tesa® 50050 High load

High strength TPP reinforcement tape

Product description

tesa® 50050 High Load combines a tensilised polypropylene backing with a strong synthetic rubber adhesive.

Intelligent tesa technology and innovative raw materials provide a tape with doubled tensile stiffness compared to standard strapping tapes. The tape concept combines superior tensile strength with an excellent flexibility and (in contrast to glass fibre tapes) bend resistance.

Main applications

The product is especially recommended for reinforcement of various cardboard handles (e.g. flap and top hole handles). Additionally tesa High Load is a perfect choice for the reinforcement of heavy packaging loads against burst out ("elephant footing").
