Asner SheetBuffer material sheets for bonding dissimilar materials

About Asner Sheet

Asner Sheet

The Asner Sheet is a rubber sheet uniquely developed by ASK Industries as an intermediate material used when bonding dissimilar material together. The Asner Sheet improves the adhesiveness and water tightness of areas that are subject to impact, and also absorbs slight vibrations. Further, since the sheet has a non-sticky surface, it can also be used as a material for gaskets with minimal stickiness.
We can provide sample products. Please contact us.

Adhesive applications

Skis, snowboards, archery, clubs used in mallet-based golfing games, aluminum sashes, gravestones, CFRP + Steel

Anti-seismic applications

Golf shafts, earthquake-resistant reinforcing materials and sound insulation materials for buildings, sports accessories such as golf club heads

Asner Sheet: method of use and storage

How to use
  1. Prepare the materials to be adhered together.
  2. Apply adhesive agent to both sides of the Asner Sheet, or apply an adhesive sheet.
  3. Place the Asner Sheet to which adhesive agent has been applied between the materials to be adhered together, and bond them. Note: the conditions of adhesion will depend on the conditions for the adhesive agent you are using.
How to store

Keep this material away from direct sunlight and dust. (Note that as the rubber material used in the Asner Sheet is stable, degradation is almost never a problem when the product is stored normally.)

Strength and Characteristics of Materials Adhered to the Asner Sheet

The Asner Sheet is used as a buffer material when bonding dissimilar materials.

For example, when you try to apply an aluminum panel onto a wood surface, the material will come off when exposed to impact. By using an Asner Sheet between the two materials, you can prevent them from peeling apart due to impact, flexing, heat or other forces.
This material is widely used for products like skis and snowboards that need to stand up to repeated repelling forces, skis used in ski jumping that must hold up under strong forces of impact when the rider slides down high slopes and then lands, and in the manufacture of sporting goods like rackets, shafts and so on.

Asner Sheet NWAn even more lightweight non-woven fabric version of the Asner Sheet

About the Asner SheetNW

Asner Sheet NW

The Asner Sheet NW is an even more lightweight non-woven fabric version of the Asner Sheet, infused with SBR latex. This product is used in many sporting goods, with a vibration damping ratio that makes the difference. Your logo or other design can be printed directly onto the surface of the Asner Sheet NW, for use as a surface material.

Adhesive applications

Adhesive needs for skis, snowboards, archery, clubs used in mallet-based golfing games, aluminum sashes and gravestones

Anti-seismic applications

Golf shafts, earthquake-resistant reinforcing materials and sound insulation materials for buildings, sports accessories such as golf club heads

Composite material-related products

Composite material-related products

What are composite materials?

Composite materials are composed of two or more materials with different characteristics, which are strongly bonded together at the surface to form a single compound material with enhanced strength, rigidity and lighter weight.
We are involved in developing products that make use of the adhesive qualities of our Asner Sheet, in response to surface adhesion needs.
