Avery™ Dennison Performance Tapes

The best way to assemble, fasten, bond, attach, or seal and cushion is with pressure sensitive tape adhesive products from Avery Dennison and other PSA manufacturers. For several decades, pressure sensitive adhesives have helped companies worldwide improve product performance and appearance, and increase production efficiency.

To ensure quality and performance, reduce waste, save assembly time, and avoid errors, we use high-performance PSA tapes. These adhesives are replacing mechanical fasteners for many bonding and mounting applications. Our PSAs can be applied to any of our materials. Many types are available including acrylics, rubbers, silicon, and other high performance products. We carry a range from transfer adhesives, supported (paper, polyester carriers, scrim), heat assisted to heat activated as well as permanent and removable.

Packaging Foam

PLI specializes in engineered foam packaging solutions that protect your product during shipping and storage. We will design a custom solution to control shock, vibration distress, abrasion, and electrostatic discharge, all at an affordable price.

PLI's on-site ISTA-certified testing lab enables us to assess the fragility of foam packaging and foam-in-place packaged products and materials. We test vibration tolerances and conduct drop testing of your product to determine relevant stress levels. Our engineers will subsequently analyze the size, weight, fragility, and structural layout of your product and use this information to design the product that best suits your unique needs.

Foam Materials

Choosing the right foam material for your application is crucial to the success of any product. PLI sales engineers can assist you with the correct foam selection and we can fabricate our foams to your specifications. Whatever foam characteristic you require, it's likely PLI can help you produce it through one of the many processes we use, including: heat compression, skiving, die cutting, kiss cutting, slicing, grinding, and molding. We also work with conductive foams and coat or laminate others with materials like Mylar®, fabrics and polyethylene.
