ADDISON, IL, November 13, 2008 — Pres-On®, a leading supplier of adhesive-backed industrial products, today introduced its PHB Series of high-bond acrylic foam tapes that deliver the necessary strength to replace spot welds, screws, mechanical fasteners, and rivets in a wide variety of products, resulting in sleeker designs and lower assembly costs.
Available in black, white and clear, the double-coated tapes provide a superior bond between many different substrates, especially low surface energy powder coated paints, metals and plastics. The 100% closed cell acrylic foam creates a durable shield as it bonds and compensates for differential thermal expansion or contractions, making for a final product that is lighter, quieter and more efficient.
PHB tapes eliminate nuisance problems associated with welding and rivets during the attachment of auto trim, skin to frame assembly, or the manufacturing of furniture, appliances or hundreds of other commercial and industrial products. In addition, because it exhibits outstanding weathering properties, it can be used with confidence in the fabrication of doors and windows.
Headquartered in Bolingbrook, Illinois, Pres-On is an innovative manufacturer of custom adhesive coatings, gaskets, and laminations serving a wide-range of major industrial markets. Founded in 1949, Pres-On has been family-owned and operated for over 60 years.
