Bonding of Architectural Panels

Bonding of Architectural Panels

From decorative wall coverings to attractive facades, our tapes make an aesthetically pleasing appearance possible. Architectural panels, e.g. aluminum composite material, are used for curtain wall and exterior, as well as interior building cladding. An acrylic foam tape like tesa® ACX Plus bonds to a broad range of surfaces, which provides freedom of design as it allows a greater choice of materials.



From decorative wall coverings to attractive facades, tesa tapes play an important role in bonding materials that aim for a clean, aesthetically pleasing appearance, especially when compared to mechanical fasteners. Architectural panels – aluminium composite, HPL or metal panels – are permanently bonded to the substructure with tesa® ACXplus. A double-sided tape does not require any additional support material and creates less waste. Clean production sites with less waste promote a safe work environment. Our double-sided tapes help to achieve fast application, as no curing time is needed and bonded elements can move directly to the next process step. A continuous production process is therefore guaranteed and no equipment for special storage conditions is required.

Direct-Stick Method

Concealed mounting of aluminium composite panels to metal substructures:

  • Invisible and optimal aesthetic design
  • No damage to the material in use
  • Weather resistant and suitable for outdoor use
