Product information

tesa® 4244 PV0

Fineline tape for design painting in the automotive paint shop

Product description

tesa® 4244 PV0 is a flexible soft PVC tape with a natural rubber adhesive for fineline masking if a very sharp paint edge is required, especially on painted or unpainted plastic parts. The 110 µm thickness helps to implement good and sharp paint edges, while the soft PVC of the tapes offers good conformability.

With a temperature resistance of 140°C/1h, tesa® 4244 PV0 is targeting mid-temperature masking applications, such as car bumper masking.

Standardized and customized applicators for tesa® 4244 PV0 are available to ensure efficient tape application.

Main features:
  • Temperature resistance of up to 140°C/1h
  • Conformability with the dimensional change during oven drying
  • Good conformability with multidimensional surfaces
  • Edge does not lift off and residue-free removal

Main applications

tesa® 4244 PV0 is suitable for various types of masking applications.

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

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.
