tesa® 62957 optimises working practices and applications in sub-zero environments

1 min read

tesa® has introduced a new double-sided tape equipped with a high strength PE foam and acrylic adhesive to deliver superior cold processing characteristics. Tackling issues associated with using pressure-sensitive adhesive tapes in cold environments where insufficient levels of tack often result in significantly lowering performance levels, tesa® 62957’s unique formulation delivers high strength and excellent ageing resistance to different substrates at temperatures as low as -10˚C.

Characterised by exceptionally strong adhesion with an excellent initial tack at low temperatures, tesa® 62957 also provides excellent protection against harsh substances and environments.

Designed specifically for customers operating under cold temperatures in unheated environments or on construction sites, the product’s extensive list of properties including UV, water and ageing resistance as well as sealing, gap filling, noise and shock absorbing properties enhances performance on a wide range of adhesive tape applications.

Trims and profiles (plastic extrusions), stiffeners, reinforcement bars, window skirting trims and shelf edge labelling systems are just some of the types of bonding and mounting applications that can benefit from the tape’s impressive performance.

As cold weather can impact construction activities, builders and contractors are increasingly interested in materials and processes that remain effective in a wide range of conditions, including colder temperatures.

The tape’s excellent wettability and high initial bond strength enables peel adhesion to be achieved at -10˚C in less than three days, offering potential to increase the construction time window and facilitating greater continuity of working patterns in cold conditions.

Adhesive tapes offer many advantages over the traditional types of fastening and fixing methods typically used within industrial applications. Lightweight, strong and capable of delivering greater aesthetics, they are also easy to apply and can improve production speeds and processes.

tesa® 62957 demonstrates how advanced acrylic technologies used in pressure-sensitive tapes are evolving to provide a range of advanced and measurable benefits to operations in cold environments, an area where previously, no other sustainable solutions have been available.
