All product features

Product description

tesa HAF® 9402 is a reactive heat activated structural bonding film based on phenolic resin and nitrile rubber. This amber double sided tape has no backing. It is protected by a strong paper liner and can easily be slit and die cut.
At room temperature tesa HAF® 9402 is not tacky. It is activated by heat and starts to become tacky at 90°C for pre-lamination. In a second application step heat and pressure is applied over a certain period of time.

Additional Info

1. Pre-lamination:
tesa HAF® 9402 is laminated to the first substrate before curing. For this process we recommend a temperature between 90°C and 140°C.
2. Bonding:
The bonding conditions temperature, pressure and time depend on the application. Following parameters can be regarded as a guideline:
Friction linings for clutch discs:
  • Temperature: 180 – 230°C
  • Pressure: > 6 bar
  • Time: 3 min

3. Tempering (optional)
To reach the maximum bonding strength the bonded parts can be tempered at 180 - 230°C for 30 - 60 min without pressure.
Bonding strength values were obtained under standard laboratory conditions. Value is guaranteed clearance limit checked with each production batch (Material: Etched aluminium test specimen / Bonding conditions: Temp. = 120°C; p = 10 bar; t = 8min).
To reach maximum bonding strength surfaces should be clean and dry. Storage conditions according to tesa HAF® shelf life concept.
