Technologies F-bond Mechanical Tapes


F-bond mechanical tapes

Avery Dennison F-bond mechanical tapes are a cost-effective solution that provide excellent performance on a wide variety of loop-based landing zones.

A super flexible yet strong solution for a soft and reliable closure system.

Answering the call of the market

There is a push from the market to decrease costs. In addition, alternative adhesion options to glue have been developed, like pressure welding. Moreover, the need for a big adhesive layer on the fastening tape to keep the tape tabs in place while the diaper is in the conversion line and in the packaging is a thing of the past. This all offers the possibility to eliminate the release tape and create a simpler construction, comprising only a fastening tape and a hook area.

F-mechanical tapes

Avery Dennison F-mechanical tapes are a one-layer diaper closure construction based on a hook-and-loop system (mechanical). It comprises one soft nonwoven fastening tape, with adhesive coated on the permanent part of the tape, one single or a multilane hook lane and a fingerlift area. 

F-mechanical tapes are used as closure systems for open tab baby diapers. They are usually used in combination with a loop-landing zone, or directly onto a soft nonwoven landing zone. It offers excellent performance of the hook element on various loop materials, from a very simple tape construction – which makes the product efficient to produce and a cost efficient, yet modern closure solution for the customer.

Ensure a strong bond

Complexity of conversion in the diaper manufacturing line moves to the customer. So, they need to have capabilities to ensure strong bond (pressure welding). F-bond is super flexible yet has strong hook lanes, for a soft closure system that follows the shape of a baby’s body. F-bond mechanical tape is designed to help converters who have pressure welding capabilities ensure a strong bond onto the diaper’s back ear.

Customization options include carrier color, hook type and width, and fingerlift options. Avery Dennison offers technical assistance to improve conversion.
