  • tesa® Product Rangepuls

    tesa® is one of the world’s leading manufacturers of adhesive tape with products for industrial and professional applications..

    TESA Tapes Supplier

    Austen Direct offer a range of tesa® tapes on our website, including Double Sided Tapes, Foam Tapes, Rubber Tapes, Packaging and Masking Tapes

    There are many applications for double sided adhesive tapes and they offer many advantages. For example, there is no need to allow for curing before the next production stage potentially improving productivity.

    tesa® double sided tapes are available with a variety of carriers, such as filmic (e.g. polyester, polypropylene or PVC); PE, PE/EVA or PUR foam, cloth, non-woven tissue) and transfer tapes (no carrier). These are combined with different adhesives each with their own specific characteristics. Modified and pure acrylic adhesives as well as natural rubber and synthetic rubber adhesives are all used.

    tesa® have a speciality range of products suitable for the Door and Window Industry, and we cn provide you with these even if not listed online. Please contact us for more details.

    High performance double sided tapes with acrylic adhesives are suitable for outdoor applications and offer very good resistance to UV light, water and ageing.

    tesa® has an extensive range of masking tapes which cover many applications including general purpose masking, wet painting, stencilling and sandblasting to high temperature masking for applications such as powder coating and printed circuit board manufacture.

    Generally the nature of the application, the paint or coating system and temperature at which it dries or cures determines the required characteristics a masking tape, such as the type of paper backing used e.g. creped, flatback or filmic, as well as the adhesive.

    Rubber adhesives are primarily used but when temperatures reach above 160°C a silicone adhesive is required.

    For some masking applications such as sandblasting, temperature resistance isn’t a prerequisite. In this case a strong, thick backing which is resistant to an abrasive under high pressure is vital; but the masking tapes must also be able to be removed cleanly, without leaving residues and without damaging the substrate it is masking.

  • Moldex Bitrex Fit Testingpuls

    Fit Testing - The Basics

    Introduction

    Where RPE is used, it must be able to provide adequate protection for individual wearers. RPE can't protect the wearer if it leaks. A major cause of leaks is poor fit – tight-fitting facepieces need to fit the wearer’s face to be effective.

    As people come in all sorts of shapes and sizes it is unlikely that one particular type or size of RPE facepiece will fit everyone. Fit testing will ensure that the equipment selected is suitable for the wearer.The Moldex Bitrex Fit Testing Kit allows you/us to do that.

    Austen Instant Tapes Ltd will ensure that you have the correct face masks for the environment of your employees

    What you need to do

    The best time to do fit testing is at the initial selection stage, when individual users can be given a choice of adequate models of RPE. You should ensure that the make, model, type and size of facepiece that they wore when they had their successful fit test is made available for their use. If an employee wears more than one type of tight-fitting facepiece, then each type of facepiece should be fit tested.

    You need to ensure that you Fit Test annually and keep records of the tests performed

    How to do it

    RPE fit testing should be conducted by a competent person - you should take steps to ensure that the person who carries out the fit test is appropriately trained, qualified and experienced, and is provided with appropriate information to undertake each particular task. 

    Here at Austen Instant Tapes Ltd we are trained to perform Fit Tests on-site to ensure you conform to the new legislation. Please call 01892 832141 to discuss your specific requirements

  • Surface Preparationpuls

    Surface preparation is by far the most important factor, after using the correct adhesive, in achieving a strong and lasting bond between two surfaces. Virtually all unexpected bond failures we have heard about have been traced back to inefficiencies in this area. There are three stages to surface preparation; 1; Remove any loose contamination. This will involve using various solvents and abrasives, depending on the condition of the substrate 2; Key the surface if possible, using a micro-abrasive such as Scotchbrite 3; Prime the surface if necessary using a primer or specialised surface treatment. REMEMBER the adhesive sticks to the SURFACE of the material. If the surface is greasy, or dusty, or loose filaments, or flaking off, the bond will fail.

  • VHB Double Sided Tapespuls

    A wide range of exceptionally strong double-sided tapes.

    3M VHB (Very High Bond) is acknowledged as the strongest adhesive tape variety in the world. It is now used in a vast range of applications where strength, reliability, and long term performance is required. 3M VHB is constructed from a strip of pure acrylic adhesive made to 3M's proprietary formula. This adhesive has the ability to stick extremely well to most surfaces. The adhesive will not become brittle or lose its strength over many tens of years and has a wide tolerance of temperatures.

    As the adhesive never hardens it is able to deform and stretch to a remarkable degree without the bond breaking. This is especially useful for joints between different materials, where one material may expand or contract more than the other. The flexibility also allows VHB to be used in applications where the joint may be subject to shock loads and vibration such as in vehicle body and aerospace applications.

    In many cases VHB can outperform conventional mechanical fixings such as screws and rivets. This is because the joint can be made without drilling holes in the surfaces to be joined. The load on the joint is spread across a relatively large area, thus minimising the chance of fatigue cracking around a small point. The VHB™ range comprises a wide variety of thicknesses, colours, and special types of tape.

    These tapes are often converted into self adhesive shapes and gaskets for use in component manufacture. Please contact us if you need to discuss any special applications. The VHB tape guide shows the standard range and the most popular applications for VHB™.

    Please contact us if you would like to discuss your particular job -we have decades of experience in supplying tapes for industrial uses.

    IT IS VERY IMPORTANT THAT SURFACES TO BE BONDED ARE CLEAN AND GREASE FREE. PLEASE SEE OUR SURFACE PREPARATION GUIDE FOR DETAILS

  • Waterproof Cloth Tapespuls

    Waterproof cloth tape goes under many names; 'Gaffer tape', 'Duck tape', 'Duct tape', 'Waterproof Cloth tape', 'PCL tape', 'Tank tape', 'Riggers tape', '100 mile an hour tape' etc. Originally used by the military for sealing ammunition boxes it has become ubiquitous in almost every kind of industry and has even been used on the moon. It is made by coating a linen cloth with a very tacky white rubber adhesive on one side and then laminating a polythene film to the other side. It comes in a variety of grades and finishes according to the intended use. Due to the precise nature of the business of our customers, our website only lists our mainstream products.
