Adhesive Tapes for Designers and Engineers
What you'll learn
- Adhesive tape engineering
Thank you for visiting the Tape Tools "Adhesive Tapes for Designers and Engineers" Course!
For engineering beginners and those in need of a refresher, please join in in exploring the world of adhesive tapes. From the basics of adhesive formulation to the complex world of specialty products, we'll cover the basics of several key design areas pertaining to tape.
We distill these every day and ubiquitous products down to simple and actionable knowledge areas that help designers, engineers, and everyday consumers understand just what an adhesive tape is, and how it ends up in your garage, department store, office cubicle, or airplane.
What adhesive tapes are
Fundamentals of what an "adhesive tape" technically is.
When to consider adhesive tapes in your design process
Considerations include cost, ease of assembly, and performance requirements
The types of adhesive chemical formulations
Silicone, Acrylic, Rubber (the most common adhesives in industry)
The types of physical constructions of adhesives tapes
Single coated, double coated, and transfer tapes
Some of the more common "specialty adhesive tapes" used in industry
Including foam tapes, electrically conductive tapes, thermally conductive tapes, and heat activated tapes
A brief overview of adhesive tapes in the world of medical skin contact.
How medical tapes differ from most other tapes
How to select a medical tape based on demographic, wear-time, device weight, etc
Who this course is for:
- Engineering students
- Design Engineers
- Mechanical Engineers
Almost a decade of experience in the world of industrial manufacturing. I specialize in the design of adhesive tape solutions for medical, electronics, automotive, and other industries. Adhesive tapes are widely used in processes and products that most of us are familiar with, and in some placed that might surprise us. I help designers and engineers discover the best products to use for their specific applications - and I see lots of adhesive tapes!
