Introducing tesa® flameXtinct

Offering flame retardant and halogen-free mounting assortment with proven reliability to ensure safety where it matters most

To ensure health and asset protection, fire safety regulations are of special importance in a variety of industries, such as aviation; trains; marine; building and construction; elevators; automotive; and e-mobility[1].

These regulations define precise standards for manufacturing processes and all integrated materials—self-adhesive tapes used for mounting various components, for example. The use of flame retardants is an essential part of fire standards as it helps to delay or extinguish fire development; provide more time for firefighters to intervene; and save lives and assets.

Flame retardants can help prevent the spread of fire

tesa® flameXtinct assortment complies with flame retardancy standards whereby all tapes are halogen-free, which means less smoke and gas toxicity in the event of a fire. This is in line with international regulations that strive to restrict the use of certain halogenated products in the future since the majority of fire-related fatalities is caused by inhalation of toxic fumes.
