Electronics and household appliances

Present in many everyday objects, electronic elements are highly technical components that use adhesive for its insulating or waterproofing qualities.

ADHESIVE LABEL IN ELECTRONICS

From smartphones to home automation to cars, electronic components are present in almost all everyday objects. To ensure that the electronic parts of a device function optimally, they must be perfectly preserved.

Resistant, discreet, waterproofing, insulating… the adhesive transformed by Alsace Techniques Etiquetage, with extremely precise cuts, offers many technical advantages that perfectly meet the needs of the electronics industry and guarantee total system integrity. To isolate components from each other and thus avoid overheating, to glue an electronics board, to fix a screen or to protect it, adhesive remains the most efficient solution.

Finally, adhesive can also protect a device from fraud or disassembly with tamper-evident labels, thus preserving the manufacturer’s warranty and the contractual commitment of the brand.

USES OF ADHESIVE IN ELECTRONICS

Adhesive has many functions in electronic devices. It can be used to attach two components, provide electromagnetic or thermal shielding or protect surfaces such as smartphone and tablet screens.

Automotive, aeronautics, household appliances, home automation, medical equipment, the adhesive solution concerns all markets using electronic components.

The adhesive label can be used at different stages of a product. It can be used at the design stage, addressing issues of electrical insulation, electrical conductivity or heat dissipation. It can also be attached afterwards, to ensure the correct logistical delivery of the final product or its preservation, with anti-fraud adhesive solutions.

The adhesive solution, which can be customised and made to measure, is the most suitable device for challenges associated with the design of electronic components.

ADHESIVE IN CONSUMER GOODS

Furniture and household appliances are now renewable consumer goods. The technical and aesthetic qualities of adhesive have led to its use in the design and production of these products.

Alsace Techniques Etiquetage‘s custom-cuts parts for the fixing, insulation, conductivity or protection of certain appliances or furniture elements.

Other adhesive solutions such as as security labels, warning or anti-fraud labels, prevent disassembly or defects, like tamper-evident labels or holograms.

APPLICATION EXAMPLES...

Construction

With materials that are sometimes rough and often subjected to weather, labelling requirements for construction are very specific. ATE offers its tools and know-how to the construction industry.

ADHESIVE IN THE BUILDING INDUSTRY

New construction techniques, in addition to recent regulations, are leading construction professionals to use adhesive elements more and more frequently.

For example, adhesive tape is widely used in the building of timber-frame houses as their installation avoids the creation of gaps in the waterproofing. Unlike screws or staples, adhesive tapes maintain a continuous fixing and sealing.

With regard to insulation, new thermal regulations such as RT 2020 require better energy performance from buildings and therefore the use of additional insulation techniques.

Adhesive is therefore ideal for perfecting the insulation of a building. Another advantage is the speed of installation. Adhesive does not require any drying time and therefore saves precious time on the building site.

USES OF ADHESIVE TAPE IN THE BUILDING INDUSTRY

Because of their intrinsic characteristics, adhesive tapes have many advantages and are therefore widely used in the construction sector.

They can be used to join insulation panels, along with waterproofing foam, to fix floor coverings or to fix skirting boards or wood planks.

Depending on the type of surface, the adhesive has a certain weight to ensure maximum adhesion (rough walls, concrete, etc.). Its quick and easy application provides a clean and efficient result. The adhesive tape used in the construction industry is also solvent and odour free, for greater environmental friendliness and comfort in the home.

Made-to-measure, resistant and easy to use, the adhesive proposed by Alsace Technique Etiquetage meets all the constraints of the building industry.

LABELS FOR THE CONSTRUCTION INDUSTRY

Adhesives used in the construction industry must be able to withstand extreme conditions such as bad weather and/or physical forces. They meet specific needs and have distinct applications.

For example, extreme strength bonding adhesives are designed to withstand enormous pressure, cleaning agents, frost or UV light. They can even be applied to rusty surfaces.

The bonding must also remain effective on materials specific to the construction industry, such as labels on wood or concrete. These materials must withstand the hazards of outdoor storage (dust, rain, wind, etc.).

ADHESIVES IN HOME AUTOMATION

Home automation is a rapidly expanding market. Internet connected devices are now widely used in homes. Here again, custom-made adhesives are present. They are used in the design of these new intelligent devices..

Whether it is automated equipment relating to air conditioning, heating, ventilation, lighting or even doors and sashes, Alsace Techniques Etiquetage designs adhesive solutions adapted to all home automation design needs.

APPLICATION EXAMPLES...

Seals, thermal insulation, soundproofing, electrical insulation, electrical conduction, fixing adhesives.

ATE, the construction adhesive.

Communication

As the company's voice, communication allows products, services and values to be presented. ATE offers you its adhesive solutions for both aesthetic and effective communication on all your mounts.

THE LABEL, A PRECIOUS ALLY FOR COMMUNICATION

The purpose of advertising and communication labels is to highlight and inform about the company and its know-how.

The communication adhesive must also make it possible to stand out from the competition by offering a creative, innovative, easily understandable and memorable message. The advertising adhesive must therefore be able to be strategically placed on a maximum number of mounts.

Alsace Techniques Etiquetage produces customised labels for your for tailor-made communication.

A VARIETY OF ADHESIVES USED IN COMMUNICATION

Alsace Techniques Etiquetage has a long experience in the transformation of adhesives.

Double-sided adhesive allows, for example, thanks to its two printed sides, to increase the printing surface, to hide a message, or to discreetly insert additional information.

Finally, the coupon-style label, printed on both sides, can be stuck on and then peeled off as a promotional offer sticker.

APPLICATION EXAMPLES...

Braille labels, packaging labels, promotional labels, window stickers, datamatrix, QR codes, barcodes, variable data (increments), double-sided labels

ATE, impactful communication.

Packaging | Logistics

Packaging combines multiple functions such as protection but also logistics, tracking and communication. ATE's know-how meets these different needs with targeted adhesive solutions.

PACKAGING ADHESIVE

Packaging or over-packaging adhesive has several roles. Alsace Techniques Etiquetage is expert in printing and cutting this type of labels which must be able to inform the handler and the customer about the nature of the products and provide indications on the transport and storage conditions.

The nature, properties and shape of the adhesive are thus thought out in advance, depending on the product, the surface to be applied and the transport conditions.

Some adhesives will only be useful for a few hours, while others will last for the entire life of the product. The packaging adhesive also has specific characteristics for brand communication and acts as a marketing tool.

A VARIETY OF PACKAGING TAPE

Packaging tape often takes the form of rolls. This type of tape is available in a number of models, differing both in appearance and in their components and properties.

Whether it is to secure a package for handling or to communicate technical or commercial information, packaging tape by Alsace Techniques Etiquetage offers many advantages.

ADHESIVE HELPING LOGISTICS

Complete, smooth and fast tracking of packages is the key to efficient logistics. To optimise the flow of goods, logistics professionals use adhesive labels in many cases.

From the production line to the final delivery, the adhesive label guarantees the arrival of a package to its recipient. Whether pallets, transport crates or simple cardboard boxes, adhesives must be able to adhere to different types of surfaces.

They also need to withstand the rigours of handling so that they can be easily scanned at each stage of delivery by all the players in the distribution chain. For each logistics application there is a dedicated adhesive that facilitates and secures the transaction from one end of the chain to the other.

WHAT TYPES OF ADHESIVES ARE USED IN THE FIELD OF LOGISTICS ?

Logistics covers all the stages of a company’s material organisation.

Whether for internal use or for delivery, it is essential for companies to be able to ensure the safe and efficient moving of their products.

Adhesives can help meet this need through a variety of targeted applications. For example, order picking labels or pallet labels can be used to identify batches at each stage of transport.

APPLICATION EXAMPLES...

Inventory labels, storage labels, datamatrix, barcodes, QR codes or variable data (increments), tamper evident labels, RFID, traceability labels, rack labels
