Tesa has added a range of premium filament tapes to its high-strength filament tape offering. The premium tapes offer higher levels of tensile strength and abrasion resistance as well as tear resistance and high adhesion properties.

All tapes in the filament range — Tesa 4590, Tesa 4591, Tesa 4595, Tesa 4597 and Tesa 4599 — offer good tear resistance, which is vital in fixing, securing and sealing goods in applications such as palletising, bundling, end tabbing, transport securing and carton sealing.

If the tapes are damaged on one side, the backing will not break and objects held will remain tight and intact.

The general-purpose 4590 and 4591 tapes are suitable for use in room temperatures of less than 40°C.
