Double Sided Cloth Tapes
Cloth tapes are very good for bonding to rough surfaces and can be removed quickly and cleanly after use. The cloth carrier offers resistance to tearing, yet can itself be torn by hand for easy application.
Double sided cloth tapes are very good for bonding to rough surfaces such as carpets as the cloth carrier is conformable and able to take a high adhesive coat weight. We use either a natural rubber adhesive, as found on tesa 4964, or a synthetic rubber adhesive as used on tesa 4934 or tesa 4939.
Applications for Cloth Tapes
The long, natural rubber polymer chains in the adhesive used for tesa 4964 make this double sided cloth tape ideal for applications such as carpet laying as the tape can be removed quickly and cleanly after use. The cloth carrier offers a resistance to tearing yet itself is hand-tearable. tesa 4939 offers similar properties from its differential (different amount of adhesive on either side of the carrier) synthetic rubber adhesive.
tesa double sided cloth tapes are recommended for internal applications only as the natural rubber and synthetic rubber adhesives used will break down under exposure to weathering and UV light.
(The removability needs to be tested and cannot be guaranteed as there are many influences which are beyond our control. Usage on natural stone is not recommended).
