Double sided adhesive foam blocks are cubes that have been cut out of solid polyethylene foam that has been equipped with double sides adhesive. The adhesive blocks come in three versions: both sides with removable adhesive, both sides with permanent adhesive, and one side with removable adhesive and one side permanent. These blocks are most commonly found being used for affixing Kapa boards, presentation charts and cardboard on walls. In doing so, these adhesive blocks fulfill two functions at once: they are distance pieces as well as mounting agents.
Both removable versions are special in that are active in the “temporarily attach something without leaving any traces when removed” realm, whereby they present an alternative to TESA POWERSTRIPS as a way to attach photographs to virgin white walls or the like.
Gluing itself is already a difficult topic, temporary and residue-free gluing all the more difficult because factors like temperature over time and the combination of materials plays an important role. Much is unpredictable and simply has to be tested to see if it works. We have had good success with the two removable versions when using them to affix large Kapa boards on painted walls, rough concrete walls and wood. We were always able to remove the boards after many weeks without leaving any traces. Nevertheless, we cannot give any specifications regarding bearing capacity of the blocks.
Because of its soft surface, the blocks can compensate for any unevenness of a wall. The substrate should, as with all gluing work, be dry and free of grease and dirt. The blocks can be cleanly cut with a blade.
The Herma company has such an extensive range of labels that practically every need can be satisfied. In addition to the standard labels that you write on (adhesive dots and multipurpose labels), there is also a large selection of printer labels which can be used with all types of printers.
Herma print labels can be used with printers without concern because of their optimal flatness and high degree of suppleness. In order to prevent the mechanical parts of the printer coming into contact with the adhesive, the covering paper overlaps somewhat all the way around. Herma labels are continually being tested on the machines of the leading printer manufacturers with the following result: an exclusive recommendation from HP as well a certificate of quality from Epson, Oki, Xerox and many others.
To carry the complete range of Herma labels in stock would be pretty much impossible. We have therefore limited our assortment to those that are most widely used; but any other Herma article that you might require can be ordered on very short notice (usually within 24 hours). At www.herma.de
you will find a well designed and easy-to-use web site displaying all the Herma products. If you find the label you want at the site, Modulor can get it for you immediately.
The labels are easy to print: label formats are already programmed into many established software solutions. Free format updates are available under www.herma.de/software.
