Masking Tape and Surface Protection Tape
Masking & protecting surfaces
tesa has an extensive range of masking tapes which cover many applications including general purpose masking, wet painting, stencilling and sandblasting to high temperature masking applications such as powder coating and printed circuit board manufacture. Generally the nature of application of the paint or coating system and temperature at which dries or cures determines the required characteristics a masking tape, such as the type of paper backing used e.g. creped, flatback or filmic, as well as the adhesive. Rubber adhesives are primarily used but when temperatures reach above 160°C a silicon adhesive is required. For some applications such as sandblasting, temperature resistance isn’t a prerequisite. In this case a strong, thick backing which is resistant to an abrasive under high pressure is vital; but the masking tapes must also be able to be removed cleanly, without leaving residues and without damaging the substrate it is masking.
Surface Protection Tapes:
Whether for temporary or long term protection of surfaces tesa has a protection tape to meet even the most stringent requirements. For example, tesa® 50530
is UV resistant for up to 9 months. At the other end of the scale, tesa® 4848
is perfect for temporary protection of metals and other surfaces for up to 4 weeks.
All tesa masking tapes
and surface protection tapes are designed to be able to be removed without leaving adhesive residues provided the correct tape for the application has been used.
