- Multi-use tape was used for several applications and redundant on use
- After the tape was applied, adhesive was exposed in some areas

Case Study Reposition Thermal Interface
Finding a repositionable tape that bonds to silicone without interfering with thermal conductivity put Budnick’s tape experts to the test.
- Typically, silicone only bonds to silicone, but silicone tapes affected thermal conductivity
- Sufficient amount of testing took place before finding an acrylic transfer
- The acrylic adhesive did not prevent the heat transferring through the interface
Case Study Reengineering
