With over half a century of experience and ISO 9001 certification, Stokvis Tapes is a reliable self-adhesive tape partner. To be able to, we are not only supported by our own laboratory in the Netherlands, but also by laboratories in several other locations worldwide.
Our Knowledge Center offers a unique service. Our lab technicians can quickly and accurately test the tape features on your own material. We can simulate all kinds of conditions with our climate cabinets and other test equipment. This gives us, for example, insight of how the tape reacts when exposed to UV rays. In this way, we can determine whether the tape is UV resistant. The same applies for many other tape properties, such as adhesion or chemical and temperature resistance. Tapes must be able to perform under various conditions. This is how Stokvis Tapes tests if the self-adhesive tape is a reliable bond for your unique application.
For the right self-adhesive tape selection we perform tests on the following:
Substrate / surface tension
Force / load
Resistance to various environmental conditions e.g. chemicals, electricity or UV rays
Reliability in the laboratory
Stokvis Tapes tests tapes under all kinds of conditions. For example, does your self-adhesive tape needs to be UV resistant but also needs to perform in freezing temperatures? We’re able to test under these circumstances. However, since our tests are performed under laboratory conditions, you will also have to test in practice. We recommend that you also test the tapes under these conditions in practice and take the necessary time for this. After all, you are the specialist in your field. In this way, we can see whether the tapes perform in practice just as well as in the laboratory. Together, we will work out the best reliable solution for you.
