Adhesive tape is a tool that we often use in our daily lives. The prospect of the tape market is analyzed below.
The tape industry is a technology-based industry that continues the ancient fine chemical technology and gradually implements technological transformation. This type of product is extended from the medical tape, the originator of the tape, and is divided into packaging series tape, label paper series tape, special tape, and resistant tape. There are six series of high-temperature tapes and fashionable computer inkjet tapes. Its product application areas cover a wide range, from basic food, medicine, sanitary materials, beauty and health care products, Wujiao supplies, cultural and educational supplies, office equipment, photographic equipment, advertising, printing, papermaking, shoemaking, and textiles. It is widely used in industries such as electronics, motors, communication equipment, petroleum industry, automobile industry, shipbuilding industry and aerospace industry. Representative tape products in various industries such as the daily use of BOPP transparent packaging tape, PVC electrical insulation tape, correction tape for cultural, educational and office supplies (substitute for correction fluid), computer printing inkjet paper and visible advertising signs PVC instant sticker series tape , Bus PVC body sticker tape, computer inkjet advertising consumables, light box advertising back torch series products, highway signs (provincial and municipal highways) reflective film glass bead tape, and behind the products hidden in the technology industry such as electronic components, semiconductors , Printed circuit board, computer peripheral manufacturing high temperature resistant Mylar tape, high temperature resistant PET composite tape, high temperature resistant acetate cloth series tape, high temperature resistant crepe paper series tape, high temperature resistant glass fiber cloth tape, PTFE glass fiber Cloth, and fashionable digital technology waterproof high-gloss photo paper series products. According to incomplete statistics, the current domestic demand for various tapes is about to exceed 100 billion yuan, and the ratio of the country’s total production value can be regarded as a relatively prominent industry or product. The only pity is that this industry is often neglected, and the training and development of its professional technology is also lacking in seriousness, resulting in the industrial structure being maintained at only low-grade and fiercely competitive product development, and also resulting in high-tech and high-efficiency tape products. Monopolized by foreign companies or imported products!
In fact, the existence of this status quo is a common problem facing the world. The main factor is because it belongs to a relatively partial and unique proprietary technology in the field of fine chemical technology. If it is not experienced in the substantial R&D and production experience of this professional technical product, it is indeed difficult to realize the permutation and combination technology of the product structure. The production and processing technology gap of mature products will be so far away! Especially in the “special tape and high temperature series tape”, the combined technology of pressure sensitive adhesive and media surface treatment, although the hidden technical content is so simple, but in Before the technology is disclosed, it is definitely a profound and mysterious technology that is difficult to explore! Therefore, the development of the domestic tape market can only trend toward the development of universal tape products or low-priced products.
As for the development of special tape and high temperature resistant series of tape product technology in China and the existing technical obstacles, the most important thing is that it is limited to the application of the medium, the surface treatment of the medium and the formulation development technology of the high temperature resistant series of adhesives. It is difficult to break through, resulting in nearly 300 Almost 80% of the product market of 100 million yuan (RMB/year) is handed over to foreign-funded enterprises or imported products, such as glass bead reflective film tape, non-media double-sided tape, single-sided foam tape (electronic components, communication equipment and automotive industry) (Special), acrylic foam double-sided tape, glass fiber cloth tape, acetate fiber cloth tape, high temperature crepe paper tape, polyimide tape, printed circuit board composite and other tape products are “almost domestic blank” products. At this moment, we should use the advantages of the network to comprehensively search for the supply channels or manufacturers of various special media (such as special films, crepe paper, acetate cloth, acrylic foam, electronic cross-linked foam, conductive cloth, and insulating metal foil). Therefore, carefully analyze and test the surface treatment technology of the medium, which should belong to the caulking or primer treatment process, and then apply adaptive caulking agent, primer, release agent or composite adhesive step by step for medium treatment measures. Finally, according to the requirements of the product’s “adhesive physical properties or characteristics” indicators, the qualified adhesives are screened and prepared for permutation and combination to become special tapes or high-temperature resistant tape products.
