Product information

tesa® 4215

PVC-free fineline and overmasking tape for design painting in the automotive paint shop

Product description

tesa® 4215 is a high-quality PVC-free fineline tape with a rubber adhesive. It is designed for applications where sharp color edges for two-tone designs are required. The PE backing of tesa® 4215 leads to an overall flexible behavior of the tape, thus allowing application to narrow curves and difficult 3-D shapes.

The temperature resistance of 120°C/1h allows the use of tesa® 4215 in medium-temperature applications, such as car bumper masking.

Standardized and customized applicators for tesa® 4215 are available to ensure efficient tape application.

Main features:
  • Very flexible tape for narrow curves and difficult 3-D shapes
  • Residue-free removal up to drying temperatures of 120°C
  • Easy unwinding, also suitable for overmasking
  • Halogen-free tape design
