Covid-19 Technibond Response
I'd like to give you a detailed explanation of Technibond's current status regarding Covid-19 and the reasons behind it.
Some of our customers have taken the decision to close their companies while others are remaining open. Technibond has made the decision to remain open. Some companies who are closing have cited Government advice as the reason. This is not our understanding. While the Prime Minister on Monday evening seemed to be suggesting we should all close, clarification by ministers the next morning and since then was more precise. It has clearly been stated that construction, at least on large projects, should continue and that manufacturing should continue, Further, it has been said that people should work remotely if they possibly can, but where that is not possible people should still go to work while closely following the social distancing instructions. This is the guidance we are following. If Government advice changes we will, of course, review our situation.
Our priorities are twofold, firstly to protect our own people and secondly to continue to service our customers, some of whom supply hospitals and other critical areas.
Clearly, as a manufacturer most of our people cannot work remotely. We are therefore taking all the precautions we can, to safeguard our people. Our premises measure around 25,000 square feet and are occupied by less than 20 people at any one time, so all our people can work well separated by one another. We are strictly enforcing the social distancing rules. We have placed hand sanitizers at all entrances (and at other locations) and it is mandatory for anyone entering to sanitize their hands. We have also placed disinfectant wipes where any keyboards are shared.Our washrooms are well equipped with disposable towels and liquid soap. Our location is not well served by public transport so almost all our people come to work in their own cars.
A few of our people can work remotely, in whole or part, and they are doing so. We are investing in better technology to allow them to be more effective and to be able to communicate better with our customers.
We are determined to continue to support our customers without any deterioration in our service product and delivery. We always keep very high stocks of our raw materials but are increasing these further. All our main suppliers are working normally and we understand that the EC will prioritize maintaining trade. Our reputation is based on reliability and quality and we intend to maintain this despite what is a very difficult time for all of us.
I wish you and your business all the best and I assure you that Technibond will do all it can to help you through this crisis. Keep safe.

Technibond - 431 The Mystery Revealed
It’s the most misunderstood product in our range! It’s permanent but it’s temporary. It’s high bond strength but removable. It’s our thickest thin tape. It’s unique but it’s one of our most versatile products. Why do we sell it? Where do we recommend it? Here are all the answers….
431 is actually an industrial version of a printers’ plate mounting tape. This was the “old generation” tape that was used for heavy duty letterpress printing blocks as well as the newer lightweight flexo plates. A failure of a printing block in a letterpress machine could cause thousands of pounds worth of damage….so these products don’t fail!
The requirements of that application were to form a secure bond between the printing block and the machine bed that would not only not fail, but would resist any slippage under the repeated high pressure of the print process, so as to maintain accurate print register. So the tape needs good gap-filling properties plus good adhesion plus good shear strength. And it needs to resist softening by the printing ink. But after a print run the block and the tape needs to be removed, without leaving residue on the machine bed that would require cleaning and cause down time. So the tape needs to be cleanly removable even after quite long times under high pressure. That’s why this product is unique.
So 431 is the thickest of our non-foam tapes, at 0.35 mm thick,with good tack that makes it great for bonding to rough and slightly uneven materials, even quite difficult materials. It bridges the gap between the extreme gap-filling abilities of our foam tapes and the limited gap-filling abilities of our thin tapes. It uses an acrylic formulation to resist solvents, so it also has good plasticizer resistance.
431 is a permanent adhesive suitable for robust or lightweight applications, and being acrylic has a long life, withstanding exposure to UV light. And the unique feature is that even after long periods of time it can be cleanly removed from almost any sound surface, even most plasticized materials such as vinyl, and even on glass after long UV exposure.
It has a strong high quality woven rayon carrier with a controlled thickness, quite unlike the cheap cotton scrim of other cloth tapes. This provides the removability and also allows the tape to reinforce flexible materials, preventing stretch. 431 is available in rolls, or as cut pads.
Typical applications are:
Temporary mounting of posters, cards and display items, even on windows.
Mounting posters and display items on rough surfaces such as internal brickwork.
Mounting office signs that may need to be changed in the future.
Attachment of promotional items to magazine covers.
Bonding abrasives to grinding discs
Transit packaging to secure items during packaging and transport.
Making rubber products self-adhesive
Manufacture of specialist masking products.
Holding Perspex, polycarbonate, metals etc during routing cutting or drilling processes
