Y-bond mechanical tape closes a diaper in a reliable way and gives the tape a premium, soft feel thanks to the nonwoven fastening tape carrier. The hook area secures closure without the risk of contamination of lotions, oils, talcum powder, etc. The hook area has an excellent performance onto various loop landing zones, while the Y-bond ensures a strong bond of the permanent part onto the diaper ear.
We use only the best hooks, that are not easily damaged nor damage the landing zone, to allow multiple reclosures of a diaper or brief without compromising reliability. The exceptional shear onto various nonwovens guarantees a good bond of the hooks/functional/end-user part of the tape onto the landing zone, while the soft but aggressive hook element ensures better peel performance onto multiple loop landing zones. For mechanical tapes used in adult incontinence briefs, no landing zone is needed, adding to the solution’s cost-efficiency. In addition, good conversion of the tape in the customer’s manufacturing line is ensured by a balanced adhesion of the fastening tape to the release tape.
Our products feature Avery Dennison adhesives that are specially designed and engineered for high performance on a wide range of common personal care substrates.
Easy-to-convert Y-bond mechanical tapes are available in multiple designs and constructions, and in tape widths ranging from 46.4 to 67.5 millimeters.
