tesa® ACXplus

The innovative, double-sided tesa® ACXplus acrylic core adhesive tapes are based on a globally unique, particularly eco-friendly technology.

The highly viscoelastic core of the tapes is the key for properties that withstand even the most adverse conditions and provide an ideal fixing method for ALUCOBOND® composite materials.

The tapes consist of a high-performance acrylic adhesive system and is primarily characterised by the following features:

  • Bonding power
  • Stress dissipation
  • Temperature and weather resistance

3M Tape

High Performance adhesives

3M tapes utilise high performance adhesives which have excellent long-term holding power. The peel adhesion and tensile holding power of tapes in the VHB family are significantly higher than typical pressure sensitive tapes.

3M tapes are ideal for bonding ALUCOBOND®.

Note: Adhesives and sealants do not adhere to the plastic core.

Apply to the aluminium cover sheet only.

ALUCOBOND® composite milling machine.

Festool’s aluminium composite milling machine is the perfect solution for working with ALUCOBOND® composite materials. Precise, neat and quick – creating a faultless
V-groove is easy, even on building sites.

Main benefits include;

  • Precise routing depth and exact maintenance of depth thanks to the changeable follower roller straight, exact cuts, combined with work piece protection through the guide rails and the use of the adjustment aid
  • Rapid routing progress and a neat routing pattern thanks to the carbide-tipped blade cutter.
  • Mobility on the building site and easy transportation because of its lightness
  • Rapid adaptation to different material thicknesses through the simple change of the follower roller.
  • High durability and ruggedness with the high-quality components and original Festool accessories
  • Machine protection and long service life through MMC electronics with integrated smooth start-up and current and temperature control.
