Die Cut Solutions to Bond to Low Surface Energy Materials

Getting things to stick to other things and stay stuck – it’s been a challenge for product designers and engineers as long as adhesives have been a thing, and making matters worse is the proliferation of materials like thermoplastics and advanced composites. You see, while these materials have their advantages - flexibility, durability, moisture, heat, and solvent resistance – thanks to a property called low surface energy (LSE) they’re notoriously difficult to stick to. This paper discusses the relationship between surface energy and adhesion before introducing a few specialty tapes and adhesives designed specifically to help turn LSE problems into sticky solutions.
