Tesa has launched a range of double-sided foam tapes — 62508, 62510 and 62512 — for solar panel applications. The tapes are designed to optimise solar frame mounting and provide high strength for reliable bonding performance.

The double-sided foam tapes are built around a conformable PE-foam core with low foam compression rate.

The tapes provide a secure bond where good ageing resistance to environmental influences such as UV, humidity, moisture, water, temperature (up to 80°C) and shear resistance is required.

The tape carrier is based on a closed-cell foam, which allows for optimal usage in the bonding of irregular and uneven surfaces, the compensation of different rates of thermal expansion of dissimilar materials, high shock resistance, dampening effects and high bond strength.

In comparison with processes involving the use of welding or rivets to mount frames, Tesa’s double-sided foam tapes offer a cleaner, quicker and more cost-efficient alternative that is just as effective, according to the company.
