tesa® ACXplus is an acrylic core double sided tape for high strength constructive bonding and is the highest performing product range made by tesa. The range includes tapes with solid acrylic cores and foamed acrylic cores.Acrylic tapes are commonly used in many industries, as they can bond on a wide variety of even and uneven surfaces, such as plastics, glass, wood and most metals. Acrylic double sided tapes are great for permanent mounting, as they are resistant to different temperatures and weather conditions, while foam backed acrylic tapes provide additional benefits such as sound, shock and vibration absorption.
The Power of Acrylic Adhesives
The high performance of tesa® ACXplus is based on a special feature called 'viscoelasticity'. Viscoelasticity describes a material which is defined by both viscous and elastic properties. The elastic restoring forces provide inner strength, whilst the viscous part allows for relaxation of mechanical stresses. This means acrylic tapes are able to compensate for the different thermal expansion and contraction characteristics of dissimilar materials.
The special balance between these two properties not only provides optimal wetting of different surfaces, in other words optimum surface contact, but also absorbs dynamic forces and vibrations relieving stresses in the bond. This results in a bond that is both dimensionally stable and permanent
