Adhesive tapes meet aerospace demands
Tesa 4965, a transparent double-sided tape consisting of a PET backing and a tackified acrylic adhesive developed for especially demanding applications involving heavy stress, high temperatures and critical substrates, is finding increasing acceptance in the aviation sector for permanent mounting of parts and panels.
In the aviation industry Tesa 4965 is now used to permanently secure metal or plastic parts - the tackified acrylic composition delivers a secure bond and in addition, offers U/V, ageing and moisture resistance to meet the demanding specification of manufacturers, along with long-term temperature resistance at 100°C, short-term at 200°C.
Panel mounting often requires very high adhesive strength over large areas and here Tesa 4965's capacity to bond either aluminium or plastic onto a range of surfaces including ABS, rubber/EPDM and LSE offers comprehensive coverage of the range of applications. The product is approved for use in the sector, having passed vertical bunsen burner and flammability tests carried out by SGS-CSTC in relation to cargo compartment, cabin and miscellaneous materials.
Tesa products in the UK are all sold under the company's Tesa cohesion programme which guarantees a customer care programme that covers people, products, processes and performance.
