Testing and certification process of tesa® solutions


Comprehensive R&D and laboratory support

Our Customer Solution Center provide exclusive testing by analyzing of industry standard materials in combination with our adhesive tape solutions solutions. Customized tests for special materials are also possible in order to certify individual combinations. We test, for example, the adhesive performance, flammability (based on UL 94) and climate cycle tests. In some cases, these go beyond what the respective standards require of our products and are the basis for the extraordinarily high quality of our adhesive tape solutions.
