ACXplus by tesa® is the highest-performing double-sided tape that uses a revolutionary acrylic foam core. Even in the most demanding situations, its architecture assures the greatest performance.

An ideal solution

The Multi Purpose (MP) line has the same general features as other products in ACXplus portfolio.

Here’s an overview of some of the benefits:

Extraordinary
viscoelasticity

Outstanding
adhesion properties

Dissipation and
absorption of stress

Thermal elongation of bonded pieces is compensated

Viscoelasticity: ACXplus tapes feature the optimum mix of viscosity and flexibility thanks to the foam core reinforcement. The foam gives it structural stability by allowing it to hold together extraordinarily well. The tape’s acrylic core also gives it a lot of flexibility. Because of this, these tapes are good for mounting and bonding applications.

Adhesion properties: With ACXplus, you can anticipate the greatest results, even when joining surfaces that are different, harsh, and uneven. The tape’s foam parameters make the new ACXplus a great gap-filler.

Dissipation and absorption: These tapes spread stresses throughout the whole bonded region, rather than having singular points of stress that make materials subject to rupture. This increases the product’s quality by making it more impact resistant.

Compensation of the thermal elongation: These foam tapes’ viscoelastic nature allows them to expand and contract in response to temperature variations, which adds to their endurance.

Because of all of these advantages, ACXplus can be used in almost every sector imaginable. tesa acknowledges the versatility of this product family and has created the MP line to make them the ” true all-rounders ” for a larger audience.
