Product information

tesa® 4174

Fine line tape for design painting

Product description

tesa® 4174 is an extra-sking tape with a PVC substrate and a natural rubber adhesive mass. The fine line tape, which resists temperatures of up to 150 °C, is suitable for covering sharp edges and is a valuable aid when carrying out paint jobs on cars and motorbikes. Due to the high degree of stretchiness, painters can tackle challenging jobs with ease, e.g. painting bumpers. This supple special adhesive tape can be torn by hand, is easy to handle and can be removed quickly after use.

Main features

tesa® 4174 is suitable for various types of masking applications.

Example applications are:
  • Masking of painted and non-painted substrates (e.g. automotive plastic parts) that require sharp and flat paint edges
  • Two-tone car body masking

To ensure the highest performance possible, our aim is to fully understand your application (including the substrates involved) in order to provide the right product recommendation.
