tesa ACXplus Double-Sided Tape [Foamed Modified Acrylic] is a high-performance double-sided mounting tape that is intended for use in permanent bonding applications in both indoor and outdoor environments. Characterized by its exceptional bonding power, tesa ACXplus uses an aggressive acrylic adhesive and deploys a specially designed system that ensures optimal wetting during application. Bonds are sturdy and reliable due to the viscoelastic properties of the tape, which allow it to relax mechanical forces when under load yet retain the integrity of the initial mounting position. This allows the tape to accommodate applied loads such as wind, snow, and the permanent load of bonded components with ease. The tape’s excellent resistance to both cold and hot temperatures, various weather conditions, moisture, and oxidation further increase its reliability in any environment.
Excellent for bonding non-like materials in situations where traditional fasteners such as nails, screws, welds, rivets, or liquid glue may cause damage to the materials being used or will not provide sufficient adhesion. Can be used to join aluminum to steel, steel to glass, and in many other instances where forming bonds may be challenging due to substrate constraints.

Question & Answers
hot melt rubber (synthetic)
Offers the widest range of application flexibility available. Exhibits excellent processing performance whether manually or automatically applied. Has superior tensile strength, adhesion properties and holding force which ensures consistent, reliable seals. Hot melt adhesive will bond faster to a surface which is referred to as quick-grab or quick-stick. It typically has higher tack (will feel stickier to the touch), but is also softer. It has lower heat resistance, shear resistance, and sometimes UV resistance than an acrylic adhesive. NOTE: it is called hot melt because the adhesive is applied hot by the manufacturer and then hardens as it cools (you do not need to apply heat to the tape yourself).
Properties are similar to that of hot melt rubber, but natural rubber often holds where other adhesives won't (recycled fibers, dust, cold, heat and heavy loads). It provides good overall adhesion and moisture resistance.
Offer excellent performance, especially for applications in temperatures less than 40°F and greater then 120°F. It provides excellent clarity, has high shear strength, is usually more permanent/durable even when exposed to moisture, and it ages well over extended periods in fluorescent and sunlight. Since it remains clear for the life of the application and does not yellow over time it is ideal for applications such as sealing white cartons. While it has good initial adhesion it does take 24-48 hours to cure and to achieve its maximum bond strength (has gradual adhesion buildup). Another difference between hot melt rubber and acrylic adhesive is if you fold tape over making the two adhesive sides touch the acrylic adhesive will remain attached to the carrier (e.g. paper, film) while a hot melt adhesive will stick to itself and pull off of the carrier. It is the best choice for clarity, UV resistance and aging characteristics.
Is great for extreme temperature applications since silicone adhesive can work in continuous operating temperatures from -100°F to 500°F. They also exhibit good chemical resistance, retain electrical properties, and remove cleanly with little or no residue.
Zinc oxide based adhesive formula is a skin-friendly adhesive which is commonly used on sports medicine tapes.
Thickness, AKA caliper or gauge, refers to the distance from one surface of a tape backing, or adhesive, to the other.
1 mil = 1/1000 of an inch
Examples: 1/16 inch = 62.5 mils; 1/32 inch = 31.25 mils
