Fine Crepe Paper Masking Tape for Spray Painting

Product description

tesa ® 4317 is a thin and flexible masking tape comprised of a fine crepe paper backing and a natural rubber adhesive. The masking tape is suitable for a wide range of general masking applications without or with subsequent oven-drying up to a temperature of 80°C. tesa ® 4317 is also resistant to wet sanding. The natural rubber adhesive provides an excellent adhesion to multiple surfaces, like metal, rubber, glass and plastic.
