Product descriptiontesa® 51960 is a double-sided carpet laying tape. The open side is largely residual-free removable from many surfaces and consists of PP-film with an acrylic adhesive. The different adhesion value is tailor-made for carpet laying applications and guarantees a very high tack on many commonly used surfaces.
tesa® 51960 is most extensively resistant to ageing and plasticisers (no discoloration of PVC or CV-floorings). The side with the higher adhesion is covered with a white liner.
Main applicationsBorder and butt joins of floor coverings based on foam or textile woven backings as well as PVC and CV-floorings on most surfaces.
