tesa® 4578

General purpose cross filament tape

Product description

tesa® 4578 is a bidirectional filament tape based on a polypropylene film laminated to polyester filaments.

The synthetic rubber adhesive system ensures a secure bond to various substrates, even to non-polar surfaces like PE and PP. The tape also exhibits excellent adhesion to a variety of corrugated and solid board surfaces.

Its flexible fibres show a very good longitudinal and transverse tensile strength including resistance against tearing and breaking when bent.
