Tesa tape is one of the world’s leading manufacturers of self adhesive tape for the signage industry. Backed by more than a century of experience, the company’s core product competence ranges from high-performance single-sided tapes to an extensive range of industry- leading double-sided tapes for bonding applications.
By supplying industries such as automotive, electronics, and paper production, tesa proves its ability to fulfill the most demanding customer requirements on a daily basis.
tesa® ACXplus is a powerful bonding technology designed for materials with different surface characteristics. Its acrylic adhesive system secures optimal “wetting” and chemically adapts to the bonded surface. Moreover, the tape thickness can be adjusted to compensate for rough and uneven surfaces. The result is permanent contact and complete sealing of the joined surfaces. This leads to a high strength, long-term bond which will last for decades.
During the life cycle of a component, static and dynamic stresses act upon the constructive bond. In some circumstances, stresses in the bonded joint are caused by different thermal elongations of the respective substrates. Due to the viscoelastic properties of tesa® ACXplus, the ensuing stresses can be optimally dissipated to ensure a secure bond. Extreme temperature changes are tolerated, even for joining substrates with different elongation factors.
Temperature and Weather Resistance tesa® ACXplus provides high resistance to temperatures and different weather conditions. The main reason is the oxidation resistance of the fully saturated carbon chain, which is the foundation of the acrylates used in tesa® ACXplus. Furthermore, the special curing chemistry forms an outstanding temperature-resistant polymer network, resulting in a superior bond that resists temperature, weather, ultraviolet light, and chemical influences.
