Advantages of adhesive tapes articulated with authority at FAST Live

For constructing commercial trailers, one increasingly popular solution to bodybuilding productivity challenges is the use of modern high-performance double-sided adhesive tapes. According to FAST Live exhibitor tesa, bonding with tape offers several advantages in comparison to the use of mechanical fasteners and liquid adhesives.

Tapes are quick, quiet and clean to apply, says tesa, with minimal waste, simple surface preparation and requiring no post-assembly clean up. Further, unlike liquid adhesives, tapes can provide almost immediate handling strength, reduced cycle times and simplified manufacturing sequences. tesa also states that unlike mechanical fasteners, tapes don’t require the drilling of hundreds of time and energy consuming holes either.

Tapes can also do something that many alternative methods cannot: bond and seal in a single process. Moreover, tapes are also invisible once applied says tesa, providing aesthetic benefits together with smooth interior and exterior surfaces that are easy to clean and keep clean. Visitors to the tesa stand at FAST Live can discuss the role of tapes in advanced, lightweight trailer construction techniques, and much more, at FAST Live on March 12th.

FAST Live is the UK's only dedicated fastening, joining and assembly focused exhibition, and offers visitors a unique opportunity to meet and talk with some of the most experienced fastening, bonding and assembly application specialists.

Entry to FAST Live is free of charge by pre-registration. The event takes place at the acclaimed British Motor Museum on 12th March: the venue is located at Gaydon, adjacent to the Aston Martin and JLR plants south of Warwick and just 1 minute from the M40. There is abundant free parking, and for visitors arriving before 1030, a free bacon roll and brew too. Tea and coffee are provided free of charge all day at the event, and pre-registered exhibition visitors can also visit the superb Museum, with almost 300 fascinating cars on show, free of charge too (standard adult entry fee otherwise is £14.50).
