tesa® ACXplus 74508 Seal Line

0.8 mm heat activatable acrylic foam tape for mounting window seal and water box seal applications

Product description

tesa® ACXplus 74508 Seal Line is a deep black acrylic foam tape for permanent mounting of weather strips and water box seals, mainly on automotive glass. It has a heat-activatable adhesive on the non-liner side. The adhesive gets activated by hot air or near-infrared when applying it onto the PP/EPDM, PP, TPV, or TPE seal.

Compared to the conventional process with primer, tesa® ACXplus 74508 Seal Line ensures a highly secure bond to the rubber profile, enables a higher application speed than using primer, and realizes a more environmentally friendly production process.

Its outstanding cold shock resistance is based on a modified acrylic foam core, which assures a reliable bond even at extreme low temperatures. Being viscoelastic, tesa® ACXplus 74508 Seal Line absorbs and dissipates dynamic and static loads optimally. This exceptional capability enables tesa® ACXplus 74508 Seal Line to compensate for extreme physical stress caused by the different thermal elongation of bonded parts in rapidly changing temperatures.

The deep black color provides an enhanced appearance and high design flexibility.

Main features:
  • High stiffness is especially suitable for mounting water box profiles
  • Efficient and secure bonding of the heat-activatable layer to seals
  • PFAS / PFOS free Product
  • Strong bonding of the heat-activatable layer to backing that withstands humidity and heat
  • Closed cell acrylic foam core for reliable sealing to prevent water penetration
  • High humidity and UV resistance
  • Excellent cold shock performance

Application Fields

tesa® ACXplus 74508 Seal Line can be widely used for mounting window seals, water box seals, sunroof seals, and obstacle detection systems (ODSs).
