Case Study - Flying Splices in Varying Environments

Customer Need

A building materials manufacturer reached out to us when they began experiencing failures with a tape that they were using for a flying splice application on their fiberglass insulation production line. The tape needed to withstand extreme temperatures, both hot and cold.

The Budnick Solution

Multiple products were tested, and a double coated polyester acrylic tape proved to perform just as well in the warmer months as it did during winter months.The tape has temperature resistant capabilities, along with permanent bonding capabilities. The tape’s shear acrylic adhesive gives it quick-stick properties ideal for splicing applications. 

To better support the splice, we supplied the customer with a die-cut tab. This enhancement helps prevent stoppages on the production line, allowing production workers to quickly remove the liner.
