Product information

tesa® 4302

Premium performance paper masking tape up to 160 °C / 320 °F

Product description

tesa® 4302 is a finely creped and conformable paper masking tape, especially suitable for the highest requirements of automotive painting (water- or solvent based paints) followed by oven-drying.

Paints and critical filler systems exhibit excellent adhesion to the backing avoiding any kind of flaking.

tesa® 4302 can be removed from rubber, glass and paint without tearing or leaving adhesive residue. This is particularly remarkable for cold removal after high heat cycles.

Due to its finely creped structure, this tape guarantees sharp-edge finishing.
