Tesa ACXplus, the tape range whose viscoelastic properties enable it to bond dissimilar materials, has demonstrated its fire-retardant properties, according to RST (Rail System Testing Gmbh) prescribed test methods.

Tesa submitted ACXplus7078 in 2mm thickness, which was examined according to DIN 54837 in its evaluation under DIN 5510 part 2. It passed the test.

During the test the lower edge of a tape sample, hung vertically, was exposed to a gas burner flame in a combustion box for a period of three minutes and the results evaluated within three categories: flammability, smoke development and the capacity of forming drops.

When the flame was removed, the sample was monitored for a further two minutes to determine Tesa ACXplus7 078’s performance in all three of those categories.

RST laboratories test engineering samples, prototypes and other products in line with standards and regulations recognised internationally to govern product acceptability on grounds of thermal resistance, flammability and fire behaviour throughout the transport sector.
