Strongest ever filament tapes launched

Tesa has launched a range of high strength filament tapes suited to a variety of industrial applications, from palletising and bundling to end tabbing, carton sealing, transport securing and fixing.

The ability to resist breakage or tearing under tensile stress is one of the most important and measured properties of materials used in fixing, securing and sealing goods.

Offering excellent tear resistance, the new tapes are also the strongest ever to be produced by tesa. Even if the tape is damaged on one side, the backing will not break and all importantly, the tape will hold objects tight and intact.

General purpose tapes, tesa 4591 and tesa 4590, are the first products to be launched. These PET film based tapes are suitable for use in room conditions <40°C and offer high backing stability and easier unwinding features in combination with a tensile strength up to 250 N/cm.

The premium tapes, due for launch later in the year, combine a high tensile strength up to 1000N/cm with unique adhesive properties designed to fulfil many challenging requirements, making tesa's tapes an essential tool where safety matters.
