- Chemical resistance
For instance, ECHOtape’s foil tapes are engineered with an aggressive, long lasting, pressure-sensitive adhesive that demonstrates superior bonding when exposed to both sub-zero and elevated temperature as well as high humidity, making them the ideal choice for both construction and in an excellent range of Foil Tape.
Foil Tapes Market Overview
Foil tapes are metal-backed tapes that are mainly used in industries to withstand heavy load and enable heavy and specialized machines to work efficiently. Due to increase in adoption of automated technology, the global foil tapes market has witnessed a rise in demand, by industrialists.
In addition, foil tapes also enable efficient cooling and heating, which involves thermal conduction and heat-light reflection over the surface. The high preference for foil tapes can be attributed to their excellent resistance towards high humidity and extreme conditions, which includes exposure to UV light, high temperatures, and chemicals.
Added to that, foil tapes are highly malleable and have rugged characteristics, which makes them an ideal choice for heavy usage. Foil tapes find application in metal finishing, appliance, aerospace and automotive industries. Foil tapes are primarily used for shielding, grounding and sealing applications. Overall, the foil tapes market is anticipated to witness significant growth, over the forecast period.
