configuration by our converters and distributors.
Because our converters have extensive converting
capabilities, they are able to process AFTC SilverTape
to virtually any size required. The standard widths
range from 500mm or 900mm, however, some widths
will vary depending on the type of product and the
total thickness. The standard lengths are normally
16,5mtr or 33mtr. The general rule of thumb is,
any tape that has a thickness 1.6mm or greater, the
standard length is 16,5 mtr. Any product that is under
1,6mm, the standard length is 33 meters. 66 mtr’s or
longer is available upon request.
49
Slit roll
AFTC Distributors and Converters, cut the logrolls
into the desired width of slit roll before sending it to
the end-user. Slit rolls can be produced in virtually
any width, ranging from 4mm up to 300 mm in
width. Some applications require very precise width,
whereas other applications will need wider tapes
whereby the tolerances are not as stringent. Choosing
proper width is based on a variety of factors, like
the bonding strength required, the size of the part
but also on other factors like the width of the profile
which must be bonded and the type of substrates.
Spool roll
AFTC is also able to offer our customers yet another
processing option for our SilverTapes, spool rolls.
Mainly used in the automotive industry, a spool roll
is constructed using a traverse winding system to
produce one large reel or roll. AFTC can provide spool
rolls from 4mm to 25mm with a continuous operating
length of 700 mtr to 1200 mtr with limited splices.
The maximum length of a spool roll is dependent
on the total thickness and width of the tape used.
Because of the long and continuous lengths compared
to a “pancake roll” there is less variability due to less
change over. The net result is that you can run longer
and faster improving your profitability.
Die-cut
AFTC’s end users typically use die cuts. A die-cut is a
specific shape or size of our tape and is used to bond
either similar or dissimilar materials for a specific
application. AFTC works in collaboration with several
converters who are specialized in mass production
of die cuts. These die-cuts from the AFTC SilverTapes
are used in applications in white goods, automotive
sensors, automotive spoilers, tablets, mobile phones
and many other applications.
Liner
Liners play a very important role for the processing
of acrylic foam tape. Many customers will require a
paper liner instead of the standard non – siliconized
130 µm red PE Liner. AFTC does offer the option of
a paper liner for all of our products. The 130 µm red
PE liner is the standard. A siliconized version of our
130 µm red PE film is available, however, it is used
primarily on our LSE series (64 and 96 series) due
to the very aggressive nature of the LSE adhesive
system.
Pull tab
AFTC can also offer our customers the option of a
pull tab. A pull tab is a small piece affixed to the edge
of the die cut piece in order to aid in the removal of
the liner. Several automotive customers utilize AFTC
pull tabs to help improve speed and efficiency during
production. AFTC offers three different kind of pull
tabs. The selection of the proper pull tab is dependent
from the type of product and liner being used as well
as the required adhesive and release values. AFTC
recommends using the ET9394 with our AM93 and
AM94 series tapes and ET9698 for our AM96 and
AM98 series tape.
Besides these two plastic pulltabs, AFTC offers a
variety of heat bond pulltabs. These aluminum
pulltabs are bonded to the liner by a heat source and
ensure an extremely high adhesion to the liner.

  • 13. 11 SilverTape® Industrial 6004, 6008 and 6011 The 60-series are high performance double sided adhesive tapes with the highest inner strength, good shear and good peel properties. The tapes are capable of absorbing the differing thermal expansions of the two different materials. One should avoid shear stress on both substrates during bonding. Due to their conformability they are capable of bonding a variety of different thin and structured materials full surface and tension free. Furthermore these AFT tapes find wide use in applications like reinforcement of profiles on aluminum facades and road signs. In combination with a primer this AFT tape family guarantees excellent adhesion performance. However, when using a primer, the tape is no longer suitable to the powdercoating process. Where the tapes have an excellent temperature resistance, the primer don’t have this quality with a result of a burned primer and a low adhesion. For low surface energy applications we recommend our Low Surface Energy (LSE) tapes, the AFT 6404, AFT 6406, AFT 6408, AFT 6411 and the 6415.

  • 29. 27 AFTC Cleaner and Primers To achieve the perfect bond, surface preparation is a must. The AFTC SilverClean and Primers 33 and 101 will help you to reach this by offering excellent cleaning and priming characteristics. AFTC SilverClean The AFTC SilverClean is an isopropanol/alcohol mixture (IPA). This cleaner has excellent degreasing capabilities and is, due to its volatile nature, extremely suitable for time critical applications which many of our, and our customers’, applications are. The AFTC SilverClean is suitable for light to medium contaminated materials. Grease, dust, oils etc. are easily removed by this cleaner. In case of high contamination levels, AFTC advises a more aggressive cleaner like MEK, Heptan or Aceton. AFTC Primers 33 & 101 AFTC Primers are designed to work in conjunction with acrylic pressure sensitive adhesive systems. When used correctly, adhesion promoters become a thin film on the surface of the material on which it is applied. The film anchors itself onto the material surface. The surface energy of this film is typically higher than the material to which the adhesion promoter is applied. The higher the surface energy level, the better the bond of the pressure sensitive adhesive. The adhesion promoters are compatible with AFTC Group SilverTape acrylic foam tapes. AFTC offers two different primers; the 33 and the 101. Although both primers cover a lot of the same materials, we see slightly better performance of the 33 in combination with powder coated metals, whereas the 101 shows a better performance on a wide variety of polymers (plastics). To determine which primer is suitable for your application, please contact your AFTC Technical Sales Engineer. Cleaner and Primers

Applications - Automotive
  • 33. 31 Materials Typically in automotive the bond is plastic to painted metal. The type of plastic used for the manufacturing of the parts, in combination with the clearcoat finish of the car, require a certain type of adhesive system. The thickness of the chosen adhesive depends, besides on the materials, on the length of the bond, the design and the stress levels endured by the parts. Surface preparation The surface tension of the materials sometimes requires a surface preparation in the form of plasma, corona or liquid primer. More information on available primers can be found on pages 27 and 45. Heat activated Silvertapes Besides the applications where AFTC pressure sensitive SilverTapes are used, AFTC’s heat activated SilverTapes are used for the bonding of soft EPDM weather seals all around the car. The heat activated tapes consist of a pressure sensitive SilverTape on one side and a hot melt on the other. This hot melt is laminated onto the freshly extruded rubber seal and therefore offers a very strong bond to this, otherwise sheer impossible to bond, material.
  • 34. 32 Applications All this results in the general capability of the AFTC SilverTapes to bond all applications on the car; door trims, body side mouldings, roof trims, roof ditch mouldings, emblems, shark fin antennas, spoilers, treat plates, weather seals etc. Dimensions AFTC offers its automotive SilverTapes in any shape or form. For low volume trim applications we offer slit rolls in the desired width with lengths of 33 or 66 meters. For high volume (automated) trimapplications we offer spool rolls with lengths up to 1500 meters, depending on the type of adhesive, width and thickness of the required SilverTape. Besides available roll dimensions, we offer a wide variety of custom designed die-cuts. In close cooperation with our converters, any required form or shape can be offered to answer our customers’ needs. More information about our converting capabilities can be found on page 47.
  • 35. 33 Structural Glazing Since the mid 90’s adhesive systems have been used in structural glazing. Applications that, to that point, were dominated by mechanical fixtures, were now more and more bonded. Besides the obvious aesthe- tic advantage, the use of adhesives offers many more advantages over traditional bonding methods in struc- tural glazing. In traditional glazing facades, the fixtures were put through the glass. This meant holes had to be drilled through the glass with several disadvanta- ges as a result. Besides the obvious risk of breaking the glass, the integrity of the glass façade was com- promised due to the ‘damaging’ of the glass and the glass panels possibly lost their water resistance due to dried out rubbers around the fixture area. At that point there basically were two adhesive systems to choose from; silicones and acrylic foam tapes. Both these systems had and have the same advantages over mechanical fixtures, however, differ from one another in many ways. Applications - Building & Construction
  • 36. 34 Silicones or acrylic foam tapes? Both adhesive systems offer flexibility and therefor strength of the bond in situations where wind load or even earthquakes tend to put a certain stress on the bond. Compared to silicones however, acrylic foam tapes offer several advantages. Besides aesthetic advantages of the narrow and straight bond line of an acrylic foam tape, these products offer significant cost reductions. These reductions are the result of an increase in productivity when utilising an acrylic foam tape for your structural glazing applications. Especially the AFTC Structural Glazing SilverTapes show excellent results; the production speed increases, there are no drying times, less debris, no necessary spacers and an overall improvement in productivity.

  • 37. 35 Warranty applications Structural Glazing applications are typically high profile buildings and structures. Because of this, and the obvious risks involved, AFTC’s customers can apply for warranties on their applications. If a warranty is issued highly depends on the project, the location and the approval of the AFTC Head office. To obtain these warranties, the customer will need to follow the steps as shown in the Warranty Business Map; When all steps are fulfilled and the required paperwork has been arranged, AFTC will grant a written warranty on the application. For more information concerning warranties in structural glazing, please contact your AFTC Representative. Facade building The difference between structural glazing and façade panels is the material the panel is made of. Where in structural glazing the panel obviously is made of glass, in facades, the panel can be made of different materials. In most cases an aluminium composite or sandwich panel is used but wood or plastic can also be used in the manufacturing of these panels. The requirements concerning warranty are the same as for Structural Glazing applications Products: SC12G, SC12W, SC12B AFTC Warranty Business Process Map Only once for System Business Steps Data Result Timeline Customer project InspecƟon First Customer visit Samples for TesƟng at laboratory Build Prototype at customer Equipment for producƟon Audit ProducƟon by AFTC/ InsƟtute ProducƟon finished Project specs.

  • 38. 36 Partitioning & doors In modern day architecture and project development, office buildings are completed without an actual floor plan. Except for units like kitchens and toilets, hardly any interior walls are built to offer the eventual buyer or tenant maximum flexibility when it comes down to the final design of the office floor. Offices, conference rooms and other designated areas are separated using partitioning walls. These walls typically consist of a glass panel bonded to an (painted) aluminium or steel frame. The application is very similar to the Structural Glazing applications as mentioned above but because of the interior use, the risks and stresses on these bonds are significantly less. The principles of door production are basically the same; a panel (composite, wood, plastic etc,) is bonded to a steel or aluminium frame. Elevators The AFTC SilverTapes are used by some of the world’s leading elevator manufacturers for the bonding of the interior of the elevator carts. The constant moving of the elevator puts stresses on the bond lines. These bonds were typically done by rivets or screws. The constant stresses resulted in loosened rivet and screw holes which led to rattling noises in the elevators. With the use of AFTC SilverTape, these noises are minimised or eliminated altogether. Besides this, you can imagine the aesthetics are very important to these manufacturers as well. Applications in this industry are floor, wall and ceiling panels as well as the lighting and instrument panels.
  • 39. 37 AFTC SilverTapes are widely used in several areas of transportation. Trains, trams, busses, airplanes, mobile homes, caravans, subway carts, trailers are many of the applications we gather under the umbrella “transportation”. Because of the diversity of material and applications within transportation, AFTC offers their full range of industrial tapes to their customers. Trailer building In the applications of trailers, AFTC SilverTapes are used for the bonding of roof-, wall- and floor panels as well as corner profiles, lighting and reflective plating for the exterior of the trailer. In many cases AFTC customers have decided to switch from rivets and screws to AFTC SilverTape. This switch has significantly improved the speed of their production process and with that their production costs. Besides this obvious aesthetic and cost advantage, AFTC SilverTape has reduced the sound of the vibrating trailer by 40-50%. Applications - Transportation
  • 40. 38 Different models of caravans and mobile homes, in many cases, have the same pre-fab interior or exterior parts. These parts such as full shower or bathroom units, in the past were mainly riveted or glued into the interior. Due to the friction of these vehicles, the rivets would loosen, resulting in vibrating sounds. The application using liquid glues obviously required long drying times. Both these bonding methods can be replaced using our AFTC SilverTape. Other applications in this area of the market are exterior trims, lighting and windows. In the manufacturing of busses liquid adhesives have always had a prominent role. Due to uneven surfaces, welds and high torque this is still the preferred bonding method. However, the quest for improvement of productivity and cost reduction has opened the door for AFTC SilverTape as well. Together with the engineering teams of several leading bus manufacturers AFTC has found some very interesting applications. The hatches for the luggage compartment being an interesting example AFTC SilverTape is now used to bond the aluminium sheet to the steel frame of the hatch. Besides the obvious holding power and increase in production speed, this brings another advantage; the AFTC SilverTape forms a barrier between the two metals preventing bi-metal corrosion. Other SilverTape applications in the manufacturing of busses are logo, emblem, exterior trim, floor- & roof panels and lighting.
  • 41. 39 The applications in the white goods industry can divided into two general areas; assembly of the housing and attachment of exterior parts. Housing The housing of washing machines etc. nowadays is typically powder coated. This very strong finish exposes some challenges concerning the bonding. Powder coatings have a low surface tension and are therefore challenging to bond to. The challenge that has two solutions; bonding before the powder coating process using the AFTC SilverTape 60-Series or bonding after the process using the AFTC SilverTape 64-Series. These SilverTapes have been especially formulated for these purposes and offer great adhesive values for all applications. Instrument panels Exterior parts for ovens, microwaves, refrigerators, dishwashers, washing machines and dryers typically require AFTC SilverTape die-cuts. All AFTC products are offered as die-cuts in any shape or size. For more information about converting solution please see page 47 or contact your AFTC Representative. Applications - Home appliances
  • 42. 40 Road- & commercial signs The two major areas for AFTC SilverTape in this market are without a doubt road signs and commercial signs. Road signs are in most cases made of an aluminium sheet or sandwich panel bonded to a steel frame. In the past, rivets were used to attach the panels to the frames. Because of the two different metals being used and the rivets being pressed through the materials, bi-metal corrosion was very common. Using AFTC SilverTape offers an excellent solution for this by forming a barrier between the frame and the sheet. Besides this, other advantages are an increase in productivity and obvious aesthetic improvements compared to the many visible rivets in the past. Commercial Commercial signs on the other hand have more aesthetic value and are in many cases made of translucent materials such as polycarbonate, PMMA or polyester. The combination of bonding to these materials and the demands of the customers concerning the (in)visibility of the tape has been a challenge. AFTC’s transparent SilverTapes have proven to be an excellent solution. These optically clear tapes are relatively soft and therefore extremely conformable to ensure a good adhesion to the above mentioned polymers. Applications - Signing
  • 43. 41 Tablets, smartphones, desktops, televisions and laptops are getting smaller and thinner with every new release. The screens of these devices however need a strong bond but because of restrictions in dimensions this bonding power needs to be achieved by a relatively small adhesive surface. AFTC SilverTapes used in electronics are the thinnest products in the spectrum. Thickness as thin as 0,15mm are very common in this industry and ensure excellent adhesive values. Besides the screen several other, smaller applications can be found in many of these devices. The mounting of charging sockets, cameras, motherboards etc. are some of the applications to think of. LED lighting has skyrocketed the past years. LED strips or singles LED lights are being manufactured by the millions. The LED strips, used for example in aircraft to show the direction to the nearest exit, are bonded with the AFTC transparent SilverTapes that is applied at the LED manufacturer. Because of the high volume AFTC supplies their transparent tapes on spool rolls as well as slit- and logrolls. For the adhesion of single LED’s our converters can offer die-cuts in any shape or size required by the customer. Applications - Electronics
  • 44. 42 Solar panels AFTC SilverTapes are highly suitable for the construction and placement of solar panels. The panel itself offers many applications as well as the mounting of the panels to frames, walls or rooftops. A solar panel in most cases is constructed of two glass plates in between which the actual solar cells are placed. Using AFTC SilverTape in the same thickness as the cells, protects the cells and the water resistance of the AFTC SilverTape ensures a 100% waterproof construction. For aesthetic reasons these glass to glass bonds are done with AFTC’s transparent SilverTapes. The panels are then bonded to an aluminium frame using the AFTC general purpose SilverTapes. Electric parts Electrical parts like junction boxes are bonded to the back of the panel in most cases using a die-cut of AFTC SilverTape. To keep from corroding, the glass/aluminium panels is then bonded to the steel frames in a field, on a wall or rooftop using the AFTC SilverTape. Applications - Solar panels
  • 46. 44 Application instructions Cleaning To clean your light and medium contaminated substrates, AFTC offers the AFTC SilverClean. Any isopropanol/alcohol solution (IPA) is also acceptable. When cleaning your substrate, a tear free, light colored paper towel is required. Wipe the substrate in one direction using the one cloth method (one cloth with cleaner) or a two cloth method (one cloth with cleaner and one dry cloth to follow) is acceptable if you are short on time. Repeat these steps until your cloth is clean and free of any contaminants. For heavily contaminated substrates, use a cleaning agent such as MEK, Heptan or Acetone. These cleaning agents may leave a residue. which would have to be removed using the IPA cleaner. You can clean your substrates using the one cloth method; one light colored paper towel drenched in cleaner. Or, if you are short on time, use the two cloth method; one light colored paper towel drenched in cleaner, followed by one dry light coloured paper towel. Abrading When bonding to raw aluminum, abrading of the surface is a must. The oils used in the waltzing of the aluminum are pressed into the pores of the material. To remove these oils, that will influence the bond, we recommend using the AFTC SilverPads. These abrasive pads ensure the proper level of abrasion without damaging your substrates. Besides raw aluminum, abrading is a method utilized to help improve your bond. After the abrasion process is completed, remove any residue using an IPA cleaner following the methods mentioned above.
  • 47. 45 Primer The use of a primer is recommended when bonding to some low surface energy substrates. Examples include, different types of polymers, powder coated metals, or porous materials such as wood, cork, stone or concrete. Primers are also used to help speed up your production process. The AFTC SilverTape line can take up to 72 hours to reach its end-strength. The use of a primer ensures the end-strength will be achieved within 20 minutes. AFTC offers two primers; the primer 33 and the primer 101. Determining which one of these primers is suitable for your application ultimately depends on the substrates and environmental influences. Your AFTC technical support will gladly advise you which primer to use. Tape application After the Primer is completely dry, the AFTC Silvertape can be applied on the substrate. Position the AFTC SilverTape on the material and apply light pressure by pushing the thumb over the liner. Make sure that the air between the tape and material is removed.
  • 48. 46 Pressure AFTC SilverTapes are pressure sensitive adhesives. Therefore, a minimum amount of pressure is required on the bond line to ensure the maximum adhesion to your substrates. This pressure should be applied in a rolling fashion. A hand roller or mechanical presser are the preferred methods. The pressure on the bond line must be a minimum of at least 10N/cm². Liner removal To remove the liners from the AFTC SilverTapes we recommend the use of either a knife, scissors or a file brush.
  • 50. 48 Shapes and sizes Because AFTC continues to expand, customers from around the world are requesting AFTC’s SilverTapes by name to fulfil their acrylic foam tape requirements. There are so many diverse applications that require special shapes and unusual sizes, that AFTC sales departments have become inundated with RFQ’s (Request For Quote). AFTC’s solution is to utilize our strong and reliable converter network in order to offer our customers the speed and flexibility they have become accustomed to from AFTC. Jumbo roll Products are produced as jumbo rolls. A Jumbo roll is a large roll where the overall size can vary from 500mm x 165mtr to 900mm x 330mtr. The ultimate width and length will depend on the type of product and most importantly, the total thickness of the product. Jumbo rolls are mostly used in high volume die-cut applications. Log roll A jumbo roll normally will provide up to 10 log rolls. The log roll format is the most widely used configuration by our converters and distributors. Because our converters have extensive converting capabilities, they are able to process AFTC SilverTape to virtually any size required. The standard widths range from 500mm or 900mm, however, some widths will vary depending on the type of product and the total thickness. The standard lengths are normally 16,5mtr or 33mtr. The general rule of thumb is, any tape that has a thickness 1.6mm or greater, the standard length is 16,5 mtr. Any product that is under 1,6mm, the standard length is 33 meters. 66 mtr’s or longer is available upon request.
  • 51. 49 Slit roll AFTC Distributors and Converters, cut the logrolls into the desired width of slit roll before sending it to the end-user. Slit rolls can be produced in virtually any width, ranging from 4mm up to 300 mm in width. Some applications require very precise width, whereas other applications will need wider tapes whereby the tolerances are not as stringent. Choosing proper width is based on a variety of factors, like the bonding strength required, the size of the part but also on other factors like the width of the profile which must be bonded and the type of substrates. Spool roll AFTC is also able to offer our customers yet another processing option for our SilverTapes, spool rolls. Mainly used in the automotive industry, a spool roll is constructed using a traverse winding system to produce one large reel or roll. AFTC can provide spool rolls from 4mm to 25mm with a continuous operating length of 700 mtr to 1200 mtr with limited splices. The maximum length of a spool roll is dependent on the total thickness and width of the tape used. Because of the long and continuous lengths compared to a “pancake roll” there is less variability due to less change over. The net result is that you can run longer and faster improving your profitability. Die-cut AFTC’s end users typically use die cuts. A die-cut is a specific shape or size of our tape and is used to bond either similar or dissimilar materials for a specific application. AFTC works in collaboration with several converters who are specialized in mass production of die cuts. These die-cuts from the AFTC SilverTapes are used in applications in white goods, automotive sensors, automotive spoilers, tablets, mobile phones and many other applications. Liner Liners play a very important role for the processing of acrylic foam tape. Many customers will require a paper liner instead of the standard non – siliconized 130 µm red PE Liner. AFTC does offer the option of a paper liner for all of our products. The 130 µm red PE liner is the standard. A siliconized version of our 130 µm red PE film is available, however, it is used primarily on our LSE series (64 and 96 series) due to the very aggressive nature of the LSE adhesive system. Pull tab AFTC can also offer our customers the option of a pull tab. A pull tab is a small piece affixed to the edge of the die cut piece in order to aid in the removal of the liner. Several automotive customers utilize AFTC pull tabs to help improve speed and efficiency during production. AFTC offers three different kind of pull tabs. The selection of the proper pull tab is dependent from the type of product and liner being used as well as the required adhesive and release values. AFTC recommends using the ET9394 with our AM93 and AM94 series tapes and ET9698 for our AM96 and AM98 series tape. Besides these two plastic pulltabs, AFTC offers a variety of heat bond pulltabs. These aluminum pulltabs are bonded to the liner by a heat source and ensure an extremely high adhesion to the liner.
