Cloth Tapes

tesa offers a broad range of cloth tapes to meet the demands of many varied applications in industrial applications, as well as home and in the office.

Cloth tapes can be split into different categories based on their construction.

The key features of a cloth tape are: 
1. The mesh count of the backing – the higher the mesh count, the higher the tensile strength.

2. The type of coating: premium cloth tapes and speciality cloth tapes are coated acrylic paste coating – sometimes up to 3 times which provides superior resistance to the effects of weathering and UV light.

3. Adhesive type: natural rubber adhesives are used on all the types of tape. However, for speciality cloth tapes the adhesive is ‘thermoset’ i.e. it is highly cross-linked which gives it a higher temperature resistance.

Cloth Tape vs. Duct Tape

When comparing cloth tape with duct tape, there are certain difference to be found between the two types of adhesives:

  • Cloth tapes are easily removable, while duct tapes are semi-permanent
  • Cloth tapes are often tearable by hand, while duct tapes require tools to be cut
  • While both tapes are waterproof, cloth tape is able to resist high heat temperatures
  • Cloth tapes often have a matte finish, while duct tapes also come in reflective infinishes
  • Duct tapes can be stretched and are more flexible than cloth tapes


Choose the tape that best suits your repair application bsaed on these characteristics.

tesa Australia also offers a range of cloth tapes with specific applications, such as sandblasting tapes and 100 mile an hour tapes.
