As an alternative to screws, rivets, glues and adhesive, ACXplus double-sided tape from Tesa is said to offer high adhesion, a seamless finish and corrosion prevention in a range of applications including the bonding of powder-coated materials.

Suitable for indoor and outdoor applications, the tape enables constructive bonding, which is defined by both viscous and elastic performance. ACXplus can cope with the differential thermal properties of substrates to be bonded as well as uneven or irregular surfaces.

ACXplus 706x is suitable for use in bonding powder-coated materials, providing a high-strength bond for what are normally heavy materials.

In addition, ACXplus707x can be used to bond panels before they are put through the powder-coating process.

Key benefits

  • ACXplus tape is quick and easy to apply, speeding up the manufacturing and assembly process.
  • The elimination of drill holes means there is no risk of corrosion and better aesthetics can be achieved.
  • The double-sided tape enables equal distribution of the stress areas of the bond, meaning no weak points are created.
  • Joins using the double-sided tape are less likely to rattle.
  • The tape compensates for different rates of thermal expansion and contraction of different substrates.
  • The tape is designed to absorb shock and vibration.
