Product description

tesa HAF® 58473 is a reactive heat activated structural bonding film based on phenolic resin and nitrile rubber. This black double sided tape has no backing. It is protected by a strong paper liner.

It is activated by heat and pressure applied during the assembly process.

Application Fields

tesa HAF® 58473 is especially recommended for bonding of metal components to metal surfaces or heat resistant plastics, e.g. SUS or AL to PI, PMMA or ABS:
  • Constructive bonding inside electronic devices
  • FPC bonding
  • Button fixation
  • Camera lens and bezel mounting
  • Bonding of decorative metal components

Product Construction

Type of adhesive nitrile rubber / phenolic resin
Type of liner glassine
Total thickness 80 µm
Backing material none
Color black

Properties / Performance Values

Bonding strength 7 N/mm²

Additional Info

Technical recommendations:
tesa HAF® is not self adhesive. It is activated by heat and pressure over a certain interval. The following values are recommendations for bond line parameters to start with.
1. Pre-lamination:
During pre-lamination, the adhesive tape is laminated onto the first substrate. This step does not affect the shelf life time of the adhesive tape. Pre-laminated components can be stored over the same period of time as the adhesive tape.
setting:
  • Temperature¹ 95-120 °C
  • Pressure² 2-6 bar
  • Time 3-10 s
2. Bonding:
Remove the liner from tape after pre-lamination step. Place the pre-laminated part onto the second substrate. Apply sufficient temperature while applying pressure for the bonding time to reach sufficient bonding strength.
setting:
  • Temperature¹ 120-250 °C
  • Pressure² 5-30 bar
  • Time 5-180 s
Temperature, pressure and time will depend upon the type and thickness of the substrates. Generally, thicker substrates or lower bonding temperatures will require longer bonding times. To achieve optimum performance a cooling step (while applying pressure) directly after the bonding step is recommended.
¹ ‘Pre-lamination’ and ‘Bonding’ temperature refer to the data that is measured in the bond line.
² ‘Pre-lamination’ and ‘Bonding’ pressure refer to the force that is transformed from jig surface directly to the bonding area.
Bonding strength values were obtained under standard laboratory conditions. (Material: etched aluminum test specimen / bonding conditions: temperature = 180 °C; pressure = 10 bar; time = 7 sec).
To reach maximum bonding strength surfaces should be clean and dry. Storage conditions according to tesa HAF® shelf life concept.
