Adhesive tape meets UP Racing needs

Adhesive tape meets UP Racing needs

When the University of Portsmouth's UP Racing team approached Tesa UK with a view to the company supporting them in their 2015 Formula Student project, they received an enthusiastic and positive response from one of the world's leading tape manufacturers.

Project manager of UP Racing, Adam White, liaised with the Tesa team, and tesa 4651 - a powerful high quality acrylic coated cloth tape - was supplied for use in a multitude of applications. The tape was utilised on the edging of bodywork, sheet metal and brackets to give them a neat finish with no sharp edges and to attach the wiring loom to the chassis where a cable tie would otherwise be visible. It was also used on the foam driver's seat covering and to attach driver's leg protection, as well as covering bodywork fasteners and cable management.

In addition to providing a strong bond, tesa 4651 cloth tape also offered excellent strength and durability, leaving no sticky residue or markings on paint or bodywork and delivering a smart surface finish.

The 2015 racing season proved to be a great launch platform for UP Racing in its first full year.
