Double-sided carpet tape for professional users - removable

Product description

tesa® Professional 51960 is the double-sided, extra-strength adhesive carpet tape for professional use. The adhesive sides of the double-sided carpet tape offer varying adhesive strengths, meaning that it holds carpets and rugs in place securely, but can also be removed from the surface underneath with very little difficulty and without leaving any residue. The double-sided carpet tape can be torn by hand and offers craftsmen a high level of convenience. It comprises a fibre-reinforced PP film in combination with an acrylate adhesive mass. Neither moisture nor weak chemicals will damage the adhesive tape.
