Shot Blast Tape

 

We are delighted to be involved with a leading expert firm providing a range of highly specialist welding identification and coating services to companies such as BP.  We have been consulting with them on a particular shot blast tape to perform in what can only be described as an F1 operation of preparing high specialist and controlled pipe work for oil and gas exploration. Our tape is particularly well suited. By applying 2 layers of our specialist tape it not only masks and protects the areas not to be blasted but it removes clean after use. Everyone has been delighted with the overall benefits of using this tape and we look forward to growing our working relationship in other possible industrial product solutions including Abrasives and Mykal Cleaning Solutions.

MYKAL Graffiti Remover Wipes

We have recently had some success with a large outdoor media company using our MYKAL Graffiti Remover Wipes. Although an unusual product for us to promote we see this being unique as it is so effective on a wide range of surfaces and its applications are vast, including the transport industry and public environments.

 

Designed for use on porous and non-porous surfaces such as brickwork, shutters, bus shelters, advertising hoardings, washroom surfaces and rolling stock, these wipes effectively remove inks, paints and graffiti. MYKAL Graffiti Remover wipes are non-toxic and are successfully replacing hazardous and ozone depleting solvents.

J.I.T. Tape Conversion

An existing plastics manufacturing customer asked us about the possibility of converting our ultra-high bond sheets into 290mm diameter discs. This product has been supplied to this customer in sheet form for many years and we were delighted to be able to assist in supplying these as converted discs. We were able to produce the discs by using a plotter rather than a rotary tool, which allowed less wastage between each part and the ability to supply as individual parts with a liner on both sides.

 

If you have any converted parts requirements you would like us to help with, please give us a call on 01698 748290.

ESD Polyimide

A large electronics company approached us for ESD (static dissipative) Kapton Polyimide Tape for masking a printed circuit board in a critical application for a large defence company as static build up on conventional tape can cause damage to the circuits and ultimately failures.

WINDOW APPLICATION – HIGH BOND TAPE

We recently supplied a leading construction company with a high bond tape suitable for bonding glass to phenolic board. This tape was used on the new Fujifilm Site.

Single Part Adhesive - Suitable for Outdoor Advertising Shelters

 

Following on from our success in sourcing a suitable adhesive for the Liverpool One contract, a customer contacted us looking for an appropriate product for outdoor advertising shelters. The substrates being bonded were glass to a painted stainless steel frame, however on this occasion the adhesive had to be clear. We were able to offer a clear single part adhesive, which was strong enough to bond both substrates, yet suitable to meet the COSH requirements stipulated.

Initial trials were successful and our customer is now using the product on installations.

If you would like any further information with regards to the products used, or, have any high bond applications you would like to discuss, please do not hesitate to contact us on 01698 748290.

3M Scotchweld Cyanoacrylate Adhesive - Guinness World Record

 

It's amazing the things that can be achieved with adhesives. Take for instance 3M Scotchweld Cyanoacrylate Adhesive, this glue holds the world record for lifting a forklift truck that weighs a whopping 8.1 metric tons!! 

In order to break this Guinness World Record, a 2 part steel cylinder, is glued together using 3M Scotchweld Instant Adhesive, it is left to set for 4 hours before the team attach the cylinders to the forklift truck and begin the lift, when the required height of 1 metre is reached, the clock begins and when the hour mark is reached a new World Record is set.

How amazing is this; and you don't have to take our word for it, have a look at the Youtube clip below to see for yourselves:

3M Innovation sets a Guinness World Record

If you have any demanding applications you would like our help with, we would be delighted to hear from you, please give us a call on 01698 748290.

Aircraft approved D/S Polyimide Tape

 

We recently supplied a leading aircraft manufacturer with our Double Sided Polyimide Tape to bond two specialist materials together. This product was selected due to its mechanical properties and high temperature performance.

Having been thoroughly tested for bond strength and flame retardancy it was found that our Double Sided Polyimide Tape out performed anything trialled before. Our tape has now been specified for use and is currently undergoing trial for further possible applications.

This product is available to purchase via our online store, Double Sided Polyimide Tape

We specialise in technical tapes and products for demanding applications and welcome such enquiries. If you would like to discuss in more detail, please do give us a call on 01698 748290.

Problem Solving - Identification/Marking

We were asked by a leading global logistics company to help them solve issues they were having with their separator cards for mailing machines. They were looking for a robust card that wouldn’t be damaged by the rubber belts feeding the mail, but the material had to be flexible. After meeting with the customer, and seeing their current processes, we suggested a durable plastic material, and a suitable over-laminated bar code label adhered to one side.

With the customers agreement we developed a separator card custom-made to their specific needs. The card had to have a label which triggered the magnet and allowed the computer to read the bar code. We developed artwork for a specific bar code label to suit their requirements. This label was then stuck onto our plastic material, using an aggressive adhesive, and over-laminated to protect it long-term. The separator cards were trialled, and worked very well on the customer’s high speed sorting lines.

Should you have any similar identification/marking enquiries, please do not hesitate to contact us on 01698 748290.

Removing Light Scratches from Acrylic Polymer Sinks.

We were recently asked by a large leading global manufacturer of acrylic polymer sinks to help them solve an issue of removing light scratches and scores without the need to use harsh abrasives. Having trialled a range of industrial cleaning solutions, applied with a light sponge MYKAL SB4 biodegradable safe solvent produced the best results.

This product is also suitable for use on Corian, the brand name for a solid surface material created by DuPont. It is composed of acrylic polymer and alumina trihydrate (ATH). Its primary use is in kitchen countertops, bathroom vanity tops and wall cladding in showers. 

Nicks and scratches can be buffed out with a 3M Scotch-Brite / Hermes Webrax Pads or FineNet Abrasive Discs on an orbital pad.
