Tapes for Noise Vibration Harshness (NVH) and Buzz Squeak Rattle (BSR)
Effective adhesive tape solutions for smooth and quiet journeys
Unwanted noises while driving are highly annoying and unpleasant. BSR ( Buzz ,squeak and rattle ) can be a real problem as it affects consumers perception of the quality or value of the vehicle.
With its BSR assortment, designed in conjunction with many vehicle manufactureers, tesa Automotive offers a variety of damping and anti-squeak products to eliminate noises right from the very beginning of vehicle assembly.
tesa can also offer these in customer specific sizes and formats, including rolls, die-cuts and with dispensers.
Our application experts are available to assist in designing and developing the best individual solution
Features and Benefits of tesa Automotive BSR Prevention tapes:
For the purpose of noise and abrasion prevention, shock absorbance, cushioning, sealing, insulating and vibration damping, the tesa Automotive BSR assortment offers:
- High adhesion power to various surfaces to ensure reliable adherence throughout the vehicle lifetime
- A comprehensive assortment of high-performance tape backings to offer a quick and reliable solution for each different BSR issue
- Application optimised die cuts, rolls and dispensers to assist an easy application
tesa NVH and BSR Application Toolbox
What is NVH?
problems can be divided into two categories. Firstly, noise caused by buzz
, rattle and vibration
, airborne noise or squeaks between adjoining components. Secondly, sealing, damping and bridging: sealing against water and dust leakage, bridging of gaps between component parts and damping of shock and vibration
. The table below summarises the key issues, the type of tape backing required and respective properties.
In support of our NVH
assortment we can supply a special tesa NVH
Application Toolbox to key partners. This includes samples of our complete assortment in rolls and die-cuts, scissors and ring-cutters and technical data.
