Challenge

The challenge of joining a variety of materials

blue questionmark

Constructive and permanent bonding can be a challenge in almost every industry. Often different materials need to be bonded - for example aluminum, steel, glass, fiber composites, plastics, painted or powder-coated surfaces. In today's design concepts, high-tech materials need to be bonded without affecting their special structures and properties.
Solution

The solution: our tesa® ACXplus acrylic foam tapes

blue exclemation point

For powerful, long-lasting bonds, even on materials with different surface characteristics.


Traditional mechanical fasteners like screws, rivets, and welds may provide insufficient bonds. Over time, they can come loose or start to rattle, and they can damage the joined materials. To overcome this challenge, our high performance acrylic foam tapes provide reliable solutions for permanent bonding applications, optimizing your manufacturing processes, and helping you to offer competitive products to the market.

Technical properties

Mechanical features of our tesa® ACXplus assortment

The high performance of tesa® ACXplus acrylic foam tapes is based on a special feature: viscoelasticity.

Viscoelasticity describes a material performance which is defined by both elastic and viscous characteristics. The elastic restoring forces provide inner strength while the viscous part of the material behavior leads to relaxation of mechanical stresses.  tesa® ACXplus employs a special acrylic adhesive system that combines both effects in an outstanding way:

Inner core strength

  • Elastic and viscous characteristics provide the strength for a permanent bond
  • Constant product features over time even in outdoor conditions
  • tesa® ACXplus can compensate static loads over the entire bond's duration of the product life cycle
tesa ACXplus inner core strength
tesa ACXplus stress dissipation

Stress dissipation

  • Our acrylic foam tapes compensate for thermal elongation of different materials
  • Dynamic stresses are optimally dissipated for a secure bond
