tesa® 4952

Double-sided PE-foam mounting tape

Product description

tesa® 4952 is a double sided PE foam tape, consisting of a highly conformable closed cell PE-foam backing and a tackified acrylic adhesive. The foam tape offers a highly versatile adhesive for high immediate adhesion on numerous types of substrates and high immediate bonding strength even at low bonding pressure. tesa® 4952 features excellent resistance to water, UV and ageing, making it completely suitable for outdoors. The double sided foam tape is capable of compensating different thermal expansions of different materials. tesa® 4952 features very good cold shock absorption. tesa® 4952 is ideally used for constructive mounting applications and has been externally certified for mirror mounting.
tesa® 4952 has been externally tested and certified for mirror mounting by the LGA institute. Report number IWQ FSG 329 1189. The tape has an immediate peel adhesion: foam splitting on steel, aluminium, ABS, PC, PS, PET, PVC. And a peel adhesion after 14 days: foam splitting on steel, aluminium, ABS, PC, PS, PET, PVC.
