Tesa UK’s 4651 adhesive tape has played an important role in Lizzy Yarnold’s Olympic gold medal win in the skeleton event in Sochi.
Tesa’s adhesive tape is taking the place of conventional joining and fastening methods in much of the automotive industry, where there is a premium being put on manufacturers to design and produce ever lighter, more efficient and more aerodynamic vehicles.
Tesa is helping the British skeleton team to compete in the winter sport event — which sees competitors in a face-up prone position just inches from the surface while accelerating up to speeds of 90mph — by providing the Tesa 4651 tape, which is used for many parts of the skeleton sleds.
Tesa is offering a range of double-sided tapes that are said to be clean, light and strong, to equally distribute stress across a bond area and to offer high resistance to temperatures and different weather conditions.
Tesa has announced that its ACXplus adhesive tape ranges have meet Underwriters Laboratories (UL) requirements to reach the UL 746C rating, which sees them classified as suitable for use in electrical equipment, particularly in outdoor applications, where parts may be exposed to extreme temperatures and conditions.
