Highly reactive adhesive polymers from the company can be crosslinked with UV radiation, and subsequently expanded into low density foamed adhesive
And, for applications where holdout on porous substrates or mileage is critical, our AEROBOND foamed adhesive
system is right for you.
PSA's thicker than about 0.25 millimeter typically have a foam core or contain a foamed adhesive
. These foam tapes are generally used where there may be inconsistencies in the materials that are being bonded, as the foam fills in the gaps.

National Starch presented what it calls the Aerobond system for creating a foamed adhesive. The company has offered the system since 1999 for the wood industry.
The foamed adhesive then can be directly applied to the substrate via a roll coater or glue spreader.
However, enough of the foamed adhesive stays above the porous surface to create a strong bond.

The standard assembly method is to use glue printers and hot melt adhesives, or robotics and air-sets, or foamed adhesives
. It is highly likely with each of these methods that the cost of assembly will be as high as 50% of the cost of the total assembled EPS pattern.
