Kitchens tend to be difficult places for appliances and the adhesives that hold them together. The average kitchen appliances have to deal with temperature extremes, in industrial kitchens for long periods of time. On top of that, they are often exposed to water, oils, and other liquids.
As a result, the right adhesive for kitchen appliances can be hard to find. But manufacturers have less to worry about thanks to tesa® 7273 MP ACX+.
This tape is made to withstand just about anything. There are a lot of things that make it great for manufacturing. To help illustrate this, let’s take a look at some of the uses for this tape in kitchen appliances.
A great place to start is with refrigerator evaporators. If you’re unfamiliar with evaporators, they are the coils that create the cold temperature in fridges and freezers.
As you can imagine, whatever is used to mount an evaporator is going to be exposed to some serious cold. Intense cold can cause other tapes to contract. This decreases the surface they cover and, as a result, the area of their hold.
tesa® 7273 MP ACX+ stands out from other tapes because it is made with an acrylic foam base. The viscoelastic nature of this base means that the tape is less likely to change shape or size due to changes in temperature.
That reason on its own could be enough to make tesa® 7273 MP ACX+ ideal for evaporator mounting. However, there is even more that makes this a good tape for the job. The pure acrylic adhesive used on the tape can create a strong bond with aluminum and steel.
Considering that many refrigerators and freezers are made of one or both of those materials, tesa® 7273 MP ACX+ could be perfect. Manufacturers won’t have to worry about whether or not the tape will really take hold.
tesa® 7273 MP ACX+ may be able to make the manufacturing of cooling systems in kitchens that much easier and cheaper.
Of course, that’s just one part of a kitchen to consider. There are plenty of other appliances that can be found in just about any kitchen.
For a while now, these appliances have had some kind of display on them. Recently, these displays have become more intricate and in need of protection as these appliances have become more intelligent. Manufacturers need a tape that is thin and can withstand intense heat.
Not many tapes offer the same kind of help with this that tesa® 7273 MP ACX+ can. The thin foam base creates a slim bond that will look clean while holding strong.
Much like with the evaporators, tesa® 7273 MP ACX+ is designed to handle just about any temperature. It can withstand about 100° C for long periods of time and 200° for shorter intervals. This makes it ideal for appliances like ovens, microwaves, or anything else that may need to heat up and stay hot for a while.
Whether you are manufacturing kitchen appliances for industrial or domestic use, tesa® 7273 MP ACX+ should give you the bond you’re looking for. It is strong, flexible, and capable of withstanding extreme temperatures. Plus, it is thin so your finished products will look great too.
