2014 (English)Student thesis
The IKEA customers are looking for new solutions to mount products in their homes and IKEA has embraced the request for this type of applications in bathroom environments as it is of the largest challenges for the customer. Double sided tape has been identified as a possible solution, hence why this project was put together. The research aims to give the reader a deeper understanding regarding double sided tape and the influences of external variables such as material, substrate and surface tension to mention a few. Extensive tests have been carried out where samples from double sided tape suppliers are examined. The test that was developed and carried out in this project aimed to include some of IKEA´s most commonly used materials together with common substrates in bathroom environments. The test data was compiled and the outcome was used to give recommendations to IKEA regarding future product development when using double sided tape and also recommend suitable tape suppliers for continued cooperation.
