Product description

tesa® 50118 PV1 is a 540 µm PET fleece tape with a water-based acrylic adhesive. This tape has been designed for a wide range of automotive interior applications like cable mounting and BSR prevention (buzz, squeak, and rattle prevention). Due to its low VOC property it is particularly designed to meet automotive interior requirements.
This tape is characterized by a high adhesion strength on critical surfaces like nonpolar and rough substrates.
tesa® 50118 PV1 is available in black and white and as a die-cut solution and is suitable for automatic dispensers.

Product Features

  • Excellent damping properties
  • Low VOC (according to GB 27630) – no critical substances detectable
  • High peel resistance on irregular, rough, and nonpolar surfaces
  • High shear strength
  • Tear resistant
  • Suitable for automatic tape dispensers

Application Fields

tesa® 50118 PV1 is suitable for mounting cables and wire harnesses on different components inside a car. It ensures quick and secure fixation of flat and round cables with excellent damping properties (BSR prevention).

Example applications are:
  • Mounting cables to headliners
  • BSR prevention in inner doors, dashboards, display frames, seat belt buckles, and other things

To ensure the highest performance possible, our aim is to fully understand your application (including the substrates involved) in order to provide the right product recommendation.
