What is meant by “natural tack”?--Silicone Thermal Pad

Q: What is meant by “natural tack”?

A: The characteristic of the rubber itself has a natural inherent tack,

with the addition of an adhesive. As with adhesive-backed prod-

ucts, the surfaces with natural tack may help in the assembly

process to temporarily hold the pad in place while the application

is being assembled. Unlike adhesive-backed products, inherent tack

does not have a thermal penalty since the rubber itself has the

tack. Tack strength varies from one Gap Pad product to the next.
