Our flame retardant and halogen-free mounting assortment: proven reliability and safety where it matters most
To ensure health and asset protection, fire safety regulations are of special importance in a variety of industries, such as aviation, trains, marine, building & construction, elevators, automotive, and e-mobilityLEADING STANDARDS<br>
Elevators: EN 81-58:2018-05<br>
Building & construction: EN 13501-1<br>
Aviation: FAR 25.853<br>
Trains: EN 45545<br>
Marine: Marine Equipment Directive (MED)<br>
Automotive: FMVSS 302.
These regulations define precise standards for manufacturing processes and all integrated materials, such as self-adhesive tapes used for demanding mounting applications of various components. The use of flame retardants is an essential part of fire standards, since they can delay or extinguish fire development, and give more time for firefighters to intervene and save lifes and assets.
Our tesa® flameXtinct assortment complies with flame retardancy standards and all tapes are halogen-free, which supports smoke reduction and less gas toxicity. Since the
majority of fire-related fatalities is caused by the inhalation of toxic fumes, international regulations strive to restrict the use of certain halogenated products in the future.
