Global Markets for Adhesives & Sealants/Joining and Fastening, Perfect Replacement for Mechanical Bolts

The market of adhesive tapes and sealants is replacing mechanical rivets, clips, screws, and bolts due to the number of benefits they provide. The most common and valuable adhesive tapes are high-bond and double-sided tapes. 


If we talk about double-sided tapes, they are super light in weight and easy to apply, which makes it feasible for companies to choose them over mechanical fastening. Such types of tapes replace the need for surface finishing, welding, drilling, and hole spotting, as you have to stick them onto a surface. 


They are suitable for industrial applications, provide faster bonding, can be removed if necessary, are very long-lasting, and contain high strength, which is why people prefer them.


Now talking about the very high bond tapes, they are made from acrylic foam which is very high in strength and elastic in nature, making it easier for people to stick them onto the surface. They are super reliable, for they can hold any surface together. The consistent adhesion and strong bonding make it perfect for companies to prefer it over mechanical fastening.


Sealants, on the other hand, fill gaps between surfaces, preventing dust and water from entering. However, they are not that reliable as they hold much lesser strength but can be much more flexible.


Sealants prevent water leakage by covering the surfaces with their chemical nature. Some types of sealants stick easily at room temperature but require certain efforts to disassemble the material if needed. 


Sealants provide water and air-tight condition, unlike adhesives, which hold the surfaces together. Adhesives can be perfect for bonding purposes as they are very much in demand these days. 


Some pressure-sensitive adhesives do not entirely solidify upon application, so you must do proper research before deciding on your material. 


The different types of sealant include polyurethane which is usually a go-to choice for contractors since they offer excellent resilience to shear forces and abrasion. Another type is Polyisobutylenes which offer improved durability and resists chemical attack on a reasonable level. 


Silicone is also one of the best sealants, with good adhesion and dynamic movement. Another type includes Polysulfide, which is relatively more expensive than the others as it offers excellent flexibility even at UV degradation. The Butyl type can be hard to apply because of its stringier consistency, just like Acrylics, but they are much more suitable for exterior applications. 


Water-based Latex sealant is best for surfaces with small gaps because they can be prone to shrinkage. We are concluding all the types of sealants with a note that they can be perfect applicators in exchange for mechanical bolts and screws. 


Adhesives are compared to mechanical fasteners in today's industry mainly because of their light-in-weight nature.
