Stick with It: A Guide to Adhesive Transfer Tapes

Adhesive transfer tapes are a versatile and convenient solution for bonding and laminating applications. They offer a quick and easy way to achieve a reliable bond with minimal mess or cleanup. In this post, we will explore the features and benefits of adhesive transfer tapes, as well as some common applications.

Adhesive transfer tape

How They Work

Adhesive transfer tapes consist of a pressure-sensitive adhesive pre-applied to a release liner. The adhesive is activated when pressure is applied to the tape, and the liner is peeled off to expose the adhesive. The tape is then pressed onto the surface to be bonded, providing an almost instantaneous grab.

Benefits of Adhesive Transfer Tapes

One of the main advantages of adhesive transfer tapes is their ease of use. They can be easily applied by hand or using automated pick-and-place robotic application methods, making them ideal for die-cutting. They also provide good conformability and adhesive wet-out on the surface, ensuring a strong bond.

Adhesive transfer tapes also offer a very thin bond line, which is not visible once applied. This makes them ideal for applications where appearance is important. In addition, some transfer tapes can be repositioned and lifted without leaving any adhesive residue on the surface.


Adhesive transfer tapes are used in a variety of bonding and laminating applications. They are commonly used for lightweight materials such as gaskets, graphics, and trim. They can also be used for mounting signs, displays, and other promotional materials.

Adhesive transfer tapes are also used in the electronics industry for bonding components and for attaching foam and other materials to electronic devices. They are often used in automotive applications for bonding trim and emblems.


Adhesive transfer tapes offer a quick, convenient, and reliable way to bond and laminate a variety of materials. Their ease of use and versatility make them a popular choice for many industries. Whether you're looking to bond gaskets, graphics, or trim, adhesive transfer tapes are definitely worth considering.
