tesa® 62512

1200 µm double sided PE foam tape

Product description

tesa® 62512 is a double sided PE foam tape for mounting applications. It consists of a highly conformable PE foam backing and a tackified acrylic adhesive.
Product benefits:
  • High ultimate adhesion level for a reliable bonding performance
  • Fully outdoor suitable: UV, water and ageing resistant
  • Conformable PE foam core with high inner strength
  • Suitable for automatic and manual module assembly
  • Easy solar module assembly due to a high foam compression rate

Application Fields

  • General mounting applications
  • Mounting of trims and profiles
  • Solar frame modules
