Product Details Supplier Info More products

Tesa has produced a range of adhesive tapes designed to offer higher performance for the flexographic industry. It has introduced an advanced specification of its Printer’s Friend tape to aid specific industrial print production processes.

Tesa 4563 and Tesa 4863 grip tapes provide improved adhesion to rollers on production lines. They are rubber-coated fabric tapes with excellent adhesive characteristics, with a surface that is highly resistant to sticky substances yet provides a reliable non-slip effect on smooth surfaces.

In addition, Tesa 4863 embossed grip tape has a pimpled surface to maximise its resistance to the clogging action of sticky substances.

Both tapes are suitable for roller-covering applications; in many cases a new covering may be applied without removing the rollers from the machine.

Key benefits

  • Both tapes offer excellent grip
  • They can repel surfaces used in the process (adhesives or inks)
  • They are highly resistant to wear
  • They are easily removable
  • They offer high temperature resistance.
