Vehicle monitoring technology provider Traffic Technology has introduced the Tesa ACXplus 706x series of acrylic double-sided adhesive tapes into its manufacturing process for an interactive cycle awareness sign.

Tesa’s Converting Centre, based in Hamburg and employing more than 100 staff, is, the company says, a strategically important part of its automotive business unit.
