DAAT® Structural adhesive film incorporates the benefits of conventional adhesive material with the performance of structural epoxy adhesive, creating a superior dual-action structural bonding technology that provides greater design flexibility, simplified application, and a superior cured shear adhesion of up to 39.8 Mpa.
DAAT® is available on an application specific basis, and modified to include various characteristics to meet precise design requirements, such as bonding to oiled steel or variations with no tack on one side. This level of versatility within the technology helps provide engineers with greater design flexibility.
Rapid development in adhesive tape technology is challenging the use of traditional joining methods. Our dedication to research and development has enabled Tecman to push boundaries and break new ground within adhesive tape advancements. A key part our recent development is the introduction of Dual Action Adhesive Technology (DAAT®), a structural adhesive film that outperforms many structural liquid adhesives in the same category.
High green strength enables instant adhesion between differential materials and results in simplified and accelerated manufacturing processes. The bonding area of the adhesive tape is precisely defined giving engineers the ability to specify exactly where they need adhesion. In addition, the tape maintains a constant uniform adhesive thickness.
