Technologies Y-bond Triple Tapes


Y-bond triple tapes

Avery Dennison Y-bond triple tapes are a precombined closure system for incontinence briefs. These tapes provide a durable bond to the brief’s traditional polyethylene film or polypropylene nonwoven backsheet. As the tape construction includes an integrated landing zone, it can be a cost-effective solution for many brands and converters.

Avery Dennison solution

Open adult incontinence briefs are price-sensitive products, since they are usually bought by healthcare institutions that need to provide a lot of healthcare at a low cost. Hence, they need relatively cheap and simple products, that are still able to provide user-friendliness (such as extra-long fingerlifts, so that nurses wearing gloves have a good grip), high performance (the brief and especially the closure system needs to withstand high forces of grown-ups) and the option to reclose the brief to extend the lifetime. As adult incontinence briefs usually don’t have landing zones, the closure tapes need a “built in” landing zone.

Easy to convert, easy to use

Easy-to-convert Y-bond triple tapes are available in both a standard plastic construction and with a nonwoven fastening tape option for a premium comfort, look and feel.

They are also available in a variety of widths to match the needs of a range of diaper or incontinence brief shapes, styles and sizes.  The construction consists of a fastening and a release tape, combined in a Y-bond format. An additional target tape central layer provides an integrated landing zone, colored to provide the end user or caregiver with a visual “target” to ensure an easy, confident reclosure.
