Adhesive Tapes & Speciality Materials

Our unique combination of coating capabilities and innovative technical teams drives the development of custom, multi-functional materials for specific end uses.


Adhesive Tapes & Speciality Materials

    High Performance Labelstock

  • Polyester and polypropylene-based materials with custom topcoats and adhesives that have exceptional durability, performance and print quality.
  • Typically used for marking and identification labels
  • UL- and cUL-approved materials
  • Additional information can be printed using thermal transfer (POD) technology

    High Temperature Materials

  • Polyimide-based materials with unique topcoats that have high temperature resistance and excellent print quality, designed for use in printed circuit board assembly.
  • Designed to withstand harsh environments
  • Abrasion, heat and chemical resistance
  • Suitable for top and bottom-side PCB assembly, where tracking is required throughout the manufacturing process

    Security Application Materials

  • Polyester-based materials embedded with overt, semi-covert and covert security features.
  • Labelstock includes tamper-evident features of voiding and destructibility
  • Used in box seals and other secure packaging applications
  • Embedded features allow brand owners to identifity counterfeit goods, and products that have been tampered with

    Adhesive Tapes

  • Double-sided protective and transfer tapes utilising acrylic, rubber and silicone adhesives.
  • Used for fabrication and protection within electronic devices
  • Applications include lamination, bonding, positioning, rework and protection
  • Designed to create multi-layer constructions that address specific customer requirements

    Thermal Tapes & Pads

  • CCL Olympic acrylate-based thermally conductive materials are used to provide a preferential heat transfer path away from heat generating components.
  • The very soft acrylic composition allows a low load during compression, and it provides a tacky surface for optimal contact to any substrate.
  • The non-silicone based products are ideal for automotive and electronic applications.
  • Can be customized to optimize softness, tack and thermal conductivity
