Check for damage

01Check splitting strip


The splitting strips are delicate parts of the product.
Make sure the splitting strip is not damaged before you apply tesa® EasySplice.

Don't apply to full width

02Don’t apply tape to the full width of the roll


When you apply tesa® EasySplice, leave a gap of about one thumb’s width to the edge of the roll, to avoid exposed adhesive running through the machine.


03Use a squeegee


Always use a squeegee when applying tesa® EasySplice to avoid premature opening and flying snippets. 

Trim edges

04Trim the edges


To avoid damage to the web, trim the paper’s edges on both sides of tesa® EasySplice to avoid air pockets underneath the unsecured edges.

EasySplice: Check Length of Flag

05Check length of flag of the expiring web


Make sure that the flag is approximately as long as the distance between the bumper/contact roller and the knife.
This will help to have the best bond between two webs. 

Use wider width

06Use a wider tesa® EasySplice for high speeds


For higher machine speeds, we recommend using tesa® EasySplice in a wide width to make sure there is enough adhesive contact area for a reliable splice. 

EasySplice: Synchronize Reel Speeds

07Synchronize speeds


Make sure the speeds of the new and old reel are synchronized.
This is essential for a secure contact between the two reels. 

Don't cover contact adhesive

08Don’t cover the contact adhesive


Don’t cover the open contact adhesive if you use reinforcement tape or liquid glue in addition to our tesa® EasySplice.
It might negatively influence the adhesive’s performance.
