Adhesives are increasingly being adopted in the aviation sector where they face heavy stress, high temperatures and challenging substrates. Tesa 4965 is one option for permanent adhesive bonding on metal and plastic parts. It is suitable for panel mounting, which requires high strength over large areas with a variety of substrates. Tesa 4965 is a double-sided tape with a PET backing and tackified acrylic adhesive. Like other adhesives used in the aviation sector, Tesa 4965 passed vertical Bunsen burner and flammability tests carried out by SGS-CSTC, with requirements for burn length, flame time and drip flame time. Tesa 4965 provides long-term temperature resistance up to 100ºC, and short-term temperature resistance up to 200ºC. It also provides ultraviolet, moisture and aging resistance.
