Benefits of tesa® ACXplus Industrial Tapes in Building Envelope Applications
Using tesa® ACXplus 70200 Certified Durability in Building Envelope applications brings a variety of benefits for the installer.
Double-sided acrylic foam tapes ensure the façade has an aesthetic appeal when viewed either from a distance or up close. This is valid for cladding applications where very often rivets or screws interrupt the clean finished look of a façade panel. In structural glazing applications the benefits are clean edged lines that are maintained indoor and outdoor, and less distance between the glass and the frame which leads to an improved appearance.
tesa® ACXplus 70200 Certified Durability remains its uniform and constant black color, therefore a mismatch of colors within the bonding component is not visible. It is important to keep in mind, that tesa® ACXplus 70200 Certified Durability may only be used after a detailed examination (technical questionnaire and adhesion tests on substrates). Based on the input from the customer and our application assessment we will provide a product recommendation. Ultimately the final product decision is made by the customer after additional testing and requirements are analyzed.
Certainly some of the main benefits of using tesa® ACXplus are simplified installation and reduced fabrication times. Double-sided acrylic foam tapes do not require mixing, tooling, curing or drying, which leads saving time during the fabrication process. tesa® ACXplus is easy to apply and trained staff can usually finish a building unit faster than a silicone glazed unit. This again can be translated into saving time in labor and materials.
Finished building elements can be loaded onto a truck immediately for quick delivery and installation on the construction side.
