tesa has a broad range of adhesive cloth tapes to meet the demands of many varied applications in Industrial applications which require high temperature resistancy and excellent tensile strength as well as usage in extreme temperature and climatic conditions,  in the home and office where you need to carry out temporary repairs, such as a broken broom handle, and outdoor activities when you have a tear in your tent or need to bundle camping gear together to stop rattles and unwanted noise

Duct tapes – the universal helpers – are especially suitable for general purpose and temporary applications. They have a relatively low tensile strength and only limited resistance to weathering.

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.
