  • Excellent die-cutting properties due to non-woven backing
  • Highly conformable to follow difficult 3D shapes

Product description

tesa® 4987 is a double-sided non-woven industrial mounting and splicing tape with a tackified acrylic adhesive. The premium non-woven tape is, for instance, used for mounting signs and nameplates or other mounting and high performance lamination applications. tesa® 4987 is especially designed to connect flexible materials to one another. The mounting and splicing tape is able to withstand numerous environmental factors such as humidity, UV-light and temperatures of up to 200°C for limited periods of time. The tackified acrylic adhesive makes for an excellent hold on various surfaces, very high tack, and good shear strength. The adhesive is coated on a flexible and conformable cellulose non-woven backing which conforms even to difficult 3D shapes.

Application Fields

tesa® 4987 is ideally used for industrial mounting, high performance lamination, and splicing:
  • Mounting of signs, covers, and nameplates
  • Lamination of insulation materials and foams for HVAC (heating, ventilation, and air conditioning) seal
  • Mounting of plastic bags, dispatch bags, continuous stationery, posters, etc.
  • Splicing of paper and film webs
  • Mounting of door linings in the automotive industry
