Product description

Our fabric tape tesa® 53949 consists of a PE-extruded fabric fitted with an adhesive made from natural rubber. As it is available in 3 matt product variants, it is particularly well suited for applications when reflections have to be avoided.

The fabric tape provides a good adhesive strength (even on rough surfaces), is light-absorbing, can be torn off by hand and can be removed effortlessly. Furthermore, it is abrasion-proof, smooth, flexible, water-repellent and weather-proof so that it is well suited for outdoor applications.
