Besides fixation, tesa is also developing novel solutions to meet new application requirements including chemical resistance, shock resistance, adhesion to demanding substrates as well as fire performance.
Fire performance requirements include flame resistance and smoke emission, which must be demonstrated by various tests often with specific relevant material. It is important that the flame retardants do not impact key adhesive properties.
