EXPLORE OUR LABORATORY
Our laboratory is temperature controlled to industry standards and is fully equipped to test bond strength, holding power and tack; high and low temperature performance, and resistance to weathering, ageing and UV light. We also develop and conduct customer-specific tests:
Accelerated weathering machine
Our accelerated weathering machine is used to prove the long term durability of our products for outdoor applications, often on our customers’ material.
Electronic tensile tester
An electronic tensile tester is used to measure bond strength to various materials, and release liner values. Much of our adhesion testing is on customer's own materials.
Measuring surface energy
Measuring surface energy can be important in determining the correct product for the application.
Long-term shear tests
Long-term shear tests provide the best reassurance or tape reliability…
Shear is the measurement that probably gives us the most information - certainly as a predictor of long term performance. All pressure-sensitive adhesives under stress will slowly flow with time, particularly at elevated temperatures. Most companies use shear only as a short term Quality Control test - testing for just a matter of hours. We test shear long term, sometimes for many months, and at different temperatures, so we really know that our products will perform long term.

F P Tapes
"Boyland Joinery supply high quality joinery products, including timber windows that carry a comprehensive guarantee. We require high quality components and have used Technibond since 2003. Technibond provided glazing and bonding tapes plus advice and application equipment that not only saved us money, but allowed us to bring all our glazing in-house to improve performance and quality. Additionally Technibond always delivers on time and provides an excellent Technical response to our queries."

Frequently Asked Questions
We slit most of our products to order, so we have no standard roll width. If you want 13mm or 133mm, you can have it.
As a standard, the minimum is 6mm. We can slit most products narrower than this (we have slit down to 1.6mm) but we charge the same per roll as if it were 6mm, due to the increased slitting and packaging difficulty and the increased waste. The maximum width depends on the product, but is usually at least 1 metre.
We hold large quantities of bulk rolls in stock and manufacture to order. That's the only way we can offer the number of products and product variations that we do.
UK deliveries on rolls, 3 to 5 working days. Spools, pads and die-cuts are 10 working days. If your order is urgent, please speak to our sales department and we'll try to help. Export orders are subject to longer delivery times.
Our MOQ on most rolls is £100. On rolls of Techniflex and on other formats it is £200.
On UK orders over £200 delivery is free. On orders between £100 and £200 we add a small order charge of £20. We can arrange a.m. and courier deliveries for additional charges.
As our products are made to order, we cannot generally accept returns unless the goods are faulty.
We are proud to guarantee the quality and performance of all our products and will quickly provide a replacement or refund if they fail to meet our standards.
Yes, we export around the world. Currently we export to Europe, the Far East, Australia and the US.
