Product Description

FindTape V2A Volara Type 2A Crosslinked Polyolefin Polyethylene Foam Tape is a closed-celled, irradiation cross-linked polyolefin foam, available in roll and strip form. This low-density foam tape is coated on one side with a high-performance, quick stick, rubber-based adhesive for mounting or positioning. It offers aesthetic appeal as well as an outstanding range of performance characteristics. Its smooth surface, consistent density, and uniform gauge offer superior physical properties.

Volara foams are resistant to most chemicals and their low water absorption and vapor transmission rate make them a versatile, dependable foam solution. This polyolefin foam reaches to virtually all markets such as transportation, general industrial, industrial tape, recreation & leisure, and tape & medical. Nonabrasive, flexible Volara Polyethylene Foam can also serve as a protective, archival-quality liner for display cases, drawers, shelves and storage boxes.

The general-purpose LDPE is ideal for industrial applications such as gap filler and industrial gaskets. The V2A Volara type is perfect to use in the fixture and construction of face mask shields, hard hats, and eye protection. Since the foam is closed-cell, it has excellent weather and chemical resistance which allows for better washing and sanitization. A good combination of flexibility and conformability with strength and wear resistance. Used in applications requiring positive seals on irregular surfaces or when flexibility and conformability to seal tight radius curves are critical considerations.

Question & Answers

User Reviews

Made in the USA
hot melt rubber (synthetic)
Offers the widest range of application flexibility available. Exhibits excellent processing performance whether manually or automatically applied. Has superior tensile strength, adhesion properties and holding force which ensures consistent, reliable seals. Hot melt adhesive will bond faster to a surface which is referred to as quick-grab or quick-stick. It typically has higher tack (will feel stickier to the touch), but is also softer. It has lower heat resistance, shear resistance, and sometimes UV resistance than an acrylic adhesive. NOTE: it is called hot melt because the adhesive is applied hot by the manufacturer and then hardens as it cools (you do not need to apply heat to the tape yourself).
natural rubber
Properties are similar to that of hot melt rubber, but natural rubber often holds where other adhesives won't (recycled fibers, dust, cold, heat and heavy loads). It provides good overall adhesion and moisture resistance.
Offer excellent performance, especially for applications in temperatures less than 40°F and greater then 120°F. It provides excellent clarity, has high shear strength, is usually more permanent/durable even when exposed to moisture, and it ages well over extended periods in fluorescent and sunlight. Since it remains clear for the life of the application and does not yellow over time it is ideal for applications such as sealing white cartons. While it has good initial adhesion it does take 24-48 hours to cure and to achieve its maximum bond strength (has gradual adhesion buildup). Another difference between hot melt rubber and acrylic adhesive is if you fold tape over making the two adhesive sides touch the acrylic adhesive will remain attached to the carrier (e.g. paper, film) while a hot melt adhesive will stick to itself and pull off of the carrier. It is the best choice for clarity, UV resistance and aging characteristics.
Is great for extreme temperature applications since silicone adhesive can work in continuous operating temperatures from -100°F to 500°F. They also exhibit good chemical resistance, retain electrical properties, and remove cleanly with little or no residue.
zinc oxide
Zinc oxide based adhesive formula is a skin-friendly adhesive which is commonly used on sports medicine tapes.
Thickness, AKA caliper or gauge, refers to the distance from one surface of a tape backing, or adhesive, to the other.
1 mil = 1/1000 of an inch
Examples: 1/16 inch = 62.5 mils; 1/32 inch = 31.25 mils
The cut level indicates how many grams of cutting load a glove can withstand from a sharp blade before being penetrated.
Lower gauge gloves are heavier - have thicker construction, fewer stiches knitted per inch and offer less dexterity.
Higher gauge gloves are lighter - have thinner/finer construction, more stitches knitted per inch and offer more dexterity.
Gloves offered typically runs from 7 to 18 (12 and 13 are in the middle of the scale).
