tesa® 4244 PV2

Highly adhesive fineline tape for design painting

Product description

tesa® 4244 PV2 is a soft PVC tape with a natural rubber adhesive for fineline masking applications. In contrast to other soft PVC tapes from the tesa® masking assortment, it offers higher tensile strength, allowing a very reliable demasking performance without tape breakage.

Furthermore, tesa® 4244 PV2 possesses a higher adhesive coating weight, thus allowing safe bonding to rough-textured or uneven surfaces. The temperature resistance of 120°C/248°F per 1h allows the use of tesa® 4244 PV2 in medium-temperature applications, such as bumper masking.

Standardized and customized applicators for tesa® 4244 PV2 are available to ensure efficient tape application.

Main features:
  • Temperature resistance of up to 140°C/284°F per 1h
  • Conformability with the dimensional change during oven drying
  • Good conformability with multidimensional surfaces
  • Edge does not lift off and residue-free removal

Main applications

tesa® 4244 PV2 is suitable for various types of masking applications.

Example applications are:
• Car bumper masking applications requiring high tensile strengths
• Masking applications with rough-textured and uneven surfaces

To ensure the highest performance possible, our aim is to fully understand your application (including the substrates involved) in order to provide the right product recommendation.
