Don’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.

Trim 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.

05

Check 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 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.

Synchronize 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 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.
