Technologies Y-bond Duo Tapes


Y-bond duo tapes

Avery Dennison Y-bond duo tapes are a precombined construction for diaper and personal care products. They are frequently used with X-shaped diapers made of polyethylene filmic or nonwoven backsheets, and with a film- or tape-based landing zone. It offers a two-layer closure system used in combination with frontal films to form a repositionable, pressure-sensitive adhesive-based closure solution. Usually, Y-bond duo tapes come with a filmic fastening and release tape, but there are also duo tapes with a nonwoven fastening tape.

Duo tape offers a two-layer closure system for strong and permanent bonding as well as refastening.

A durable solution

Adhesive diaper closure systems are the traditional closure systems for diapers. They are a cost-efficient solution and are mainly used nowadays in emerging markets, where diaper prices are very sensitive. They are used in combination with a release-coated landing zone (either frontal film or frontal tape). Usually, the diaper shapes are traditional, X-shaped diapers with a polypropylene or polyethylene backsheet. Y-bond duo tape is designed for easy converting, and offers a durable solution for diaper brands.

The construction of Y-bond duo tape consists of both a fastening tape and a release tape. The fastening tape includes a fingerlift area that can be straight or cut in a wave, and a colored fingerlift strip. It also features a specially designed and engineered Avery Dennison adhesive. It provides a strong and permanent bond of the closure system onto the diaper's back ear, and a refastenable bond onto most common filmic landing zone materials.

The Y-bond serves two market needs. It offers a secure bond of the permanent part of the tape onto the back ear (otherwise, the diaper is useless), as the Y-bond ensures a good “division” of the forces on the diaper ear, and a secure bond between fastening and release tape. Secondly, there is a clear indication of the folding position, and a natural folding at the Y-bond, which makes it easy to convert.
