    Innovative Adhesive Tape by Dr. Antosik Promises Multi-Industry Applications

    Dr. Adrian Krzysztof Antosik from the West Pomeranian University of Technology has developed a groundbreaking adhesive tape combining bactericidal and heat-resistant properties. Funded by the National Centre for Research and Development (NCBR), his project has led to three distinct types of tapes: one with bactericidal properties, another with exceptional heat resistance, and a third that merges both features. These tapes, which release essential oils from their silicone-based adhesive, stand out in global innovation.

    Applications Across Industries

    The versatile bio-thermal tape can be used in various industries. In photovoltaics, it addresses efficiency loss by providing a durable cooling solution. Automotive applications include replacing traditional fasteners like ties and rivets, and in fireplaces, it offers effective sealing solutions. The tape’s durability is enhanced by its ability to withstand temperatures up to 300 degrees Celsius.

    The bactericidal properties open doors for usage in food storage, hospitals, and laboratories. It can ensure sterility in environments like autoclaves and other medical equipment. The flexible yet strong tape is ideal for difficult-to-access areas and irregular surfaces, making it invaluable in maintaining hygiene standards.

    Dr. Antosik’s project, “Self-Adhesive Silicone Adhesives for Special Applications (SPECSIL),” has attracted industrial interest, primarily from Polish companies. Additionally, he is exploring biodegradable films from natural materials for medical use, extending his innovative reach. This project exemplifies the potential of advanced adhesive technologies to revolutionize multiple sectors.
