Double-Sided Tape

Strong Double Sided Tapes For Industrial and Home Use

Due to their high and long-lasting adhesive strength, double-sided tapes allow objects to be quickly and easily fixed to a wide range of different surfaces. Whether you are looking for a temporary or a long-lasting mounting solution in Australia and New Zealand, tesa leverages over 125 years of experience to offer a wide range of permanent and removable double-sided tapes for industrial and trade applications.

High-performance Double Sided Tapes

tesa offers an extensive range of high performance double sided tapes, both removable and permanent, for a wide range of industrial applications. As a leading global manufacturer of double-sided tapes, tesa offers a complete range of solutions that meet even the most challenging requirements.

Our range includes solutions for general and constructive mounting in outdoor environments requiring long-lasting resistance to extreme high and low temperatures, UV, ageing and water and weathering. For indoor applications requiring removability such as temporary flooring and ticketing strips, our range of removable tapes. Our converter market solutions are also designed to allow flexibility in design for custom gaskets, nameplates and more.

For the most critical constructive mounting applications, tesa ACXplus high bond acrylic foam tape ensures a seamless design, and provides the confidence and peace of mind of a secure and long lasting bond. tesa ACXplus consists of a high performance acrylic adhesive with optimum viscoelastic properties offers an excellent bond, even on low surface energy substrates. The strong double sided tapes within this range also offer stress dissipation and outstanding temperature and weather resistance.

Frequently Asked Questions on Our Double Sided Tapes

Is mounting tape the same as double sided tape?

Yes, double sided tape is a type of mounting tape that can be used for indoor and outdoor mounting applications. Double sided tape can mount items on flat surfaces like walls, transparent smooth surfaces like glass, metal, plastic, in addition to uneven or rough surfaces like fibrous fabrics.


What is the strongest double sided adhesive tape?

The strongest double sided adhesive tape is double sided foam tape with an acrylic adhesive core. The adhesive and backing material has viscoelasticity properties, which maintains strong bond between dissimilar materials despite temperature, moisture, and weather. Our strongest double sided tape is tesa ACXplus high bond tape.


Is double sided tape removable?

Yes, some foam, film, and cloth double sided tapes are removable. tesa ® 656xx Removable Series foam tapes and tesa Bond & Detach® product range are some examples of double sided tape with easy, residue-free removal.


Are double sided tapes as strong as screws and rivets?

Compared to using screws and rivets, there are no weak spots when using double sided tape, as stresses are evenly distributed across the bonded area. Furthermore, there are no health and safety considerations as with welding. Double sided tapes are safe and simple to use, and can also be presented in specific die-cut shapes to aid more precise applications.

How to choose the right double sided tape?

When choosing the right double sided tape, one of the key features to consider is the backing. The backing influences the tapes performance. Our extensive double sided tape range covers a variety of backings designed to cover even the most challenging applications.


  • Tissue tape – The non-woven backings are extremely thin and flexible. They are highly conformable making them suitable for flexible and uneven surfaces. Widely used for mounting small signs and nameplates as well as textiles and fabrics in the blinds industry.
  • Cloth tape – The Interwoven cloth backing allows optimal adhesive coating, making them particularly well suited for mounting rough fibrous surfaces and fabrics. The rubber adhesive systems also allow clean removal without leaving behind adhesive residues (on select products), which can be critical for applications in exhibition centres such as temporary flooring.
  • Filmic tape – A thin yet very strong backing that provides superior bonding properties on flat surfaces. The range also includes transparent and optically clear options which are idea when mounting on glass or translucent surfaces. High temperature resistance can also be achieved when combined with an acrylic adhesive, making them well suited for outdoor applications.
  • PE foam tape – The polyethylene backings are available in a variety of thicknesses to ensure that gaps can be effectively filled and also to offer shock absorption properties. The high inner strength of our PE foam backings makes them well suited for a wide range of mounting applications, such as mirrors, splashbacks, signs, trims and profiles.
  • tesa®​ ACXplus acrylic core tape – When it comes to critical mounting applications, tesa® ACXplus offers the ultimate performance. Equipped with extremely high adhesion power and inner strength, this backing provides the peace of mind that at a secure bond will be achieved that will continue to last. On top of this, the viscoelastic nature enables the backing dissipate a range of stresses, such as different thermal expansion rates, windload and cold shock.


What other tape properties are important when choosing a double sided tape?

When choosing the right double sided tape it is also important to consider colour, heat resistance, bonding strength and tape thickness. 

  • Colour - tesa double sided tapes are available in transparent, translucent, black and white. Transparent and optically clear options are ideal when mounting on glass and windows.
  • Heat resistance - Temperature is a critical element that can affect the strength of the bond. Our double sided range has product options that can withstand up to 250°C in temperature, making them ideal for even the most challenging outdoor applications.
  • Bond strength - A critical consideration for load bearing applications. With different adhesive formulations and backing configurations, including ACXplus high bond tape, a secure bond can be achieved.
  • Tape thickness - Thickness of the backing and adhesive mass can affect the bond strength and performance, as well as compensate for gap filling requirements. Our range covers thicknesses from 100 µm up to 3,000 µm, to ensure the optimal bond can be achieved.
