Partel described Acraline Roll as an innovative response to increased demands for adhesive solutions, and as an alternative to conventional air sealing technologies such as liquid adhesive.
“It is a unique compound, because it combines the advantages of liquid adhesives and adhesive tapes, resulting in a smart bonding approach with outstanding immediate adhesion properties,” said Hugh Whiriskey, technical director of Partel, who was involved in the R&D process.
The roll adhesive — for sealing of internal and external membranes — forms a complete, tested system in accordance with Part L and DIN 4108-11. Partel said that Acraline Roll is set apart by its functionality: “It’s quick and easy to apply directly from the roll, with the simple handling of a pressure-sensitive adhesive, ensuring permanent elastic airtight connections, without any drying time needed.”
Ideal for a very wide range of substrates, the roll sealing tape adheres to surfaces with residual moisture and can be processed even at temperatures as low as -20 C. Both during processing and after application, Acraline Roll offers maximum adhesion accuracy thanks to its high-performance translucent acrylic adhesive, engineered to achieve optimum peel, tack and longterm strength.
Partel said that the product is a 100 per cent solvent-free adhesive, with outstanding water and temperature resistance. That makes it a reliable solution for durable airtight connections. The Acraline Roll adhesive was introduced to Ireland in March and is now available in the UK, US, and mainland Europe.
