tesa features tapes with silicone systems

September 15, 2010

The products were developed with specialty masking and holding applications in mind.

tesa tape is showcasing at Labelexpo two recently introduced new specialty products with silicone adhesive systems designed for temporary masking applications. These new products – tesa 50650 and tesa 50600 – join the company’s masking product line that ranges from general-purpose to highly-specialized masking tapes. 



tesa 50650 and teas 50600 were developed with specialty masking and holding applications in mind. Constructed of a durable polyester film backing coated with a silicone adhesive, these tapes are designed to perform well in harsh and demanding conditions, including withstanding temperatures of up to 428 degrees Fahrenheit for up to 30 minutes. The resilient polyester backing is resistant to abrasions, as well as to chemical and thermal elements, and the tapes’ edges are capable of producing sharp paint lines.

Coupled with the polyester backing, the silicone adhesive provides a delicate balance between the right adhesion power for the job and clean, residue-free removal upon job completion. The characteristics of tesa 50650 and tesa 50600 make them ideal masking and temporary holding systems for demanding applications, such as: masking during powder coating applications, composite bonding, protection and removal of epoxies during bonding processes, and temporarily joining layers of film and fabric during composite manufacturing.
