Adhesive Solutions for Automotive Electrical Systems

Electrical components found throughout the vehicle are increasing as consumers expect more comfort, ease and convenience. Advancements in technology will require more wire harness and cable wrap applications than ever before. This results in a diverse set of challenges with an opportunity for tape adhesives to play an even greater role in these types of applications.

Various adhesive properties may be needed depending on the tape construction and application area within the vehicle. For example, tapes used in the engine compartment generally require high temperature bonding and resistance to oil and harsh chemicals, whereas tapes used within the cabin may have a strong focus on low VOC and fogging characteristics.

Avery Dennison Performance Polymers has a full suite of adhesives that offer characteristics formulated to meet specific application requirements. Our portfolio of solvent, emulsion and UV-cured acrylic adhesives for wire harness and cable wrap tapes features:

  • Complex elastic modulus for bonding to a wide variety of automotive substrates
  • High cohesive strength to resist flagging in-application
  • Broad range of both low and high temperature resistance
  • Excellent unwind force and anchoring to backing materials (including PVC, PET and cloths) for a smooth installation


At Avery Dennison Performance Polymers, our technical service and R&D teams bring together extensive Materials Science knowledge and polymer design and formulation. We combine our coating and converting know-how with a deep understanding of end-user applications. And, our team has the capability to quickly tailor and customize adhesives to provide the right solution to your unique application-driven challenges.
