tesa® 51006

PET cloth tape for bundling and wire protection of automotive harnesses against abrasion

Product description

tesa® 51006 is a PET cloth tape with a rubber-based adhesive providing reliable abrasion protection of automotive harnesses. The high initial tack, a constant unwind force and the flexible backing enable smooth and efficient application in the car body.

The high adhesion and good flag resistance ensure secure harness bundling. Its properties are optimized for manual application. The temperature resistance depends on the insulation material.

Main features:
  • Resistant to abrasion
  • High initial tack and adhesion
  • Optimized for manual application
  • Flag-resistant
  • Can withstand environmental influences
  • Constant unwind force – optimized for manual application
  • Aging-resistant
  • Flame-retardant
  • Flexible and smooth

Application Fields

tesa® 51006 has been specially designed for bundling and wire protection against abrasion. The main application field is the engine compartment of a car, with demanding temperature-related and environmental conditions.
