tesa® 4580

Highly Permeable Venting tape

Product description

tesa® 4580 is a single-sided tape for venting applications. It is based on a porous nonwoven fabric coated a selected pattern of adhesive dots. The selected design ensures an outstanding air permeability. It is an ideal solution to increase efficiency in your foaming processes.

  • The high air permeability allows the foam to expand fast for efficient foaming process
  • The permeability for air and other gases is homogeneously spread to ensure constant foaming results
  • Works as a barrier against foams to decrease foam leakage and cleaning effort
  • Unwinds gently to avoid curling which makes the handling easier in order to reduce process time
  • Easily torn by hand for an increased working efficiency
  • Is conformable to shaped structures
  • Allows an exchange of moisture and other gases

Main applications

The venting tape is used to cover holes during foaming processes in different industries

  • Designed for appliances where the foam is used to insulate fridges and freezers, as well as to stabilize the body
  • In production of special vehicles such as refrigerator trucks
