Product information

tesa® 4302

High performance paper masking tape up to 160 °C

Product description

tesa® 4302 is a finely crêped and conformable paper masking tape, especially suitable for the highest requirements of automotive paintwork (water- or solvent based paints) followed by oven-drying.

Paints and even critical filler systems adhere to the backing avoiding any kind of flaking.

tesa® 4302 can be removed from rubber, glass and paint without tearing or leaving adhesive residues even for cold removal after high heat cycles.

Due to its finely crêped structure, this tape guarantees a sharp edged finish.
