Structural Acrylic Pressure Sensitive Adhesive Taping

The Center for Adhesive and Sealant Science at Virginia Tech is testing and evaluating the use of pressure sensitive tapes for use in residential structural systems. Thus far, research has modeled and tested the performance of tapes for the construction of wall panels, with future plans to expand the program to other applications.

Scientists are currently developing a methodology for tape applications on construction sites. The tapes are suitable for many substrates and can be hand applied without the use of special equipment. The thickness of the adhesive typically ranges from 5 to 55 mils and the tape widths can range from ½" to almost 1'. This provides enough coating area to establish secure bonds on uneven or irregular surfaces. Estimates of connection longevity are not readily available at this time. Pressure-sensitive tapes for structural applications offer potential production benefits by reducing the number of required metal connections (screws, nails, ties, etc) necessary to retain structural integrity.
