October 8th, 2019
From the origins in developing adhesive tape for medical purposes in 1890 to the giant of building industry adhesive technology they are today, tesa has always been an innovator.
With an assortment encompassing over 7000 different product solutions, including a specialised range engineered for the professional building industry, tesa is the market defining manufacturer of adhesive tape. Originating in Germany, with over a century of experience in manufacturing industrial tapes and self-adhesive tapes for all applications, the tesa team has a strong perception of quality and is always on the lookout for new innovations and new ways to build strong bonds – in both their product offerings, and with the design and architecture industries.
The uniquely designed adhesive tapes from tesa have been proven time and time again to provide security and flexibility in design and durable bonding, meaning faster processes from top to bottom.
In 2019, the Building Industry is changing. Trends like prefabrication and modularization are driving the market, offering new challenges to designers, as well as new opportunities. The broad product range of tesa’s innovative adhesive tape solutions, technical support and know-how can help manage these challenges. Adhesive tapes are an invisible yet inescapable part of building and design, even if it’s not something you might consider too deeply in your process, but as tesa shows, you should.
tesa develop their tapes with specific design advantages in mind – freedom in design, more efficient production processes and “invisible” and non-damaging mounting, eliminating the need for obtrusive screws or rivets. As the trend towards tape over screws continues, tesa continues to invest and research new technologies in adhesive technologies, such as their new interior fit out range.
Windows and doors in particular can benefit from tesa’s adhesive systems – door panels, glass glazing and decorative elements can be easily and securely bonded, to metal, other sheets of glass, or any material, reducing time in a secure way. This technology can also benefit mirrors, wall panels and even reinforcement bars in elevators or lifts.
Beyond structural and practical solutions, the adhesive solutions from tesa are equally suited to home and office interior applications, from securing partition walls, carpets, furniture, heated or chilled ceilings as well as wall cladding, and self-adhesive air and water proofing systems.
Whether you are designing bathroom fit-outs, façade systems, extruding profiles, developing window systems or looking for waterproofing solutions, tesa has the adhesive solution and technical expertise to make the process as simple and painless as possible.
