tesa® 51008

Packaging film made of Polyethylene (PE)

Product description

tesa® 51008 is a packaging film based on a polyethylene backing (PE). This makes the mounting of PE-films and recycling afterwards possible.

With its special PE-backing tesa® 51008 is very user friendly because it can be torn by hand.

The high tack is achieved by a natural rubber adhesive guaranteeing instantaneous adhesion and a high tensile load. For small widths an age stability of max. 6 months is guaranteed.
