Product information

tesa® 4215

PVC-free fineline and overmasking tape for design painting in the automotive paint shop

Product description

tesa® 4215 is a high-quality PVC-free fineline tape with a rubber adhesive. It is designed for applications where sharp color edges for two-tone designs are required. The PE backing of tesa® 4215 leads to an overall flexible behavior of the tape, thus allowing application to narrow curves and difficult 3-D shapes.

The temperature resistance of 120°C/1h allows the use of tesa® 4215 in medium-temperature applications, such as car bumper masking.

Standardized and customized applicators for tesa® 4215 are available to ensure efficient tape application.

Main features:

  • Very flexible tape for narrow curves and difficult 3-D shapes
  • Residue-free removal up to drying temperatures of 120°C
  • Easy unwinding, also suitable for overmasking
  • Halogen-free tape design

Main applications

tesa® 4215 is suitable for various types of masking applications. 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.

Example applications are:

  • Car bumper masking applications
  • Masking applications in tight and narrow curves and difficult 3-D shapes
  • Masking with special requirements in regard to PVC or halogen usage
