Tesa’s single- and double-sided adhesives tapes — particularly those found in the new ACXplus range — are said to help maximise efficiency in automotive design and manufacturing.

The ACXplus tapes enable the secure and permanent bonding of components to vehicles, according to the company.

The products are also suitable for non-productive automotive applications. During the assembly process, for example, where exterior surfaces are potentially susceptible to damage, products such as Tesa 51134 tape can be applied to ensure component protection.

The range also includes products developed for interior and decorative trims, floor coverings and door panels.

Key benefits

  • Adhesive tapes are claimed to ensure better power to weight ratios and enhanced fuel efficiency.
  • Tapes, used in place of mechanical fixings, provide straightforward methods of application without the need for specialised skills.
  • The use of double-sided tapes can deliver a cleaner, smoother aesthetic on panels, badges, trims and emblems.
  • The ACXplus range is resilient to external factors such as moisture, ultraviolet radiation and temperature fluctuations — all of which are important for mounting exterior parts.
  • A special curing chemistry is said to create a high-performing resistance structure.
  • The tapes manage stress dissipation very well thanks to their ‘viscoelastic’ properties.
