Product description

tesa® 4688 is a standard cloth tape with a PE-extruded substrate and a natural-rubber adhesive mass. This combination forms the basis for easy handling: the tape is easy to unroll and simple to tear by hand. The repair tape is strong but also sufficiently flexible to be a reliable aid to craftsmen. It can be used for a variety of applications and offers very good adhesion even on rough surfaces. The waterproof and ageing-resistant duct tape is available in seven colours: black, white, blue, yellow, red, silver/matt and green.
