With the ongoing demand for PPE, manufacturers are being pushed to develop and rapidly produce vast amounts of customised materials to support its diverse performance needs. Manufacturer of adhesive tapes and foams, Duraco, has been supplying manufacturers of PPE with high performing tapes, fasteners, and barrier materials converted into unique shapes and formats.
Unlike traditional fasteners and liquid adhesives, which are messy and take time to use, tapes have proven to make processes more efficient to get PPE products manufactured faster.
Duraco’s foundation of flexible manufacturing and rapid development has produced over millions of feet/pieces of customized bonding solutions for PPE. These solutions include double sided foam tapes, hook and loop fasteners, high bond tapes, polyolefin, and polyurethane foam barrier solutions which are used to provide a secure seal and comfortable wear for the end user.
Duraco is committed to supporting key customers in rapidly supplying PPE to protect frontline and essential workers. Covid-19 may be here for a while, however, Duraco is prepared and ready to step up with adhesive tapes which are used to create essential applications to keep people safe.
