tesa® 62856

1.2 mm double-sided PE foam tape for mounting automotive exterior trims and emblems

Product description

tesa® 62856 is a double-sided adhesive tape consisting of a conformable black PE foam backing and a pure acrylic adhesive. With a thickness of 1.2 mm, it is suitable for mounting small trims and nameplates, especially those with filigree designs.

The black color allows for an almost invisible bond line. Due to the high conformability, the tape ensures a good wet out and secure bonding even on uneven surfaces and compensates for design tolerances.

The pure acrylic adhesive features a very good initial and high ultimate adhesion performance on MSE plastics like ABS, chromed ABS, PC, and PMMA, as well as on MSE clear coats combined with an excellent temperature resistance. The impressive cold shock performance results from the damping properties of the PE foam backing even at temperatures below -40°C. The PE foam backing also provides non-sticky edges resulting in excellent converting properties, e.g. for die cutting.

Additionally, the tape combines high cohesive strength with a comparatively low density contributing positively to a low weight design.

Also available in 0.5 mm, 0.8 mm, and 0.9 mm formats.

Main features:
  • High ultimate adhesive strength
  • Excellent temperature resistance
  • Excellent converting properties, especially for filigree designs
  • Conformable foam backing to compensate for design tolerances or uneven surfaces
