Heat affect on sealing tape adhesive strength

  1. Aug 12, 2015 #1
    There's a reel of material which has splices connected by regular transparent sealing tape. The bobbin has to be heated for manufacturing. Do you think the heat of up to ~60C degrees could have an affect on tape adhesives?

    "Regular" isn't a terribly specific term. A temperature of 60 C can turn adhesives dry, brittle, gummy, or any combination of the above plus other effects. Without more detail, you're faced with doing the actual time at T measurements yourself.
